There is something rotten in the heart of the West. If the term “West” used to be a synonym for the European world in a broader sense, for Europe and for other parts of the Earth where Europeans settled and founded their countries, today this is no longer necessarily the case.
With the flood of migrants and the introduction of gender theories into schools, Central and Eastern Europe is rightly concerned about the introduction of the so-called western values into their societies. On the other hand, perhaps, as Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán recently stated, Central and Eastern Europe now represent the true West and Western values, before the rot that began to spread after the Second World War from the once respectable educational institutions, which were quietly taken over by Jewish intellectuals of the Frankfurt School, or cultural Marxists. The consequences of cultural Marxism can of course also be felt in Central and Eastern European countries. Soros began to spread his tentacles in these places immediately after the fall of the Iron Curtain, in some places even earlier. (The Open Society Foundation paved the way for its institutions in the former republics of Yugoslavia before it collapsed.)
However, despite this, in Central and Eastern Europe, family values and tradition play a much greater role and do not sink into oblivion. A good example is Serbia, where tens of thousands of people went to the streets to show their opposition to the planned gay and transgender parade. Poland and Hungary are also two countries that reject the most out-of-the-box ideas of cultural Marxism. Where people survived the single-mindedness of communism, today they are more immune to the new single-mindedness, this time coming from the West. This is actually not about Western values, but about a “progressive” ideology that likes to present itself as the pinnacle of Western civilisation. In reality, it means its decline and complete destruction. Underneath this false “progress” lie materialism, which sees man exclusively as an individual whose main goals are the satisfaction of his basic needs, and nihilism, which rejects any higher meaning and values. It was from this nihilism and materialism that the “progressive” ideology was born, which is being resisted not only in the East, but increasingly also in the West.
