Day 14 #moreфон2020 #moreфон_italki There are so many essential things on the planet Earth. I’ve talked about some of them, and I’ll carry on sharing my thoughts with you. Today I want to point out modern opportunities for education. That’s so amazing! Several centuries ago, only very few people could go to university and explore the world. Moreover, the general level of awareness was awful; people suffered from their biases because they didn’t know how the world worked. That explains it. Of course, I can’t say that now we know everything about nature or even about ourselves. Anyway, it’s better than before, I assume. For example, if you lived in the Ancient East, you wouldn’t have a lot of options: your choice depends on your social status. Also, you would consider something that you could use for earning money. On the other hand, if you were born in Ancient Greece, you could be interested in something theoretical and launched your philosophical school. Quite well. Just imagine: you could become a “rock star” in philosophy and gave performances in your and other Greek polis. But now you have more opportunities. Thanks to the Internet you can join some Massive Online Open Course and choose everything that you want. P.S. Have you taken some brilliant courses?
