Every generation of people builds up its future – brings up their children and, in the processes of upbringing and education, passes over the knowledge and erudition which have been accumulated and stored in the course of mankind long history.
Upbringing transfers knowledge and understanding of living in the society, forms and shapes behavior and habits, dreams and aspirations, determines cultural and spiritual values.
Education presents and forms knowledge ensuring existing possibilities and abilities to work, to realize everything well-planned and all professional qualities.
Well brought-up and educated person is the creator, the constructor and the builder of the world, and, at the same time, not brought-up but educated person is the destructor, the plunderer equipped with knowledge and ready to reach the goals by any means.
Well brought-up and not educated person is a passive consumer not able to be aggressive, but not brought-up and not educated – is an aggressive consumer.
It follows from above, that lack of education is less dangerous than ill-breeding. The lack of proper bringing-up is equal to absence of immunity from social diseases around – the virus that infects, spoils and destroys citizens, thus contrpositioning them to the society. Criminality, drugs, ecology destruction – these are the result of insufficient upbringing. The Norway Tragedy confirms the above situation.
Direct Dependences Do Exist
Better education results in more highly qualified specialists, higher labor efficiency, higher minimal socially secured living standards, shorter working hours per week, more possibilities for physical development and going in for science and arts, more new ideas and new working places.
Better upbringing – more cleanness and order, more benevolence, mutual assistance, less violations of the laws of nature and of the society, less destructions and non-human feelings.
Better education and upbringing – better and happier life itself.
It is important to understand that, physical loads dominated human beings for thousands of years, and only some last decades have led to substantial, like time-explosive history, to changes in the way of life.
Here are some of the arguments:
- little of movement results in the worsening of the organism physical condition, there increases the danger of dystrophy and functionality disorders;
- large knowledge volumes prolong and complicate the process of education;
- much information filling up the consciousness, in fact, is not of the creative nature, and may be considered as information trash.
The consequences of the taken place changes are not less dangerous than if, for example, there have happened the change in the life environment – “from dry land to water” – it is still possible to live on, but it is somewhat uncomfortable and not habitual, and would the organism adapt? The way out is to set free time for physical development and active rest by increase in the studies and work effectiveness.
Everyone realizes the dangers of ineffective usage of the Planet non-renewable resources, on the one hand, and the waists rubbishing of it, on the other hand. If one begins thinking what the following may lead to: the deficit in the qualification lecturers, especially in the outlying regions, increasing quantity of chemical and biologically active, genetically modified food-staffs and products, substances and technologies, weapons armories, nuclear stations and other potentially dangerous establishments and units, then it becomes clear that qualitative general upbringing and education are the necessary defensive means to prevent mistakes, accidents, incidents, illnesses and diseases, called “the human factor”. Thus, if knowledge is transferred not to all people and not to the full extent and volume, then the society becomes differentiated, hinders and drags in its development, creates dangerous situations, and, having destroyed the environment, it may perish. The recent dramatic events of youth upheavals in Great Britain, and not only these facts, are vivid confirmation of all this.
There still remains hope for the extremely high creative abilities and capabilities of the broad masses of people. We suppose that even in such highly-developed country as Japan, there is a great growth potential, that understanding the level of danger in having modern materials and technologies, the citizens who have got socially oriented education, would suggest a solution how to protect their country from tsunamis. For example, to use modern strong polymeric materials to build a dyke, which will surface when the level of water increases, and protective constructions to deter and to direct water flows for their energy self-compensation. The aftereffects of this natural calamity would be considerably less tragic.
