I haven’t posted as many articles in recent weeks because I’ve been doing a lot of research on Alexander Dugin, the man they call “Putin’s brain”. While some dispute how influential he is, my contacts in Russia suggest he does, in fact, have significant influence over how Vladimir Putin sees the world.
Ideally, Konstantin, why not do both? If you can be so persuaded, perhaps do the podcast first?
If it’s a serious subject, article. Can be read at your own pace. Can refer back to sections you need to more easily. Can be partially read and picked back up more easily. Can be read anywhere without disturbing anyone else. Can be forwarded to people who are still not comfortable with podcasts and other internet content. Of course, most of those people are over 50, who might not be so important to influence (not saying that snarkily - it’s just that more people who actually understand the danger of a man like Putin are over 50 anyway. It’s younger people who didn’t receive the same education in school who need to understand the truth.). I guess I think it depends on who your primary audience is.
Article please… I can send a copy to family members who are too busy to listen but read every morning doing the daily business…
Hi Konstantin - would be useful to add your views as to why Dugin's daughter was assassinated in what was a farcical looking GRU/FSB operation
Slightly prefer podcast but either would be great- thanks
Ps. I’m going to listen to/read either
I voted podcast however I like reading articles too
Looking forward to this one, one of the guests on Triggernometry whom I followed for a little while on youtube Will Knowland became a simp for Dugin but unlike him I was horrified by the interviews I saw of Dugin, a highly intelligent but also highly sinister individual. Would prefer both podcast first to get a lighter overview and then in writing for the deep plunge.
Which is less time-consuming effort?
A podcast is better for me. I would really like to find out more about this man.
Yes - I was going to interview him on Russian Eurasianism for my PHD dissertation however Covid and then the war intervened. Do not know when or if I will get to do it - especially after what happened to his daughter. They only have to be lucky once. I would sincerely like to see the article in whatever form.
Cracking beard; pity about the politics. Podacst for me, btw.
Podcast w transcript and/or complementary article.
Konstantin, I came here to write that I am particularly interested in what you have to say about this. So, i would like you to choose the format that YOU would be able to put the most into.
Thank you. I wil. I found a few of his debates that are interesting. He speaks strongly about preserving other ways of life but i always return the thought Putin and his allies seem to be preserving the power of fellow autocrats.
