The Manifesto of Great Awakening.
Alexander Dugin, Katehon website, 3-3-2021
About Katehon: "We, at Katehon, clearly defend the principle of a multipolar world, and thus we fundamentally support a pluricentric worldview defined by an international balance of powers; we reject and challenge any kind of unipolar world order and global hegemony. Therefore, we pay special attention to global multipolar associations such as BRICS and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). All of our fellow contributors hold firm to the main principles of the continentalist school of geopolitics. In addition, we stress the importance of religious and cultural identities in international relations, and so we closely monitor the ethnic dimension in social processes, conflictual situations and agreements."
In 2020, at the forum in Davos, the forum’s founder Klaus Schwab and Charles, the Prince of Wales, proclaimed a new course for humanity, the Great Reset.
The main idea of the "Great Reset" is the continuation of globalization and the strengthening of globalism after a series of failures: the conservative presidency of anti-globalist Trump, the growing influence of a multipolar world – especially of China and Russia, the rise of Islamic countries like Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and their withdrawal from the influence of the West.
The globalists are going back to the point where Trump and other poles of rising multipolarity had stopped them. And this is where mind control (through censorship and manipulation of social media, total surveillance and data collection of everyone) and the introduction of new technologies play a key role.
The globalist Foundation for Defence of Democracies, which expresses the position of U.S. neoconservative circles, recently released a report recommending to Biden that some of Trump's positions, such as increasing opposition to China, increased pressure on Iran,- are positive, and that Biden should continue to move along these axes in foreign policy.
Thus, the "Great Reset" in geopolitics will mean a combination of "democracy promotion" and "neoconservative aggressive strategy of full-scale domination," which is the main vector of "neoconservative" policy.
At the same time, Biden is advised to continue and increase the confrontation with Iran and China, but the main focus should be on the fight against Russia.
The "Great Awakening" - a scream in the night
The slogan "Great Awakening” was first put forth by American anti-globalists...
It is important that this is happening in the US, where bitterness has raged between the globalist elites and the populists who had their own President, albeit for only four years and stiffened by administrative obstacles and the limitations of their own ideological horizons.
Unencumbered by serious ideological and philosophical baggage, anti-globalists have been able to grasp the essence of the most important processes unfolding in the modern world.
In the USA Alex Jones ends his (alternative tv) programs with the same rallying cry - "You are the Resistance!".
In this case, Alex Jones himself or the activists of QAnon do not have strictly defined worldviews. In this sense, they are representatives of the masses, the same "deplorables" who were so painfully humiliated by Hillary Clinton.
What is now awakening is not a camp of ideological opponents of liberalism, the enemies of capitalism, or ideological opponents of democracy. They are not even conservatives. They are just people - people as such, the most ordinary and simple. But... people who want to be and remain human, to have and keep their freedom, gender, culture, and living, concrete ties to their Homeland, to the world around them, to the people.
The Great Awakening is not about elites and intellectuals, but about the people, about the masses, about people as such.
And the Awakening in question is not about ideological analysis. It is a spontaneous reaction of the masses, hardly competent in philosophy, who have suddenly realized, like cattle before the slaughterhouse, that their fate has already been decided by their rulers and that there is no more room for people in the future.
The Great Awakening is spontaneous, largely unconscious, intuitive and blind. It is by no means an outlet for awareness, for conclusion, for deep historical analysis...
But, on the other hand, it is the beginning of a fundamental historical process. This is how the pole of opposition to the very course of history in its liberal sense is emerging.
This is why the thesis of the Great Awakening should not be hastily loaded with ideological details, whether fundamental conservatism (including religious conservatism), traditionalism, the Marxist critique of capital, or anarchist protesting for protesting's sake.
The Great Awakening is something more organic, more spontaneous and at the same time tectonic. This is how humanity is suddenly being illuminated by consciousness of the nearness of its imminent end.
And that is why the Great Awakening is so serious. And that is why it is coming from within the United States, that civilization where the twilight of liberalism is thickest. It is a cry from the center of hell itself, from that zone where the black future has already partly arrived.
The liberal elites, especially today, control all major civilizational processes.
They control the world's finances and can do anything with them, from unlimited issuing to any manipulation of financial instruments and structures. In their hands is the entire US military machine and the management of NATO allies. Biden promises to reinforce Washington's influence in this structure, which has almost disintegrated in recent years.
Almost all of the giants of High Tech are subordinate to the liberals - computers, iPhones, servers, phones and social networks are strictly controlled by a few monopolists who are members of the globalist club. This means that Big Data, that is, the entire body of information about virtually the entire population of the earth, has an owner and master.
Technology, science centers, global education, culture, media, medicine and social services are completely in their hands. The liberals in governments and power circles are the organic components of these planetary networks which all have the same headquarters.
The intelligence services of Western countries and their agents in other regimes work for the globalists, whether recruited or bribed, forced to cooperate or as volunteers.
