Spiritual Staples is a metaphorical concept from Russian propaganda, symbolizing traditional values that are meant to unite the nation against what is portrayed as the corrupt and immoral Western world.

The state asserts control over people's bodies by sending them to war, rendering disabled individuals invisible, criminalizing LGBTQ+ individuals, restricting abortion rights, and imprisoning anyone who disagrees with the state ideology. This is justified as a means of safeguarding the people, particularly minors, and ensuring prosperity of the nation.

Bodies are bound together through the use of unrestrained state violence and fear.
