YET EVEN WITHOUT the benefit of Saint-Yves’s account synarchy seemed to flourish. In The Sion Revelation Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince argue that during the years entre deux guerres synarchy made its way through French right-wing politics.20 It then found a home in Vichy France, went underground, and may even be seen in the occult landscaping of François Mitterrand, who created a new “psychogeography” of Paris. The pyramid in the courtyard of the Louvre, familiar to readers of The Da Vinci Code, and the “stargate” at La Grande Arche de la Défense, along with other sites, were created by Mitterrand during his time as French president.21 These were laid out according to an esoteric design that, Picknett and Prince argue, ultimately leads back to synarchy.

Picknett and Prince even argue that the European Union, which we can say began with the establishment of the European Coal and Steel Community in 1950, is an outgrowth of synarchy.22 Saint-Yves had lobbied vigorously for a Europe united into a single, synarchic state, with a hierarchical structure not dissimilar to that of the church. This aim was echoed, say Picknett and Prince, by Winston Churchill when in 1946 he called for the establishment of a “kind of United States of Europe.” The gradual dominance of the EU over more and more of its individual member states’ autonomy—as the EU’s critics see it—may be evidence, Picknett and Prince suggest, of a slow fulfillment of the synarchy plan.

With this in mind it is curious to reflect that the warm-up to Trump’s “victory of the will” was the referendum in Great Britain in 2016 to leave the European Union, otherwise known as Brexit, which won by a close majority. The man most responsible for this was Nigel Farage, whose United Kingdom Independence Party is a member of Steve Bannon’s “global Tea Party Movement.” Like Bannon, Farage is a staunch nationalist and an advocate of “traditional”—if not Traditionalist—values. Trump himself has expressed mixed messages regarding the EU and, as we will see, Vladimir Putin does not have its best wishes at heart. For Alexander Dugin, the EU is an expression of the global neoliberal hegemony which, as an agent of chaos, he is determined to bring down.
