and American White Nationalism
by William A. White
Alexander Dugin, with the help of Arktos’ John Morgan, has
recently published an essay, On White
Nationalism and Other Potential Allies in the Global Revolution. The essay
is almost entirely on point, and is mostly an excellent and impressive
statement of Traditional principles.
However, Dugin errs when it comes to
discussing race and the Jewish question, and displays a misunderstanding of
both the Traditionalist worldview and the realities of race. As an inhabitant
of nearly all-white Russia,
his lack of experience with the negro and lack of understanding of the Jewish
role in America
politics likely contributed to those errors.
Dugin is an advocate of what he calls Eurasianism. Eurasianism seeks a multi-polar international order
based on the organic ethno-cultural unities among the European and Asian peoples,
in opposition to the multiculturalist, one-world internationalism of the
American and British systems—what Dugin calls Atlanticism. There are variants
within Eurasianism, and in the West, Eurasianism has tended to attract the
idiosyncratic types who glory in creating variants just to show they are in
opposition to everyone. For our purposes, though, we shall typify Eurasianism
with its best expression.
Practically, Eurasianism promotes the nationalism of Russia, China,
Iran and India, and a
host of other states, against American imperialism and the American push for a
one world democratic order. However, while attacking the idea of an
ultra-liberal New World Order. Eurasianism often embraces the ideologies of
that order, particularly anti-racism and opposition to anti-Semitism, as well
as Holocaust affirmation and opposition to Adolf Hitler. This contradiction
often reflects the fear of the Jews and of the laws they have caused to be
passed in many states as it does real conviction, but the embrace of these
international list doctrines also creates fatal internal contradictions in the
Historically, Eurasianism draws from diverse philosophical
tendencies. Most prominent is left-wing National Socialism—the wing of the
National Socialist German Worker’s Party which, in the 1920s and 1930s, sought
an alliance between the Reich and Soviet Russia as a check to American-British
imperialism. Eurasianism also draws from an idealized, and mostly hypothesized,
Stalinist national communism. This historically erroneous worldview posits that
Stalin was a great ruler of the Russian people, whose “socialism in one
country” was not Communist in the bad, Jewish sense, but a nationalist reaction
to Trotskyite internationalism.
Lastly, Eurasianism draws from the Radical
Traditionalist worldview of Rene Guenon and Julius Evola, without the
nationalist Socialist interpretations of Savitri Devi. In doing so, Evola’s
actual ties to National Socialism are generally ignored or misrepresented, and
his writings are purged of anti-Semitic and racial statements—a falsifying
revisionism similar to that applied to Stalin.
Yet, at its best, Eurasianism’s ideology of a multi-polar
and nationalist Europe and Asia most likely
describes the world system that will dominate the 21st Century. At its
worst, historical figures—like Anglo-American agent Otto Strasser and his Black
Hand movement—are tortured into new interpretations which support this Twenty-first and not Twentieth Century philosophy.
Alexander Dugin is easily the most important Eurasianist
thinker, though he publishes primarily in Russian and has not been easily
accessible to English- language speakers. Dugin’s essay On White Nationalism was assembled by John Morgan, and is a concise
exposition of Dugin’s philosophy. Dugin’s thesis is succinctly laid out in the
second and third paragraphs which state:
“Those from either the
Right or Left who refuse American hegemony, ultra-liberalism, strategic
Atlanticism, the domination of oligarchic and Cosmopolitan financial elites,
individualistic anthropology and the ideology of human rights, as well as
typically Western racism in all spheres… and who are ready to cooperate with
Eurasian forces in defending multi-polarity, socio-economic pluralism, and a
dialogue among civilizations, we consider too be allies and friends.
“Those on the Right who support the
United States, White racism against the Third World, who are anti-socialist and
pro-liberal, and who are willing to collaborate with the Atlanticists; as well
as those on the Left who attack Tradition, the organic values of religion and
the family, and who promote other types of social deviations- both of these are
in the camp of the foe.”
This is, essentially, the populist philosophy of my friend
Willis Carto and the American Free Press,
as well as the philosophy of modern National Socialism, with two exceptions:
One, it contains an overly broad denunciation of so-called White racism” and
Two, it fails to name or even admit the roles of Judaism
and Zionism- and the Zionist Entity in Palestine- in creating and promulgating American
hegemony, ultra-liberalism, financial elites, human rights, and the rest.
As Dugin continues, it becomes clear this error comes from a
misunderstanding of Traditional philosophy and the realities of race:
consider the White nationalists allies when they refuse modernity, the global
oligarchy, and liberal-capitalism…when White nationalists reaffirm Tradition
and the ancient culture of the European peoples, they are right. But, when they
defend the United States, Atlanticism, liberal or modernity; or, when they
consider the White race, the one which produced modernity in its essential
features, as being the highest and other races as inferior, I disagree
And this is the root of Dugin’s hostility, the belief that
the White race and not the Jews, has been the producer of modernity. This error
leads to Dugin’s misapplication of Tradition to the modern world and his
“I do not believe in any hierarchy among peoples, because
there is not and cannot be any common, universal measure by which to measure
and compare the various forms of ethnic societies and their value systems.”And also that “The idea of the nation is a bourgeois concept concocted
as a part of modernity in order to destroy traditional societies, which are
empires.” From its humble beginning, Dugin’s error balloons, consuming
an entire section of his worldview.
