Our moral society in decline due to left wing ideology and influence.
In recent years, there has been a growing concern among conservative thinkers that society has degenerated under the influence of left-wing ideology. Right-wing thinkers argue that the rise of progressive values and the emphasis on individualism have undermined traditional values and institutions, leading to a breakdown in social order and a decline in social cohesion.
One of the key arguments made by right-wing thinkers is that left-wing ideology has promoted a culture of victimhood, which has led to a weakening of personal responsibility and accountability. The emphasis on victimhood has created a climate in which individuals are encouraged to view themselves as victims and to seek redress through political action rather than personal responsibility. This, in turn, has led to a culture of entitlement, in which individuals demand recognition and support for their perceived victimhood, rather than taking responsibility for their own lives.
Right-wing thinkers argue that this culture of victimhood has undermined traditional values such as hard work, self-reliance, and personal responsibility. They argue that the promotion of victimhood has encouraged a sense of entitlement, which has eroded the work ethic and undermined the traditional virtues of self-reliance and self-discipline. This, in turn, has led to a decline in personal responsibility, as individuals increasingly look to the state to solve their problems, rather than taking responsibility for their own lives.
Another key argument made by right-wing thinkers is that left-wing ideology has promoted a culture of relativism, which has eroded traditional values and institutions. Relativism is the belief that truth is relative to the individual or culture, rather than objective and absolute. Right-wing thinkers argue that this relativistic worldview has led to a decline in morals, predominately Christian values, as individuals increasingly make decisions based on personal preference, rather than objective moral principles.
Right-wing thinkers argue that the decline in moral values has contributed to a breakdown in social order, as individuals no longer feel bound by a shared set of values and norms. This has led to an erosion of social cohesion and a rise in social fragmentation, as individuals become increasingly isolated from one another and from the institutions that traditionally held society together.
A related argument made by right-wing thinkers is that left-wing ideology has promoted a culture of individualism, which has undermined social cohesion and the sense of community. Individualism is the belief that the individual is more important than the community, and that individual rights and freedoms should be prioritized over social responsibility and obligation.
Right-wing thinkers argue that this emphasis on individualism has led to a decline in social cohesion, as individuals become more focused on their own needs and desires, being a “look at me” society driven to some extent by social media, rather than the needs of the community. This has contributed to a breakdown in social order and a decline in social trust, as individuals become more suspicious of one another and less willing to work together for the common good.
Finally, right-wing thinkers argue that left-wing ideology has undermined traditional institutions, such as the family, the Christian church, and the nation-state. They argue that the promotion of progressive values has eroded these institutions by challenging traditional gender roles, sexual norms, and national identities.
Right-wing thinkers argue that the erosion of these institutions has contributed to a breakdown in social order and a decline in social cohesion. They argue that these institutions provide the basis for social order and the sense of community, and that their erosion has led to a rise in social fragmentation and the breakdown of social norms and values.
In conclusion, right-wing thinkers believe that society has degenerated under left-wing ideology, which has promoted a culture of victimhood, relativism, individualism, and the erosion of traditional institutions. We argue that these trends have contributed to a breakdown in social order and a major and slippery slope decline.
