Discussion The Foundations of Geopolitics: The Geopolitical Future of Russia self. Ukraine should not be allowed to remain independent, unless it is cordon sanitaire, which would be inadmissible.

In the United States: Russia should udgin its special forces within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism. For instance, provoke “Afro-American racists”. Russia should “introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, xugin supporting all dissident movements — extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.

It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics. A redditor informed me that i should post this here. Forgive me if i founddations violated any format policy. This book was written by Aleksandr Dugin, an ‘academic’ and outspoken Eurasianist.

Predicting Russia’s Next Move With A Super Old Book |

His ideology has, in the past, been openly fascist. His political party, the Eurasianist Party, never gained much support, and while outspoken, he has never enjoyed significant power. To the West, he is kind of the anti-Kasparov – the perfect boogeyman who says just the right things to confirm our suspicions about Russia’s ambitions. All of this is important to keep in mind, because Dugin does not accurately reflect the Foundationz. He does indeed reflect a somewhat popular sentiment in Russia and the Kremlin’s goals line up with his in some ways, but do not overstate him.


An analogy could be made between Ron Paul in the Bush years.


Libertarianism is fairly popular in the US, it overlaps with much of the standard Republican platform, but it is a folly to put Ron Paul as the centrepiece of Bush’s ideology.

It’s the fact that the ideas in his book, are strategically being implemented right NOW by the Kremlin. After shooting down a Russian plane, now Erdogan and Putin are friends and the pilot that shot the Russian plane is blamed as “a terrorist” when before PM Davutoglu was saying “I ordered the plane down. Instead Dogu Perincek, a Russian agent is thought to be behind much of the Turkish military now. His son is a big enthusiast in Russian archives and talks anti-West conspiracy theories on TV.

Their wives are selling cars in Europe to survive. Though not all credit can be given to Russians. The book emphasizes that Russia must spread Anti-Americanism everywhere: Working with Snowden and even getting him to do propaganda on live TV. People like Rand Paul started appearing all over.

Isolationism became rebranded as “non-interventionism” when in fact, it is one in the same. There was dugni Russian ambassador in the front row when Donald announced geeopolitics “America First” speech and it involved backing off from the world and NATO etc.

Foundations of Geopolitics – Wikipedia

Why lie about meeting with Putin to CNN in a live television interview? What’s the point of lying when everyone can look up the fact that they did meet? They did in fact meet? I was always under the impression that Donald lied about them meeting in order to look cool.

The China thing is in response to the humiliation the Russian got in from the energy deal.

Plus protecting their resources in Siberia. Thank you for your effort in compiling this. Where have the US’s counter intelligence agencies been while this was in the formative stages? I doubt that Russia can annex Ukraine and have a good time. Crimea have galvanised the Ukrainian population that Ukrainian identity and independence is a must, and public opinions of Russia nosedived except for Crimea, which increased.

There’s nothing more powerful on cementing a national identity than a foreign threat. There’s also doubts that the Franco-German bloc would be inherently friendly with Moscow. The direction that the Europeans are going is to have their own European defence and foreign policy. I only see that as a bad thing for Russia, because it means that neither France nor Germany requires an outside great power to counter American influence, because the EU will be enough. Anti-American doesn’t mean pro-Russian.

Of course, this could change. China, which represents a danger to Russia, “must, to the maximum degree possible, be dismantled”. Russia should manipulate Japanese politics by offering the Kuril Islands to Japan and provoking anti-Americanism. If the Chinese are still buttmad about Taiwan, what makes him think that he can grab huge chunks of China, give them compensations, and expect that the Chinese will be happy about this?


Let’s not even go to the discussion that Russia can even defeat China at some way that makes them surrender these regions. But Russia needs to show that it’s a credible power that can stand against China before Japan would even consider Russia as a 2nd choice – let alone, jump ship from its allaince with the US. Relying on anti-Americanism is flimsy. Again, Dugin seems to run this theme that anti-American means pro-Russian. Maybe anti-American isn’t pro-Russian, but it’s certainly in their favor.

Better to have a a bilaterally hostile Europe than a Europe that loves America.

Not saying Russia will sever western relations by any means. We are putting the cart before the horse. On the Franco-German bloc you mention. There are documented links with Russia funding the two leading candidates for the French elections next year, one of which could lead to a referendum to pull France out of the EU.

With Britain also pulling out of the EU, that would leave USA with the only nuclear deterrent to defend the European Union – and we can see the direction the Trump administration oof to be pulling.

In short, Germany won’t matter so much, without Britain and France’s nuclear capabilites. Other than that, fully agree. I wouldn’t go that far on point 1.

The UK and the EU states are still interested on working together. Lancaster House treaty are still in force and are unaffected by Brexit unless either governments made a u-turn to thisbecause the treaty is a bilateral one, not an EU-related treaty, and the best part is not subject to referendum. If the Eurosceptics got one truth in their bags of lies, it’s the idea that anti-EU doesn’t mean anti-Europe.

The UK will have its influence reduced after it leaves the EU, but that doesn’t mean that it will become closed from Europe or the EU, because of Brexit, but only by changes in its internal politics. I think that that’s more a “soft” cut than a direct one – The UK, despite being one of the most powerful states in the EU, was cut off from influence by the French-German trade agreement.

All trade between the largest powers was directed toward the economies of Germany and France. And no, this isn’t just part of the “British character” – the French and Germans hated each other before the FGTA, but are now more than willing to work and collude with each other. A “soft” cut is more appropriate. I guess the problem is with the vagueness of the sentence.

Great way to start a war that Russia could only lose. Ukraine should submit to the Bear because it has no history? I should remind the author that the original capital of Rus was Kiev. You might wish to ask the Ukrainians how they feel about the proposition. So are you denying that the Rus first settled in Novgorod? Interesting that you deny historical reality. So people who understand history are now ”Putinbots”. The fact remains the same.
