West eradicating the bases of human ethics, Imam Khomeini elucidated

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic once in a historic address explained that how the West was eradicating the bases of human ethics and trampling upon human dignity.

Imam on various occasions in this regard said as following:  

There is no basis for humanity there. It is the West which is eradicating the bases of human ethics.  It is the West which is trampling upon human dignity. But we imagine that the West possesses everything. Now that the West enjoys the automobile, so it ought to have everything. But in laws, our laws are richer than those of the whole world. (June 9, 1979)

Do not think that the westerners have progressed. They have advanced materially, but they have no spirituality. Islam and other divine schools of thought seek to perfect and construct true human beings, but the West has nothing to do with this matter. The West has discovered natural resources and natural power while using them against human beings. The West uses these powers to destroy cities, countries and even humanity. (June 11, 1979)

You ought to become illuminating, to purge and purify your 'selves'. Leave worldly desires out of your 'selves'. All mistakes and wrong­doings stem from attachment to the world. Come to true and eternal life through divine life. (February 26, 1981)

The secret of your victory has been first, your firm faith and then, unity of expression.

Preserve these two issues. Consolidate your faith because you are not a materialistic creature. Those who consider the human being as a materialistic creature, evaluate a person as other animals. You are a creature who has a materialistic dimension, but more important than that is your spiritual side; you possess a divine self. You have an abstract self. If you are at the service of God, the Most Exalted, the Most High, then your 'self' will become purged and purified and you will achieve happiness. You will embrace this happiness under any circumstances; with your purged 'self' you are victorious in your defeats, even in dying. (June 12, 1979)

Imam further explained: 

Islam only values virtue and piety. Whoever is more pious and virtuous, has more value before God. (June 12, 1979)

If mankind is self-constructed and perfected, everything will come out as spiritual. Even the materialistic will become spiritual. (June 6, 1979)
