The world is moving towards post-history and post-humanity, towards destruction of any identity, said philosopher, political scientist and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan in an interview to the BelTA Belarusian channel published on March 23.
Kurginyan noted that a rapid rejection of the previous five to seven thousand years of human history has been taking place over the recent twenty years. In his opinion, this is a rejection for the sake of a post-human world.
“And it will obviously be rejected by say 2050, which is exactly what post-history and post-humanity are,” the philosopher stressed.
Kurginyan explained that people used to rely on certain identity. For example, Hammurabi had a religious identity, and Lenin had a Soviet one.
“In any case, some kind of an identity existed. Now it is being rejected. Every time you hear ‘a diffuse identity’ – what does it mean? It means you have no identity. Right? No carcass of personality,” Kurginyan noted.
The political scientist added that the West is the author of the concept of “diffuse identity,” and this concept is incompatible with the idea of “spiritual bonds” that President of Russia Vladimir Putin declares. Kurginyan referred to forced foster care as an example of the destruction of humanism, and he noted that this is just an aspect of something larger.
“Therefore, everything is moving towards a non-human condition. To me, it means the hell, the reign of Grand Inquisitor, whatever, but it is something non-human. There is no room for Man there,” Kurginyan said.
