Today, politics-the social sphere is considered as a mechanism. The understanding of the political and social sphere as an organism and its difference from the understanding as a mechanism (the mechanism is controlled from the outside, and the organism from the inside) is lost. In addition, it is necessary to return the economic problem to its legitimate boundaries, to restore the order in which the field of economics is subordinated to the sphere of higher values, so that human life can regain its true meaning and realize its spiritual needs. The highest human values are: Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. An indispensable attribute of the mechanism is the bureaucracy that serves it, based on the principle of mechanical replacement of personnel. It is assumed that this bureaucratic apparatus is designed to ensure the smooth operation of the faceless machine of power (mechanism).
KEYWORDS: higher human values, socio-economic development, spiritual needs, mechanism, organism, hierarchy, truth, goodness, beauty, economy, ethics.