One wonders: how in this situation can the supporters of the "Great Awakening" revolt against globalism? How - without having any resources - can they effectively confront the global elite? What weapons to use? What strategy to follow? And, furthermore, on which ideology to rely? - because liberals and globalists around the world are united and have a common idea, a common goal and a common line, while their opponents are disparate not only in different societies, but also within one and the same.
Of course, these contradictions in the ranks of the opposition are further exacerbated by the ruling elites, who are used to dividing in order to dominate. Muslims are pitted against Christians, leftists against rightists, Europeans against Russians or Chinese, etc.
But the Great Awakening is happening not because of, but in spite of all this. Humanity itself, man as eidos, man as common, man as a collective identity, and in all its forms at once, organic and artificial, historical and innovative, Eastern and Western, is rebelling against the liberals.
The Great Awakening is humanity's revolt against the ruling liberal elites. Moreover, it is the rebellion of Man against his age-old enemy, the enemy of the human race itself.
The Great Awakening is a flash of consciousness at the threshold of the Singularity. It is the last opportunity to make an alternative decision about the content and direction of the future. The complete replacement of human beings with new entities, new divinities, cannot simply be imposed by force from above. The elites must seduce humanity, obtain from it - albeit vaguely - some consent. The Great Awakening calls for a decisive “No”!
This is not yet the end of the war, not even the war itself. Moreover, it has not yet begun. But it is the possibility of such a beginning. A New Beginning in the History of Man.
Of course, the Great Awakening is completely unprepared.
As we have seen, in the U.S. itself, the opponents of liberalism lack a fully-fledged ideological horizon. They are trying to save the previous stage of the very same liberal democracy, the very same capitalism, from its late and more advanced stages. And this in itself contains a contradiction.
The contemporary left also has limits in its critique of capitalism, both because it shares a materialist understanding of history (Marx agreed on the need for world capitalism, which he hoped would then be overcome by the world proletariat) and because the socialist and communist movements have recently been taken over by liberals and reoriented from waging class war against capitalism to protecting migrants, sexual minorities and fighting imaginary "fascists".
The right, on the other hand, is confined to its nation-states and cultures, not seeing that the peoples of other civilizations are in the same desperate situation.
Therefore, there is the Great Awakening, but it does not yet have an ideological basis. If it is truly historical, and not an ephemeral and purely peripheral phenomenon, then it simply needs a foundation - one that goes beyond the existing political ideologies that emerged in Modern times in the West itself. Turning to any of them would automatically mean that we find ourselves in the ideological captivity of the formation of capital.
So, in seeking a platform for the Great Awakening that has erupted in the United States, we must look beyond American society and the rather short American history and look to other civilizations, above all to the non-liberal ideologies of Europe itself, for inspiration.
But even this is not enough, because along with the deconstruction of liberalism, we must find support in the different civilizations of humanity, far from exhausted by the West where the main threat comes from..
"The globalists wants to make the world unipolar again in order to move towards a globalist non-polarity, where the elites will become fully international and their residence will be dispersed throughout the entire space of the planet.
This is why globalism brings about the end of the US as a country, a state, a society. This is what the Trumpists and supporters of the Great Awakening sense, sometimes intuitively.
Accordingly, for the salvation of people, peoples, and societies, the Great Awakening must begin with multipolarity.
This is not just the salvation of the West itself, and not even the salvation of everyone else from the West, but the salvation of humanity, both Western and non-Western, from the totalitarian dictatorship of the liberal capitalist elites.
And this cannot be done by the people of the West or the people of the East alone. Here it is necessary to act together. The Great Awakening necessitates an internationalization of the peoples’ struggle against the internationalization of the elites.
Multipolarity becomes the most important reference point and the key to the strategy of the Great Awakening.
Russia's mission: to be at the forefront of the Great Awakening
The most important pole of the Great Awakening is intended for Russia. Despite the fact that Russia has been partly involved in Western civilization, through the Enlightenment culture during the Tsarist period, under the Bolsheviks, and especially after 1991, at every stage - in antiquity as well as in the present - the deep identity of Russian society is deeply distrustful of the West, especially of liberalism and globalization. Nominalism is deeply alien to the Russian people in its very foundations.
Russian identity has always prioritized the common - the clan, folk, church, tradition, nation, and power, and even communism represented - albeit artificial, in class terms - a collective identity opposed to bourgeois individualism. Russians stubbornly rejected and continue to reject nominalism in all its forms. And this is a common platform for both the monarchist and Soviet periods.
After the failed attempt to integrate into the global community in the 1990s, thanks to the failure of liberal reforms, Russian society became even more convinced of the extent to which globalism and individualistic attitudes and principles are alien to Russians.
The rejection of liberalism and globalization has become particularly acute in recent years, as liberalism itself has revealed its deeply repulsive features to Russian consciousness. This justified a certain sympathy among Russians for Trump and a parallel deep disgust for his liberal opponents.
On Biden's side, the attitude to Russia is quite symmetrical. He and the globalist elites in general view Russia as the main civilizational opponent, stubbornly refusing to accept the vector of liberal progressivism and fiercely defending its political sovereignty and its identity.