In On White
Nationalism, Dugin cites a criticism of his Fourth Political Theory—the successor
to Gadafi’s Third Political Theory- made by Michael O’Meara, a proponent of
Francis Parker Yockey’s Imperium. Yockey’s theories, though,
derivative of Oswald Spengler’s, and
it is in Spengler’s theory of the culture organism with a culture-soul that we
find what Dugin’s theories lack.
Spengler states, in the Decline
of the West, that individual human beings exist primarily as part of larger
organic wholes. Social stratification- caste- is like the division of functions
between organs in the body, and human beings are like cells within those
organs, each properly dedicated to a specific task. Cumulatively, the culture-organism
is transcendent and possessed of a higher living nature—a soul.
This notion of the organic unity of man is Aryan and
Indo-European in origin, and is similar in its positing of human archetypes to
Platonic idealism, in which individual beings are representations of idealized
forms which emanate from the One creator. The Greek daemon, the Roman victory, the Egyptian ba, and the Nordic fylgja and valkyrie all
reflect this view of transcendence- as they are the ideas with which the
individual seeks unity.
The Radical Tradition of Guenon or Evola presupposes the
existence of a collective culture-soul. Evola, in his Notes on the Third Reich, reiterates his observation from Revolt Against the Modern World on the
importance of the idea of suum cuique- each thing in its place- to Tradition.
The guiding principle of Tradition is Order- Order among man and between them-
and the process of breaking men from this natural social order Evola calls
individuation in his Men Among Ruins.
support multi-polarity and Traditional counter-revolution, one must support
organic social entities with an ethno-cultural basis. Modernity- what Dugin
opposes—is the effort to organize men without regard to these essential
unities. In America,
this Traditional potential is only found in white racial nationalism. Once one accepts the organic ethno-cultural state as the
building block of international order, one has to accept that these states will
limit immigration and expel excessive alien elements which penetrate them.
organism’s integrity requires ethnic and cultural unity, and alien elements,
though they can be absorbed and digested in small quantities, cannot be
integrated into the organism en masse. Like poisonous food, the organism can
either vomit them or die.
Further, in the United States and other
social-democratic nations, the purpose of the always Jewish-sponsored
immigration policies is to destroy the unity of the White ethno-cultural
organism and to cause it to die. The goal is to create multi-ethic,
meaning non-ethic,” states in areas
where Jewish parasitism is dominant, so as to create an undifferentiated mass
which the Jews can exploit and enslave. The Jews are a disease of the social
organism, and the immigrants are a secondary infection. Dugin criticizes the
organic state for fighting a cultural infection- and he is wrong in doing so.
Dugin similarly contradicts himself when he speaks in
support of empire- as a globalist, leveling empire is precisely what Dugin
opposes. An empire is a super-national organism, and it either brings its
component parts together into a single nation, or it dies. Dugin’s
understanding of nationalism only in terms of the bourgeois nationalism of the
French Revolution is too narrow. He knows well that this is not the nationalism
of National Socialism or the better elements of White Nationalism. Dugin’s
multi-polar world is an order established between independent organic
states—and not a détente between global empires seeking to consume each other.
Such a multi-polar world does require, though, what Dugin
says he does not believe in a hierarchy among peoples. Such a hierarchy exists
within a Traditional empire, and would have to exist in a multi-polar world as
well. Order, in fact, requires hierarchy; chaos is the principle driving men to
words equality, individuation, and modernism. As Savitri Devi notes in her Lightning and the Sun, Pharaoh Akhenaton
prayed to praise God for having created the peoples and divided them, assigning
each its place. Respect for this division of the Earth’s peoples is what Dugin
demands—and it requires racial hierarchy and a standard for judgment. Without
some standard for judging peoples and cultures, who is to say that Judaeo-American hegemony is wrong?
In fact, the ability to use Tradition as the basis for a culture
and civilization- and the cultural works and technics an organic unity
produces- is the measure by which human civilizations are judged. The peoples
of Europe and Asia—the M and N
haplogroups—have this ability; the K and L haplogroups—the Jewish and Negro
peoples—do not. Thus, European and Asian peoples are superior. Negroes are
inferior, and the Jews are their own measure of evil. Among the Eurasian
peoples, the Aryan strata- neither the whole white race nor a part from it-
were the spark of all Traditional cultures, and thus, should stand at the
pinnacle of the global order.
Interests of White Americans
Dugin sums up the application of Eurasianism to White
America in one sentence: “We need to save America from its own dictatorship,
which is as bad for the American people as it is all other peoples.”
