I got bored supervising the park today and tuned into the US House Intelligence Committee hearings. After several glasses of Canadian Club and chocolate liqueur, I took to the internet and found myself balls deep in Russian geopolitical philosophy.
A book called Foundations of Geopolitics piqued my interest. Published in 1997 by Aleksandr Dugin (Putin's version of Steve Bannon ), Foundations outlines plans for the construction of a Eurasian-centric new world order, with Russia's use of destabilization and the fostering of global multipolarity as its methods of doing so. The book has evidently been popular among Russia's military elite for quite some time, and the parallels between Russia's actions under Putin and the policy goals it outlined in 1997 are chilling (a few examples - Russian incursions in Georgia/Ukraine, interference in US elections, arms deals with Iran/Serbia, providing assistance to Assad in Syria, Brexit, desired breakup of NATO).
For those of you also curious about the philosophy that underpins the actions of Putin's Russia, get started with the below links.
These are interesting as well:
Good day, shitworms.
