The discourse to American friends. 12.06.2015
Vladimir Putin's name is known throughout the world. Alexander Dugin's name, not so much. But to people in the know, Alexander Dugin is a very important name, as the Russian public intellectual says what Putin thinks. The Agenda examines the man who has been called "Putin's brain." Does two personalities really know each other? How close they are? What is the extent of Dugin's influence. Political analyst Michael Millerman the translator of many Dugin's works into American tries to answer those questions. But the question rests: is the Fourth Political Theory advocated by Dugin really affect Russian politics? Judging on the influence of Eurasian ideas it should.
There are more modern democracies in the world than there were 50 years ago, but confidence in the institutions of those democracies - parliaments, elections, politicians - appears to be waning. How much trust do citizens have in the hallowed symbols of democratic rule? Are we confident enough to think that democracies should be established in countries which have remained immune to its charms like Russia and China? Francis Fukuyama, Alexander Dugin and Ivan Krastev join Steve Paikin to debate the current state of Western democracies and how differing perceptions about them are causing geopolitical conflicts.
In today's world, the impression is growing that politics has ended – at least the politics that we used to know. Liberalism stubbornly fought it out with its political enemies, which had offered alternative recipes – with conservatism, monarchism, traditionalism, fascism, socialism, and communism – and, finally, at the end of the 20th century, it beat them all. It would have been logical to surmise that politics would become liberal, while all of liberalism's opponents, having turned up on the periphery, would begin to rethink strategies and to form a new front: the periphery against the centre (Alain de Benoist). But at the beginning of the 21st century everything followed a different script.