Many white Americans agree. And, in so far as Dugin means
the white American people by “the
American people,” he is correct. But, America is not the white American
people—it is a multi-cultural empire dominated by Zionists and Jews. And, the
reason American dictatorship is bad for the American people is that it is
foreign, both in race and culture, to the White American people.
Jews have been able to establish dictatorship in America because of America’s origins in rootlessness.
Unlike say, the Boer in South
Africa, American whites did not have a
common ethic origin and unlike Europeans or Asians, Americans roots do not go
back more than three to four hundred years. The Normans
may have conquered the Anglo-Saxons who conquered the Romans
but each was assimilated, on their common racial basis, into a single
ethno-cultural whole. Americans whites conquered and exterminated the Asiatic
Indians, then built their nation on the principles of rootless Masonry. The
American (as opposed to white) nationalist point of reference is the
Constitution- not a culture- and, thus, it has been co-opted by the Jews into
the modern Trotskyist and Zionist, form of neo-conservatism.
What America lacks and needs is a healthy,
Traditionalist white identity; what needs to be done is the dismantling of the
unhealthy, Masonic, democratic, Judaeo-Christian
and Zionist white identity the Jews have marketed to America. Thus, on the intellectual
plane, there is the work Dugin is doing, deconstructing anti-socialist,
pro-liberal, anti-Muslim and anti-nationalist ideologies. And, on the practical
plane, there is the work of making America one of the multi-polar
Traditional states Dugin advocates.
The latter goal requires a massive demographic shift, if America is to
be brought into such an order whole. The attitudes necessary to effect such a
shift, and to bring America
into a new world community, are precisely the anti-immigrant and racist
worldviews Dugin opposes. 38 million blacks, a similar number of legal and
illegal mestizos. 18 million Asians and 6 million Jews live in the United States,
along with 210 million whites.
Perhaps 20 million whites truly believe in the
multiculturalist system. Thus, 120
million people need to leave America
for it to be eligible to participate as a Traditional nation in a Traditional
world order. Perhaps Dugin feels America’s non-whites are simply
yearning to be free in their own nation states. But, 62 million of these
problem peoples—the whole of the mestizo, Asian and Jewish populations—have nations
they could go to, but chose to remain in the United States particularly because
of its liberal internationalist world-view.
And the real problem in the United States
is not the mestizo and Asian populations, which ultimately, are probably
assailable or expellable over time. The problem in the United States
is the 38 million Negroes, who are absolutely inassimilable, and who have
nowhere to go, the 6 million Jews, who are willfully parasitical, and the 20
million or so whites who buy into the internationalist lies. These populations
will have to be forcefully eliminated—or in the case of the whites-converted.
This problem, of an alien anti-Traditional population within
American culture organism which almost as large as Russia will almost certainly be
solved by violence, and, particularly, by the violent expulsion and
extermination of this population from, at first, a portion of the country armed
by whites. The question is when does desperation of circumstances drive enough
whites to take up arms and fight? The proper position of Dugin’s movement in
such circumstances is one of support for whites’ interests and white racism,
because this racism is the response of a healthy organism to an invader, and is
a necessary and inevitable stage in the breakup of the American Empire. When an
ethno-cultural organism exists, it can then be brought into Tradition- but that
organism is going to have to be birthed, violently, from a badly diseased and
Alexander Dugin and his Eurasianism are admirable. Dugin’s
concept of a future multi-polar order is prescient. But, Dugin’s denunciations
of racism, anti-Semitism, and the like are rooted in errors—both in
understanding Tradition, and, in understanding the nature of America and its
One has to wonder how much the same motives which drove
American Conservatives to abandon race and embrace neo or New Conservatism are
driving Dugin’s Eurasianists to introduce anti-racism to the New Right.
American Conservatives, of course, were mostly motivated by fear of the post-
World War II Jewish power. And, when one sees those New-Rightists who refuse to
defy the Jewish media stereotypes of Adolf Hitler and his National Socialism,
and who even adopt them, one wonders what forces are really at work.
Eurasianism, though, could be transformational for America- if it
can accept the reality of the American situation. America is breaking because of the
impossibility of maintaining a multi-racial, inorganic state. The result will
be war, and war is fueled by race and by hatred- when it is anything but a
mercenary enterprise. Thus, Dugin and Eurasianists both have to accept, and
shoulder courage, the violent racism which is coming- because such racism is
the foundation for the movement the American Right must make away from
and democracy- towards a Traditional social form.
This may be different than the racism Dugin does oppose.
Anti-Islamicism and racist dislike of the Third World
are the result of Zionist and Jewish influence. It is the projection outward,
in an unhealthy way, of healthy racial feelings which need to be directed
inwards, at America’s
real racial problems.
But, in the end, all anti-racism is essentially a leveling
philosophy, part of the march towards chaos that is the guiding principle of
the globalism Dugin and all White Nationalists oppose.
