Институты и ценности: консервативный подход

Every human society in its evolution creates set of institutions. These institutions arises as a result of so to say summarizing of most spread and regular collective habits and societal practices. Have becoming social regulations and norms, some of these institutions transforms themselves into values thus creating a moral infrastructure of any given society. It is possible to suggest that four of these institutions have universal meaning, and thus turn out to become highest values for any society. These are: Justice, Conscience, Family and Motherland. And namely these values have been substantially revised and virtually undermined by policies based in Western societies on assumption of priority of protection minorities’ rights. It’s a special mission of contemporary conservative movements to defend these traditional values as basic institutions of human society as such. And it’s a real chance for Russian conservatives to become a leading force in constituting conservative alternative (integral all-human ideology) to withstand Western self-distructive onslaught on fundamental human institutions/values.
