The Russian institute, which invented the [Sputnik V] vaccine, is a very serious scientific institution. We all know that pharmaceutical companies are driven by profits, but not the healthcare needs of the population. For example, they make the following calculations: how many people will go blind from this vaccine – 50 persons out of 100.000? These pharmaceutical companies are the ones who decide whether it is more profitable to pay compensation to the people who went blind because of their vaccine or to invest more efforts into making a better vaccine. This situation is terrifying for me. Thus, I choose the Russian vaccine very willingly, but not necessarily the American vaccine.
The classical liberalism of the US’s founding fathers has been replaced by a new progressivist pseudo-religion: a combination of radical corporate cultural Marxism and hedonistic consumerism. This pseudo-religion completely dominates academia and all aspects of public life in the West. In Western societies control over people’s minds and beliefs is far greater than anything Mao Zedong could have dreamed of.
The BBC is probably the most sophisticated and insidious propaganda machine the world has ever known. The BBC’s real goal is to impose the hegemony of Gramsci’s cultural Marxism on all aspects of life.
No evidence is provided to support the claims. The message in this video is consistent with a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that seeks to discredit liberal democracies by claiming that liberal societies are totalitarian systems ruled by “globalist elites” and “shadow governments”. This narrative portrays the liberal societies of the West as ideological dictatorships that have imposed a dominant “liberal globalist “or “progressivist” ideology and world-view and claims that “the elites” in Western societies exercise an almost total control over people’s minds and beliefs, censoring and suppressing any view that dissent from liberal-globalist-progressivist “single thought”.
Equating the West’s liberal democracies to a totalitarian system such as Mao Zedong’s communist regime, based on mass terror, repression of dissent and thought-control, is an obvious falsification of reality.
It is also obviously false to affirm that a “radical corporate cultural Marxist” ideology combined with hedonistic consumerism” dominates Western academia and public life.
Western liberal societies, in sharp contrast to totalitarian regimes, do not impose a dominant ideology or “single thought” on their citizens; they do not suppress nor censor alternative points of view. Liberal societies are based on pluralism, a political philosophy which recognises and affirms diversity within a political body, and which permits the peaceful coexistence of different interests, religious and secular worldviews, convictions, and lifestyles.
The article’s message is also consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives attacking and discrediting Western mainstream media, for examples see here and here. No evidence is provided to back up the claims.
The article’s attempt to equate the BBC to a totalitarian “propaganda machine” is an obvious falsification of reality. The claim that the BBC seeks to impose “cultural Marxism” on society is also clearly false.
There is no evidence supporting these claims. The BBC itself states that it is committed to achieving due impartiality in all its output and that:
“due impartiality usually involves more than a simple matter of ‘balance’ between opposing viewpoints. We must be inclusive, considering the broad perspective and ensuring that the existence of a range of views is appropriately reflected”.
Read similar cases claiming that contemporary liberalism is becoming totalitarian and views non-liberals as enemies to be killed and destroyed and that élites have set up a system of cyber-manipulation to monitor the population’s communication and prevent the awakening of mass political consciousness.
