Dugin believes that Atlantis and Hyperborea were engaged in an ancient war over their totally different value sets and that this war continues to this day. Dugin believes that it is the ultimate theological destiny of Russia to lead modern day Hyperborean societies — including not only Russia, but all of Eurasia, from Korea to India to Portugal — away from a corrupt earthly existence and back to the pure, divine spiritual knowledge of the original Hyperboreans, resulting in the end of our world and the transformation of humanity to a divine existence.

Understanding the threat that America and the West face helps us to organize against it. We must unite against a foreign attempt to destroy our country by sowing chaos in our system by promoting neo-fascist causes.
We must reject the appeals of the far right and of the nationalists in all of our societies, recognizing them as a foreign influence, and expel them from our system as a body rejects an infection. United in our resolve to ensure the survival of the Republic and the freedoms for which it stands, we will get involved in local politics by joining a school or planning board, or running for town council or county commission, to safeguard the integrity of the system at the ground level.
