Russian professor, geo-political theorist and activist Alexander Dugin recently gave an interview about efforts by the so-called West (which is in fact anti-Western in every traditional sense) to undermine Russian resistance to the US-led globalist order. An obscene and iconoclastic female protest band has suddenly become the darlings of Barack Obama, Madonna, the Wall Street Journal and the mainstream media in the West. Professor Dugin makes the case that an information war is taking place and the elites of the West are raising a ruckus over this band in an attempt to undermine Russian influence and resistance while attempting to exert external power. The goal of such people is not ‘free speech’ but to fragment Russian society and undermine its traditional institutions. This is the same agenda that is in full swing across the Occident (and even beyond) today. As Dugin says at one point in the interview:
There are people who hate us, who want to suppress, conquer and destroy us, to bring us down to our knees, to destroy our shrines, to tear the last attempt at resistance out of us…. Gradually the West has destroyed its own tradition, its own empires, and its own religion, and now it is dealing with the rest of the world.
