Exiled for three centuries by the Modern, the traditional world suffers from an inability to project its future with the inevitable collapse of the first and last remaining political theory of the Modern.
The 20th century was a century of rivalry between three ideologies. Some managed to reign for several centuries (liberalism), others for decades and years (communism and national socialism). But their demise seems obvious to us. All three ideologies, daughters of the New Age philosophy, have left the space of politics. The era of modernity has come to an end.
We encounter a very similar model of radical Sufism in the writings of the Azerbaijani poet, Imadeddin Nasimi (c. 1369-1417), who also wrote in Turkic (as well as in Farsi and Arabic). Nasimi was a follower and student of Fazlullah Naimi (1339-1401), the founder of a particular trend in Sufism — Hurufism. Hurufism was a current within Sufism, analogous to the Jewish Kabbalah.
Presentation given by Israel Lira on Saturday, April 29 in the framework of the Global Conference on Multipolarity and Fourth Political Theory thanks to the organization of cultural and social movement Nova Resistencia of Brazil, The International Russophile Movement and The Thinkers Forum of China, under the direction of the Tsargrad Institute (Moscow)
Let us look at the main actors in the war unfolding in Ukraine. Here we can refer to the 'geopolitical chessboard' metaphor introduced by Zbigniew Brzezinski. Obviously, the territory of Ukraine, and to some extent Russia, is a 'chessboard' on which the global geopolitical confrontation is taking place. At the same time, Kiev itself, as everyone has long understood, has no independence or subjectivity: it is simply a tool that the main actors, primarily those playing against Russia, move at their discretion. Like any metaphor, the 'geopolitical chess' scheme we propose certainly has weaknesses and limitations, but if it helps to shed light on what is happening, this alone justifies its existence.
In the last few years, more precisely from February-March 2020, I began to wonder if we were not too quick to state that the "unipolar moment" has remained in the past and that the triumph of multipolarity is taking place.
If we place our feet on the Hellenic tradition, which has relevance for European civilization, but also for other nearby or related civilizations, such as Ibero-America, we will see the emphasis given by philosophers like Aristotle to the virtue of courage (ἀνδρεία). Considered the Spartans' highest virtue, as we can deduce from Plutarch's Sayings of the Spartans, according to Aristotle, the virtue of courage involved a willingness to face a serious but not hopeless existential risk for the sake of a worthy end.
my most sincere gratitude to each of you for this event. As a member of Nova Resistência, I’m immensely grateful to Professor Alexandr Dugin and his team, the International Russophile Movement and the Chinese friends of the Thinker’s Forum for making this event a true pillar for the construction of the Multipolar World.
It is quite symbolic (to me at least) that the Multipolarity Global Conference is held on today the 29/5/2023 which marks the 1st anniversary of the martyrdom of my late husband Nader Talebzadeh, Professor Dugin’s close friend and comrade in the resistance movement against the Anglo-American hegemony and deviated cavillations that is being imposed on the world. I would like to also express my deepest condolences for the martyrdom of my friend Daria Dugina.
We're living in interesting times. For more than 30 years, Europeans felt like living at the “End of History” as proclaimed by Francis Fukuyama. No alternative seemed possible to our Liberal-Capitalist system, no other form than Liberalist Democracy. But with the start of the Russian special military operation, it became obvious, that history is moving again. The end of history has ended.
Distinguished speakers, scholars and professionals, I am honored to be part of today’s Global Conference on the Multipolarity (GCM-1). I would like congratulate both participants and listeners of GCM-I to become part of this sacred cause, which once was merely a theoretical manifestation but today we are really experiencing the crumbling of the old Western-centric world order.
In the eyes of the geopolitician, the West appears to be one. This is only the apparent surface of reality. There is an alignment of European leaders with US foreign policy, but the West does not exist as one civilisation.
I am writing to you from a country that is one of the biggest victims of neoliberal globalization and a unipolar world order. In the 32 years that have passed since the collapse of the bipolar world in 1991, the population of Lithuania has decreased by 1/3. Currently, according to the UN, the Lithuanian people is one of the fastest dying peoples in the world. I'm talking about those peoples who have "their" states. Yes, along with the Lithuanian people, Latvians, Ukrainians, Bulgarians, and Serbs are among the most rapidly dying out peoples. And some other peoples of Eastern Europe. And not just Eastern Europe. And not only Europe.
Andrei Perla: Good afternoon, dear colleagues. Allow me to thank all those who took the opportunity to participate in today's round table at the Tsargrad Institute, which was dedicated to analysing the attitude of Russian society towards the Special Military Operation and its prospects.
Peter Nikolayevich Savitsky's works, from letters and poems to scientific publications, make frequent use of the concept of rhythm. The idea of applying rhythm to history is obviously not accidental, especially when one considers the etymology and meaning of the word.
Putin is not dependent on the Russian elite, political parties, oligarchic cartels, social movements, institutions, and all administrative instances of Russia. They are all dependent on him. However, he is certainly dependent on geopolitics, the people, and civilisation.
