Under the favorable institutional and sociocultural conditions, an individual who holds presidential office strives for authoritarian rule, trying to achieve permanent and almost unlimited powers. M.Krasnov proposes to view this process as “monarchization” of president and turns to the analysis of the ideological legitimation of the regime of personal power. In his opinion, such legitimization is based on the representation of the ruler as “the father of the nation”. Although authoritarian rulers are often called, both officially and unofficially, leaders and alike, ultimately “the father of the nation” seems to be a more appropriate term. Contrary to the traditional explanations of the origins of this phenomenon based on either patriarchal family or biological and psychological features of a human, Krasnov states that the need for paternalism is embedded in the very social nature of a man and the roots of this need lie in the act of Divine creation.

The article is the author's reflections on the links of Christian principles and the principles of public life. M. Krasnov considers Christianity to be the foundation of Euroatlantic civilization. He points to it direct opposite of the totalitarian ideology.
Stating the factual establishing of post- Christian civilization the author believes that the spread of secularism is a dangerous trend in development. In his opinion to separate the Christian morals from the state is detrimental. Thus, the principle of equality in its fundamental sense was violated when the materialistic weltanschauung shifted Christian weltanschauung into purely religious sphere.