Of course, even today's Russia does not have a complete and coherent ideology that could pose a serious challenge to the globalists.
In addition, the liberal elites entrenched at the top of society are still strong and influential in Russia, and liberal ideas, theories and methods still dominate the economy, education, culture and science. All of this weakens Russia's potential, disorients society, and sets the stage for growing internal contradictions. But, on the whole, Russia is the most important - if not the main! - pole of the Great Awakening.
This is exactly what all of Russian history has led up to, expressing an inner conviction that Russians are facing something great and decisive in the dramatic situation of the End Times, the end of history.
But it is precisely this end, in its worst version, that the globalist project implies. The victory of globalism, nominalism and the coming of the Singularity would mean the failure of the Russian historical mission, not only in the future but also in the past. After all, the meaning of Russian history has been directed precisely towards the future, and the past was only preparation for it. And in this future, which is now approaching, the role of Russia is not only to take an active part in the Great Awakening, but also to stand in the forefront of it, proclaiming the imperative of the Internationale of Peoples in the fight against liberalism, the plague of the 21st century.
Russia awakening: an imperial renaissance
Russia has never been "just a country", much less "just one among other European countries.” For all the unity of our roots with Europe, which go back to Greco-Roman culture, Russia at all stages of its history has followed its own particular path.
This also had an impact on our firm and unwavering choice of Orthodoxy and Byzantinism in general, which largely determined our estrangement from Western Europe, which chose Catholicism and later Protestantism.
In the modern age, this same factor of profound distrust of the West was reflected in the fact that we were not so affected by the very spirit of Modernism in nominalism, individualism, and liberalism.
And even when we borrowed some doctrines and ideologies from the West, they were often critical, i.e. they contained in themselves the rejection of the main - liberal-capitalistic - way of development of Western European civilization, which was so close to us.
Russia's identity was also greatly influenced by the Eastern - Turanian - vector. As the Eurasianist philosophers, including the great Russian historian Lev Gumilev, have shown, the Mongol statehood of Genghis Khan was an important lesson for Russia in centralized organization of the imperial type, which largely predetermined our rise as a Great Power since the 15th century, when the Golden Horde collapsed and Muscovite Russia took its place in the space of North-East Eurasia.
This continuity with the geopolitics of the Horde naturally led to the powerful expansion of subsequent eras. At every turn, Russia has defended and asserted not only its interests, but also its values.
Thus, Russia has turned out to be the heir to two empires that collapsed at approximately the same time, in the 15th century: the Byzantine and the Mongol empires.
Empire became our fate. Even in the 20th century, with all the radicalism of the Bolshevik reforms, Russia remained an empire against all odds, this time in the guise of the Soviet empire.
This means that our revival is inconceivable without returning to the imperial mission laid down in our historical destiny.
This mission is diametrically opposed to the globalist project. And it would be natural to expect that in their decisive rush the globalists will do everything in their power to prevent an Imperial Renaissance in Russia.
Accordingly, we need exactly that: an Imperial Renaissance.
Not to impose our Russian and Orthodox truth on the other peoples, cultures and civilizations, but to revive, fortify and defend our identity and to help others in their own renaissance, to fortify and defend their own as much as we can.
Russia is not the only target of the globalist project, although in many ways our country is the main obstacle to the execution of their plans.
But this is our mission - to be the "Katechon", ""the one who withholds", preventing the arrival of the last evil in the world.
In the eyes of the globalists, other traditional civilizations, cultures and societies are also to be subject to dismantling, reformatting and transformation into an undifferentiated global cosmopolitan mass, and in the near future to be replaced by new - posthuman - forms of life, organisms, mechanisms, or their hybrids.
Therefore, the imperial awakening of Russia is called upon to be a signal for a universal uprising of peoples and cultures against the liberal globalist elites.
Through rebirth as an Empire, as an Orthodox Empire, Russia will set an example for other Empires - the Chinese, Turkish, Persian, Arab, Indian, as well as the Latin American, African… and the European.
Instead of the dominance of one single globalist "Empire", the Russian awakening should be the beginning of an era of many Empires, reflecting and embodying the richness of human cultures, traditions, religions, and value systems.
Towards the victory of the Great Awakening
If we add together US Trumpism, European populism (both right and left), China, the Islamic world and Russia, and foresee that at some point the great Indian civilization, Latin America, and Africa, which is entering another round of decolonization, and all the peoples and cultures of humanity in general may also join this camp, we have not mere scattered and confused marginals trying to object to the powerful liberal elites leading humanity to the final slaughter, but a fully-fledged front including actors of various scales, from great powers with planetary economies and nuclear weapons to influential and numerous political, religious and social forces and movements.
The power of the globalists, after all, is based on insinuations and "black miracles". They rule not on the basis of real power, but on illusions, simulacra, and artificial images, which they maniacally try to instill in the minds of mankind....
The Great Awakening means that we have figured out the essence of that fatal, both murderous and suicidal strategy of “progress” as the globalist liberal elites understand it.
And if we understand it, then we are capable of explaining it to others. The awakened can and must awaken everyone else...
