Resume: The article contains analysis and critical evaluation of the worldview situation, which is supported by the government structures of the state. Among the dismaying worldview quillets, the author views the lowering of the role of philosophy as responsible free thinking in favor of dogmatism of religion; declarative objectivism of science and utilitarian — commercial type of thinking; introduction of elements of secular eschatology; the government favoring the efficiency principle in the issues of organization of social life. With the reference to the authentically philosophical worldview, as provided for by the expression of Heraclithus, the author formulates and provides basis for a number of specific challenges towards religious and churchly Christian views and practices, alliance of the church and government. The author supports the need and desirable character of metaphysically correct discussions between philosophers and theologians. It is pointed out that it is not acceptable and harmful to have a vulgar pragmatic approach to education and science. The text contains a number of references to the ideas of Niccolo Machiavelli with his non-servile and realistic view of human being and world.
Keywords: human being, worldview, philosophy, religion, science, ideology, ideocracy, Russia, eschatology, efficiency.
