Sanctity of motherhood programme forumOn 19-20 November 2013 the third forum of the All-Russian program "Sanctity Motherhood" took place in Moscow. More than 400 people took part in it from 58 regions of our country. The forum subject is "Family values in contemporary infomedeia" which is getting more and more important today. Just imagine if we take away phone, Internet, TV, car from a contemporary person, i.e. return to the XIX century. I think, life of the most of them is is not imaginable without these "information benefits". Many people call Internet and TV angry. But they are really like a scrap or a simple axe which can be used both for murder and for building church. So, information resources are just tools, and they can be neither good nor bad themselves. The question is that whose hands will use them and for what. Children and young generation who spend more and more free time at PC and TV become the audience which is particularly prone to mass-media influence.

Forum Dialogue of covolozationsDeclaration of the 11th Rhodes Forum

Rhodes, Greece, October 5, 2013

The contemporary world is dominated by various forces that threaten humanist principles and a plurality of ways of life. A pervasive hegemony is imposing unilateral standards masquerading as global values irrespective of cultural diversity. Persistent injustice exacerbates both poverty and inequality within and between peoples and nations. Mankind faces the spectre of regional escalation that could lead to global confrontation. The continual domination of financial capital poses a growing menace to democratic life. Populists and extremists are on the rise. An impoverished materialism is undermining cultures, societies and spiritual traditions around the globe. All these threats derive from a lack of genuine dialogue that prevents all the civilizations of the world from contributing to the common good.
