Jihadists have been used by the US and European states as proxies to fight the West’s war in Syria and Iraq.
The secularised and materialistic societies of the US and the West are decadent. They worship money, are devoted to the obsessive search of pleasure and are based on the cult of total freedom at any cost.
The article repeats the pro-Kremlin disinformation theme about the West’s moral decadence, materialism, perverted values and hostility to traditional religion, which Western governments allegedly seek to undermine and to replace with pseudo-religions (such as LGBT ideology).
Liberal-democratic Western societies are not dominated by the decadent and anti-religious 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 money” nor on the “cult of total freedom”. They are based on the values of liberal democracy, including civil rights and human rights, and equality before the law. Liberal democracies, however, recognise that individual freedom can never be absolute, since one person’s freedom may conflict with another's.
Read similar cases claiming that Western Europe is moving away from its Christian roots and is dominated by materialism and the pursuit of money and that the West seeks to degrade and discredit traditional values.
