The Ontology of the Denoted in Traditionalism
What is the semiotic structure of Traditionalism, i.e. of Tradition - or, if you like, of the 'primordial tradition'? This structure represents, with respect to specific traditions, a kind of meta-language that generalises the paradigmatic properties of specific traditions as specific languages. That is, we are dealing with a generalising set of signs, which we can try to ascribe to the field of the signifier.

THE UNITED STATES COURT AGAINST THE IDEOLOGY OF PROGRESS

The fact is that the only branch of the US government that has not yet discredited itself was until recently the courts. Their authority was unquestionable for all political forces. It is believed that corruption and ideological lobbying in the judiciary failed to take complete control. And now the judges appointed under Trump have made their move. All this requires very serious reflection.

Traditionalism and Semiotics
The purpose of this article is to examine the figure of "the Antichrist" and the semantic field of "the end of times" without reference to any one particular religious tradition.
But the figure of the "Antichrist" (Ο Αντίχριστος) has such a tie - to Christianity. Consequently, we can say that we are considering not only and not so much directly the Christian figure of the Antichrist, but also his analogues. This leads us to the theme of traditionalism.

The Eurasian Turn of Russia

Russia is very big, a huge continental ship. It is difficult to move it quickly onto a different course because of its bulk, but continuing inertia towards the abyss is also not an option. There is therefore a very complicated problem of the timing of Eurasian reforms (and there is no other in our situation).
Until 1991, the Soviet Union followed a single path, it was going in an unknown direction.
At that point a dilemma presented itself: change course

THE REJECTION OF THE BOLOGNA PROCESS AND THE IDEOLOGICAL CONVULSIONS OF THE ÉLITE

Let us talk about the rejection of the Bologna Process [Editor's note: This is the reform process of the higher education system at international level, which began in 1999 at the University of Bologna, from which it takes its name. This agreement has enabled an almost unified system of recognition and equivalence of academic qualifications. Many European States adhere to the Process, but for the last three years there has been a gradual abandonment of the convention]. The focal point is a question of principle. The introduction of the Bologna System was part of an overall project: the full integration of Russia into the global world, which means adopting all the norms and rules of the West. This was not just about education, but has been the main strategy of the Russian government since 1991. The adaptation of all standards of living - education, economy, culture, science, politics, technology, fashion, art, education, sports, media - to the norms of the modern West was the main goal of all reforms. This applied to everything and was the main goal of the authorities under both Yeltsin and Putin. The implementation of the Bologna system is an infinitesimal element of this overall strategy.

Russian code

By engaging in direct confrontation with the West during the SMO, even though the West itself participates through its Ukrainian proxy structure, which cannot be called a 'country', Russia is forced to defend its sovereignty on all levels. In terms of military, economic and formal policy, this is quite obvious, but the West is much more than a political-military-economic structure: it is a civilization with a fundamental program code. Everything else is derived from this code: weapons, economy, politics, culture, education, science, media, etc. Russia is now forced to confront the whole spectrum and, in general, the Western code itself.

What is the essence and meaning of the Russian Armed Forces' special operation in Ukraine

Few people feel what is happening today more acutely than Alexander Dugin. Few people have been more deeply immersed in the events in Ukraine all these eight years. Some follow him, defending the Russian idea, others consider him almost the incarnation of evil. But no one is indifferent to his ideas.

Technology is the absolute enemy of man

In the case of network technologies (technology) - Google, twitter, youtube, facebook, instagram, etc. - we see a very important phenomenon: they do oppose Russia not because they depend on the U.S. government. They do not depend on it. They are the tools of the globalists, of a supranational oligarchy that no one elected. And no one gave them the right to set their own rules on a global scale.

End of history that has never happened and Russian war on the liberal order

 

End of History thesis
From an ideological point of view, the world is still living in the shadow of the controversy of the 1990s between Francis Fukuyama and Samuel Huntington. Whatever criticism may be levelled at the theses of both authors, their importance has not been diminished in any way, as the dilemma still remains and, moreover, is still the main content of world politics and ideology.

Ethnosociology of Ukraine in the context of military operation

Thorough understanding of the special military operation in Ukraine requires a preliminary explanation: what, in the broadest sense of the word, are we dealing with? The concepts of “nation”, “nationality”, “people”, “ethnos” are totally confused, and hence those of “Russians”, “Ukrainians”, “Little Russians”, etc. We should first give an ethno-sociological map and distribute the concepts with which we operate in the analysis of this conflict.

Nationalism: criminal fiction and ideological impasse

Probably only few people paid serious attention to the fact that the Fourth Political Theory, which I adhere to, pays the most serious attention to the criticism of nationalism. Most striking is the criticism of liberalism and the rejection of Marxist dogma. But equally necessary and fundamental is the radical rejection of not just nationalism, but even the nation.

The geopolitical background of the conflict in Ukraine

I started to develop geopolitics 30 years ago. When Russia only started to feel itself the part of the Global Civilization, Global West, and everybody was optimistic becoming the part of this Humanity: Civil Rights Theory, Human Rights Theory, the Global World. We entered in this process we accepted the Western Identity, we have abandoned Soviet Identity, we have totally forgotten the Tzarist pre-Soviet identity and we try to be like everybody else. And in that moment not being too much engaged in this Soviet system, neither in Liberal System, I have discovered the geopolitics formulated by British authors like Halford Mackinder, who tried to explain the Great Game between British Empire and Russian Empire in the terms of Sea Power and Land Power.

War as reality check

Information and Reality
War is always a reality check. What precedes and accompanies it, as a rule, has a virtual character and is, if not pure disinformation (from all sides), then close to it. And it is almost impossible to catch those topics and theses which correspond to the real state of affairs. These are the laws of the correlation of the information sphere and reality.
