The Orthodox Nationalist: A Critique of Dugin’s National Bolshevism – TON 122320

This broadcast is a historical criticism of Dugin's ‘The Metaphysics of National Bolshevism’.

The phrase itself, due to its vagueness, can mean many things. It came into existence over German debates over the ideological meaning of the Leninist takeover of what used to be Russia from 1917 to 1921.

The National Bolshevik idea, according to Dugin, derives from the argument that the Bolshevik movement wasn't essentially Marxist, but primarily anti-individual and even “national.”

Despite endless writings on internationalism and the loathing of all national movements, a civilizational and ethnic nationalism was buried underneath.

It came to refer to those who believed that the Bolshevik movement continued the old Muscovite policy of unifying the “fragments” of Slavdom within its immediate sphere of influence.

That these very same Bolsheviks threw in prison anyone who suggested this very idea doesn't dissuade these erstwhile writers.

They needed to justify and come to terms with the defeat of the Right in Russia, so they pretended the Right actually won, just in an unexpected guise.

Ultimately, the ideology fails due to its vagueness, its eccentric understanding of Soviet policy and the use of equivocation in its descriptions.
