The article seeks to discredit liberal democracy by repeating pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the West’s moral decadence, materialism, hedonism, perverted values, and hostility to traditional religion, which Western governments allegedly seek to undermine and to replace with pseudo-religions (such as LGBT ideology).
The article’s message is also consistent with recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about all-powerful global élites or secret élites ruling the world and controlling leaders.
Liberal-democratic Western societies are not dominated by the hedonistic and nihilist value-systems described in the article. These societies have institutionalised pluralism, which means the peaceful coexistence of different religions, world-views and value-systems within the same society.
Western societies are not based on the worship of hedonism and on nihilism. They are based on the values of liberal democracy, including civil rights, human rights, and equality before the law.
Read similar cases claiming that the secularised and materialistic societies of the US and the West worship money and are devoted to the obsessive search of pleasure, that Western Europe is moving away from its Christian roots and is dominated by materialism and the pursuit of money, and that Western values are egoism, hedonism and extreme relativism.
