It's unclear to me what an economic model (socialism) has to do with being a pervert.

For me the larger issue is that mankind thinks himself more clever than reality demonstrates. Many of us have convinced ourselves that we're much too sophisticated, urbane, and nuanced to focus on core values such as honesty and self-control.

Our society holds that sex is of no consequence, that lying is urbane and sophisticated, and that virtue is old fashioned and important only to the most ignorant among us. That problem is systemic and has nothing to do with a particular economic model.

To express amazement at the end result is utter foolishness.
Our world is a mess that we've made.
Enjoy.
