What is Duginism and Why Does it Matter?

The Western civilization is a racist, ethnocentric civilization. Every Westerner is a racist…” ~ Dugin

Renegade Editor’s Note: Please check out some of Dugin’s quotes featured below this video. Why is this man hailed as a hero on the Alt Right? He has very friendly relations with Red Ice Radio, Matt Heimbach’s Trad Youth, and Richard Spencer’s Radix/NPI.

The Western civilization is a racist, ethnocentric civilization. Every Westerner is a racist . . . But my opinion is: the civilizations of the West and the East are completely different. The Eastern one is superior in respect to defending herself against the Western racism. . . . The Western European ethnocentrism is a constant . . . All European philosophers are racists. . . .”

We Russians are no nationalists, we never were a nation. When we speak of the “Ours”, it isn’t meant ethnic. The Chechen or the Uzbek are also included. . . .”

What comes to the myth of “the solidarity of the White race”, it is a complete utopia that leads not only to the Holocaust of the Jews, but also to a genocide of the Slavs. The remains of the Third Reich are a basis for this miserable, contradictory and completely false
conception. … I am certain that many non-White peoples of Eurasia are a thousandfold closer to us in spirit and culture than Americans. In this question I am 100% affirmative with the visions of [Eurasianist thinker] L.Gumilev.”

There are African tribes in West-Atlantic shore who breed human slaves to eat them. I find it perfectly reasonable and fully responsible.”

I am a supporter of blacks. White civilization – their cultural values??, false, dehumanizing model of the world, built by them – did not pay off. Everything goes to the beginning of the anti-White pogroms on a planetary scale. Russia saved only by the fact that we are not pure
White. Predatory multinational corporations, oppression and suppression of all others, MTV, gays and lesbians – this is the fruit of White civilization, which is necessary to get rid of. So I am for reds, yellows, greens, blacks – but not for whites. I wholeheartedly on the side of the people of Zimbabwe.”

I was also reading the precious books of [jewish Kabbalist] Gershom Scholem, whom I consider to be the greatest traditionalist thinker.”

An important aspect of the Eurasian worldview is an absolute denial of Western civilization. In the opinion of the Eurasians, the West with its ideology of liberalism is an absolute evil.”

Ukrainians are a race of degenerates that crawled up from sewage. Genocide is in order.”
