You cant train kids in a world where adults have no concept of what science literacy is. The adults are gonna squash the creativity that would manifest itself, because theyre clueless about what it and why it matters. But science can always benefit from the more brains there are that are thinking about it - but thats true for any field.
The concept of historical necessity is the product of rational thought and arrived in Russia by the Western route. The idea of the noble savage, of an inherently good human nature hampered by bad institutions, of the ideal state, of social justice and so forth - none of these originated or blossomed on the banks of the Volga.

Prejudice of any kind implies that you are identified with the thinking mind. It means you dont see the other human being anymore, but only your own concept of that human being. To reduce the aliveness of another human being to a concept is already a form of violence.
