Quote: "" Education is the same for all "- in practice, means that the material will have to be adapted to the level of the most retarded student in the classroom"
In a normal healthy Soviet education, the principle of amplification acted - he implies that the content of education is always offered a level higher and more complicated than it corresponds to age (if to say exaggeratedly) - and children should be pulled UP UP. It's like a baby rattle hang not at the level of the hands, but a little higher, and it stimulates the development.
The “moronic” students of humanistic Soviet education also pulled up, which is great both for them and for society.
The 2nd World War was not a war of nations, but a war of ideologies: extreme individualism (capitalism, fascism, what is being developed in modern Russia) and the ideology of camaraderie, collectivism, mutual aid, fraternity (socialism, USSR).
What is stronger is obvious. But now Russia is taking a different path.
The author is a layman who does not see beyond the nose.
At the same time, with the advent of the market, in Russia, as in all countries of the former socialist camp, the so-called "diseases of abundance" appeared (cardiovascular - heart attacks, strokes, diabetes ...) their sharp increase is associated with the consumption of a large amount of bad food.
Those who could make a real formidable opposition are looking for a piece of bread (all the real educated intelligentsia - teachers, teachers, doctors, scientists - work at 1.5 or two rates, tutoring and part-time work).
All vital enterprises (water utilities, electricity, gas pipelines ...) are in private hands (blackmail technology - "if you protest - turn off the gas").
All emotions are skillfully sent to the trash the Internet - "letting off steam."
