Pyongyang, November 18 (KCNA) — Gallop opinion poll in the U.S. talked ill of the corrupt social system in the country, saying that 73 percent of the respondents held that view on moral value is getting increasingly degenerated.
Referring to this, Rodong Sinmun Friday says that this helps measure the Western civilization and morality bragged by the paid bourgeois trumpeters and shows what extent the moral corruption in capitalist society has reached.
The view on moral value in capitalist society including the U.S. is an outlook with individual at the center, not the popular masses, the article notes, and goes on:
It is a common occurrence in capitalist countries with extreme individualism as moral and mental base that a husband kills his wife, children kill their parents and grandchildren kill their grandparents.
Genuine morality and ethics can not be found in capitalist society where class contradictions and conflict have reached their height.
In capitalist society bourgeois hold privileged status and exercise unchallenged rights while toiling masses fall victim to class oppression and exploitation without any right.
It is the principle of existence peculiar to capitalist world that haves exploit no-haves and the weak are swallowed up by those with the strong.
A decadent material life, poor mental and cultured life and reactionary political life are basic features of modern capitalist society and important factor of promoting its moral corruption.
With the creation of more wealth in capitalist society, people’s mental and cultural life becomes poorer, making people totally corrupt mentally and physically.
Today the moral corruption in capitalist society has gone beyond control.
