_ During a session of the Eurasian Movement of Russia, held on May 8th 2014 in Moscow, Jurij Kofner, head of the Eurasian Movement, presented his “Eight theses on the developement of Eurasianism as a socio-political movement in the early 21-st century”.
“Eurasianism appeals to the connection of people on the grounds of the denial of Western postmodernism – no matter wether it is capitalist, fascist or communist. “Workers of the World Unite ” – the Communists appeal. This means: to connect people deprived of everything, but seeking to take possession of the material riches of the world. “Join all who have learned the Godly Truth” – say we. This means: people shall join together who have understood the superiority of religious and spiritual values over Western atheitsm and postmodernism and are ready to bring forth a strong will to restructure the World according to features and requirements of the Holy Truth.”

1. Eurasianism is a pro-integration movement based on pan-Eurasian patriotism. Its aim is to unite the peoples of Central Eurasia within a Eurasian Union and thus it is opposed to ethnic separatism.
2. Eurasianism is a identarian movement in the sense of building a pan-Eurasian nationalism basen on the civilizational, national and ethnich identities of the peoples of Central Eurasia. The movement is focused on reviving the national history, culture, traditions and values of those peoples. A such Eurasianism is opposed to Westerniztion and postmodernism.
3. Eurasianism is a national liberation movement with the aim of liberating the pan-Eurasian region from the Western finiancial neocolonial yoke. It’s opponent is the neocolonial status of the post-Soviet countries as raw material colonies to the West and its final goal is the complete economic, cultural and political sovereignty of the peoples of the Eurasian Union. There are different degrees of severity to this struggle: from an armed insurrection against the Pax Americana (Newrussia) to inter-political intrigues within the established elite (Russia, Kazahstan and so on).
4. Eurasianism is a popular movement opposed to transnational oligarchism and postliberalism. Therefore, we demand a new form of democracy and economy: democy and a solidarian economy.
5. Eurasianism is a statist movement. Its objective is to prevent all color revolutions. But it’s not just thoughtless support of the ruling elite. We do understand that the color revolutions, organized be the U.S. State Department, do not occur out of nothing. They thrive on the soil of social injustice. Thus we fight not only the “triggers” of color revolution (ie. the fifth column), but foremost the original cause: social injustice, the oligarchic system, the lack of socio-economic progress. We defend statism, but we are also in favor of the reformation State we defend. Otherwise defence against external enemies will be meaningless.
6. Eurasianism as a metapolitical movement, but not a party. Central Eurasia is in need of a widespread “staff change”.
7. Eurasianism is part of the international movement of the Fourth political theory. It seems necessary to create a new “Fourth Way” international alliance.
National interpretations of the Fourth political theory (some examples):
Russia-Eurasia – Eurasianism.
Arab world – Kaddafi’s jamahiriya.
South America – Bolivarianism-Chavism (liberation theology, Christian socialism).
China – Sun Yat-sen’s political theory (The Three Principles; The Kingdom of Truth against the Kingdom of Force).
India – Gandhi’s non-violence philosophy (satyagraha, “The Path of Truth”).
The West – “Occupy Wall Street “, the Identarian movement.
The main opponents of the Fourth political theory are postmodernity, American imperialism and materialism, the New World Order, Western corporate media, NATO, postliberalism, gender-mainstreaming.
8. Eurasianism is a spiritual and religious movement which appels to the priority of spiritual (absolute) over material (relative) values. The Eurasian Movement sets a Fourth way (the first way being liberalism, the second – communism, the third – fascism). The Fourth way for Christians is Christianity, for Muslims – Islam, for Buddhists – Buddhism and so on. Therefore Eurasianism should be a movement of non-violent “liberation” of peoples and individuals based on traditional religious and cultural heritages.
