So, there should also be education to 'Don't Panic!' eh? Sounds good...
Sounds useful...

Just to point out, WITH education prejudice and violence flourish ... if the teachers are paid by the KKK or Nazi party. Information and education do not intelligence or even temperance and understanding make.

Not only that, the criterions we've posed education fits well the Soviet
education system. It managed to utterly eliminate illiteracy and produce
the finest technicians, but it also filled each and every subject with
communist values and anti-capitalism, even Math (!). We're talking about
an oiled brainwashing system which suits our ideals just fine. Comments?
