It's not entirely irrelevant to note that the US Republican Party is solidly behind several of Dugin's obsessions such as the dominance of religionism in political life, a strong desire for white-skinned people to dominate all others and reduce these others to little more than serfs, and a mindless adoration of authoritarianism (just look at the way Republicans drooled and salivated over the sight of Homeland Security goons kidnapping and assaulting unarmed civilians, violating their most basic rights with no risk of consequences). Seems to me like Putin is more than 60% of the way to ensuring the USA collapses into mindless chaos, fueled by those very Republicans who believe, in their tiny ignorant minds, they are "making 'murka great again."
