When President Donald Trump was asked about new reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin apparently had opposition leader Aleksei Navalny poisoned, he predictably refused to condemn the Kremlin and cast doubt on the evidence. “We haven’t had any proof yet, but I will take a look,” Trump said, s
Secular society is the bedrock of modernity, but it tends to crystallize around a very ‘flat’ view of social and human potential. In any case, Trump has created a sense in many with not conceptual tools to analyze the situation of being ‘someone else’s’ man, and this often revolves around the obscure question of a Putin connection. The thinking surrounding the phenomenon of the Manchurian candidate points to it but it doesn’t really go far enough.
A lot of discussion surrounds the issue of fascism but while that is very much the point, one gets the feeling that the destructive effect springs from his not being a Hitler: a completely idiotic stand-in has actually inflicted tremendous harm on democracy: perhaps the real point.

Is trump a fascist drone? Is trump under hypnosis?

Although Donald Trump now claims the whole thing is a “hoax” — his favorite term to discredit any story that’s true — the president was clearly told by intelligence officials that Russia was paying bounties to Afghan fighters to kill American troops. Over the weekend, the New York Times reported tha
Flynn was secretly a well-paid agent of foreign interests while serving as Trump’s national security adviser.
In the context of this interesting post at CP it is worth a look at our study of the eonic effect and its viewpoint on modernity, revolution, democracy and its continuation in the projected socialist/communist version of democracy that emerged in the revolutions of 1848.

Russia was happy that global warming opened up Arctic oil, but the melting of permafrost poses a huge threat to its hydrocarbon heartlands
The forces driving the global right are concealed from view and it is important to distinguish the attempt from possible failure: Trump ended up a parody of a fascist…
The question of russiagate has never been properly appreciated in public, in part due to the muddle of the left over Putin…
Even as it is pointed the point doesn’t seem to sink in that Trump, perhaps a faux fascist manque, is serving better as a force to undermine and degrade american democracy in the hidden global complot to destroy the liberal world. At every stage Trump acts to further this hidden ‘conspiracy’, explicit with Putin, and explicit with figures like Dugin…The mystery of Trump’s subservience here remains an unknown…
The liberal idea has become obsolete: Vladimir Putin
Interview with The Financial Times
On the eve of the G20 summit, Vladimir Putin spoke with The Financial Times Editor Lionel Barber and Moscow Bureau Chief Henry Foy.
It is hard to make out the details but we can see, or suspect, that Trump is caught up in a larger global conspiracy to undermine democracy. Putin’s statement that liberalism is obsolete is a part of that trend. Let me say I could make a better claim here than the disgusting Putin as to the limits of liberalism: we have tried to suggest that democracy has not truly ever arisen and that a real socialist democracy is needed to actually found the idea. We can thus critique the liberal realm but the degenerate kleptocracy and nauseating aftermath of bolshevism in degenerates like Putin is hardly the future, old Dugin, that igor to frankenstien, notwithstanding…
Russia never seems to get lucky: it is a key member of the modern system yet missed most of the modern transition, democracy, moved desperately into bolshevism making an even greater mess, and now is beset with the grotesque aftermath of that, preying on the world system with svengali aspirations to a postliberal postmodern postcivilization form of near barbarism. How resolve the russian riddle. In the nonce, the Putins would resolve the american riddle with injections of Trump formations.
The conspiracy is pursued further at The Gurdjieff Con and there is a hidden anti-democratic spiritual fascism stalking the world’s democracies…
Few cultures had the potential possibilities of the United States and yet we can see already that it has moved into failure and a dangerous one at that. We might say the same for the Russia of Putin…
