Disinfo: Afghanistan's case proves the flaws of Western liberalism


The failure of the United States and the West in Afghanistan proves that the effort to impose the model of Western liberalism on countries like Ukraine is bound to fail. This model does not fit all countries and it can destroy people like totalitarian regimes.


This report is a clear attempt to extrapolate the recent developments in Afghanistan to Ukraine in order to question the efforts by its government to promote a modern liberal democracy.

It is consistent with the recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that seeks to discredit liberalism claiming that the West’s liberal societies are totalitarian regimes ruled by “globalist elites” and “shadow governments” and that the liberal West and “globalist élites” are responsible for violent upheavals, military interventions, wars, anarchy and chaos throughout the world.

The article also repeats the pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the moral decadence of the West, materialism, perverted values and hostility to traditional values and religion.
