The Sacral Authority of Eurasia

28 February 2005
On February 26, 2005, the EURASIAN UNION OF YOUTH met in Alexandrov (Russia)
for a congress that concerned itself with the destiny and greatness of
Eurasia. About 400 people attended. Its host, Alexander Dugin (head of the
MOVEMENT EURASIA), chose the monastery of Ivan Grosny ("the Terrible") as
the ideal place from which to send the message of Eurasia's sacred mission
into the world. This particular monastery symbolizes a stage: henceforth,
reprisals will be dished out after all wrongs committed against Russia today
will be undone after the new (final) age has unfolded itself. Dog heads
represent the devouring of the rotten system that is about to collapse.
Alexandrov is located about 70 miles from Moscow (the Third Rome). Several
people spoke at the event, including yours truly. In the background, the
images of Sergei Eisenstein's classic film IVAN THE TERRIBLE (1945) were
reflected off the old white stone walls.
In one of his speeches, Alexander Dugin said, "Eurasians always viewed
authority as sacral. We recognize that authority is sacred, that it is the
maximum form of service, the maximum degree of spiritual pressure - to
dominate. This kind of authority is a spiritual experience. But we do not
love authority for authority's sake. What calls itself 'authority' today
simply does not correspond to the term. Today's political elites in Russia
simply do not understand the historical pressure which weighs on them.
Nowadays, authority is merely at a feeding trough and a warm place. ... Our
native land is threatened. ... We have been sentenced. There is a unipolar
world which is building a global model in which the Russian space is
considered an object that can be directly influenced. ... It is necessary
that we oppose this process. And if it is not us Eurasians that will do
this, then nobody will."
A young Orthodox priest, Father Igor Shestakov, said, "In this hall in
Alexandrov, the steps of the Terrible Tsar are still audible. He ruled with
an iron fist and unified Russia. He acted in the interests of the Russian
state and all of Europe and all the then-known world. In the name of this
great figure, we can now see the beginning of a new Russian state which is
embodied in this youth movement. All the servants that surrounded Ivan the
Terrible were young, and they wished to serve the state with their blood (an
evangelical concept), not sparing their stomachs."
The press-secretary of the MOVEMENT EURASIA, Valery Korovin, said, "The
center of the sea civilization was England, and then her successor, the USA.
A land civilization is something completely different. It is a reasonable,
contemplative and spiritual set of various peoples that originated in the
great open spaces of the Eurasian continent. Today, the sea civilization
considers itself universal and tries to impose its model of civilization
everywhere, unifying peoples and cultures, erasing any distinctions.
Eurasians support the preservation of all sets of peoples and cultures in
their original form and oppose the unipolar process of globalization under
the direction of the USA."
Justin Cowgill, from the NATIONAL ALLIANCE (USA), said, "Although I live in
Russia, I consider myself an American patriot. I love America. I spent six
years in the United States Marine Corps of which I am very proud. However, I
am opposed to America's policy of the last 50 years. As traditionalists and
conservatives say, America has become post-American America. Our foreign
policy has nothing to do with the general interests of Americans and
American security. Traditional American culture has nothing to do with
globalization. And it hurts to me to realize that people associate
international corporations with America. American culture is traditionally
isolationist. It is necessary to remember that the strongest antiglobalist
movements are in America. I, as well as many others, know that Europe has
high hopes for Russia for the construction of a continental block to balance
powers with America. This would be good for the whole world. I ask myself:
Why do our leaders try to destroy the concept of America in the name of the
post-American empire? America more and more resembles a police state. I hope
that, within the framework of our union, we can all work together at the
construction of a multipolar world where all cultures and people can live

I want to send you greetings from Germany. As a member of the National
Democratic Party of Germany (NPD), I have been active in the fight for a
free Europe for quite a while. Like in Russia, more and more young people
are waking up in Germany. These young revolutionaries are sick of the
liberal-capitalist system and want to create a new socialist order.
On 13 February of this year, 8,000 nationalists marched in Dresden to
commemorate the innocent victims of the Anglo-American terrorist attack in
1945. This cowardly and vicious bombing raid was not only meant to wound
Germany, but also to send a signal to Russia. Since the German Reich was
technically already defeated, this unnecessary attack of the Western Allies
was meant to weaken the morale of the Soviet Union. After all, Dresden was
situated in the future sphere of influence of Russia. Yesterday (as today,
like in Afghanistan and Iraq), the Anglo-American warmongers wanted to
display their military might, with total disregard to the dreadful suffering
of the civilian population.
Russia and Germany were fighting against each other in World War II. This
was partly the fault of the Western warmongers Churchill and Roosevelt who
wanted the German and Russian armies to bleed each other to death. To honor
the memory of the fallen heroes of both sides, this tragedy must always be a
reminder that only together will Russia and Germany be able to withstand the
forces of disintegration within and without their respective borders.
The eternal Teutonic-Slavic Alliance must be solidified with a new Rapallo
Treaty. This treaty, signed in 1922, marked a glorious partnership between
our two nations. Both Germany and Russia benefited from this agreement, with
economic aid and exchange of technologies crossing the borders regularly.
As General Otto Ernst Remer, veteran of World War II and a long-time
advocate of German-Russian cooperation, said in 1992, "The principle of
Western politics has been for a hundred years: Germans and Russians must be
enemies and exterminate each other. In order to achieve this lucrative goal,
the Anglo-American capitalists triggered the First and Second World War and
are now preparing for the third. ... We want a new Rapallo. Rapallo means
today: Europe from the English Channel to the Ural, the resurrection of
Europe, the end of Anglo-American imperialism in Europe and the end of
Zionist blackmail of Germany."
Whenever, in the history of our peoples, Germans and Russians worked
together, it was for the benefit of both our nations, for the benefit of
Europe's freedom, against imperialist exploiters (like Napoleon yesterday)
or alien occupants (like the US and its lackeys today). This is why Germany
and Russia must again strive to reach a mutually beneficial agreement, to
work hand in hand to defend Europe's integrity against the lecherous
In the spirit of wise Lenin who, as the only statesman of the time,
condemned the oppression of the German people through the injustice of the
Versailles mandate, I say, "Glory and honor to the Russian people!"
