Those Western "values"

My latest New Matilda column is about Western "values", the media's war on terrorism and shameless propaganda:

"For liberal democracies, questioning and confronting this orthodoxy presents one of the greatest challenges since Cold War propaganda convinced millions that the (crumbling and inefficient) Soviets were actually determined to destroy our benign, capitalist, Western world. 'Values' are becoming the key battleground of the War on Terror."

Ah-well, any publicity is good publicity, right?

Just because they were crumbling and inefficient doesn't mean they weren't evil and ambitious as well.
