Education and medicine in a "winning market"

The Russian authorities are not tired of reminding us that we live in an era of capitalism, the main features of which are private property, exploitation of hired labor, legal equality, freedom of entrepreneurship, market relations, competition, and most importantly, maximum profit and increase in your capital.


Education and medicine in a "winning market"


Meanwhile, it was the capitalist approach associated with the upbringing of the “qualified consumer” that led to the beginning of negative transformations in the education system, which is considered the most important social institution of society. As a result of these degradation processes - the transcendental bureaucratization of modern education, the destruction of a single educational space, the oblivion of the teaching methods of subjects, the introduction of the Bologna system, lobbying for the so-called competency-based approach and much, much more.

Capitalism also “walked well” through the healthcare system, ruining free Soviet medicine and making quality medicine paid, that is, inaccessible to the average person. If you want to be cured - pay, if you don’t want to - go to the district clinic and go through the bureaucracy in full.

Are we able to change something in such conditions, in the conditions of the "winning market"? This is argued by a student of a medical university George in the next issue of Konstantin Semin's project “Letters. Last call"

    Dear Konstantin Semin! Education in medicine has led us to the absence of specialists of different profiles in this medicine. These are our Russian children we are forced to treat abroad.
    Education and medicine in a "winning market"

    Talking long and useless. In our “victorious market economy”, everything is moving towards the appearance of paid education and paid medical services, which does not guarantee the quality of the latter.
    Apparently those storytellers who don’t want to raise taxes on their “extra” profits, see a different form of filling the budget - for example, a 5% increase in the tax on small businesses (so they make ends meet maneuvering between prices and quality), or a simple increase in VAT .. . Where is the experience of developed capitalist countries? Russia should have its own tax system, incomprehensible to anyone.
    As a result, we have what we have.

      Medicine and education have moved into the service sector! And when was the service sector at our top? Even for money, even for big money!
      Service is a foreign word and does not apply in Russia. hi

      There will be a “pleasant surprise” for medium and small businesses. The Ministry of Finance became interested in the difference between the income and expenditure of Russians and realized that most of the money the employer paid in black ... they want to make the entire RFP official .. but I’m sure that with the increase in taxes, this measure will finally kill small and medium-sized businesses .. And this will mean that unemployment will increase significantly .. That's how hard workers are carefully sheared .. but don’t touch your loved ones, where is the progressive tax? so who will introduce him against himself ..

      For each employee, the employer pays OSS contributions every month - compulsory social insurance in case of temporary disability and maternity (2,9%) and
      MHI - compulsory health insurance (5,1%). So we do not have free medicine, but there is insurance.

    "qualified consumer" ... I’m thinking, maybe it’s better to bet and educate a qualified creator?

      A qualified creator will invariably have questions regarding the qualifications of rulers.

    Are we able to change something in such conditions, in the conditions of the "winning market"?

    As they say: "respect your parents - they graduated from school .... without Yandex, Rambler and Google."
    CONCLUSIONS:
    —- The state and vectors of the development of health care, education ... reflect the shameless division (not stratification ..) of Russian society along the contours of the sovereignty of money in modern Russia.
    —Russian, Russians ARE ABLE to rely only on themselves in matters of access and use of health care and education - from birth onwards ... The state does not guarantee access results.
    —- IN THE CONDITION TO OBSERVE the loss of the remaining achievements of socialism ... and the continuous growth of value in the paid sectors. Reducing the availability and quality of social health and education.
    —- Glaring, mass ... spelling, arithmetic illiteracy. The clogging of the Russian language ... by borrowing from English, beyond recognition through the generation. Substitution of knowledge with skills.
    —- Militant nihilism, denial of the role of knowledge, elderly “undergrowths” / infantilism, accelerating ebbs and flows of public opinion with epicenters of social networks such as Odnoklassniki, Facebook ...
    —- Primitivization of communication and concepts in connection with the framework and experience in social networks ... like Twitter
    —- On the whole, in the Russian public consciousness, improvements are imperceptible compared to deteriorations. Perhaps in a generation this will change, with the oblivion of the period, and the achievements, socialism in the USSR.
    -Due to the short historical time gap between the socialism of the USSR and capitalism, the omnipotence of money in Russia ..., an objective assessment of the current state, and the vectors of development of health care and education, is currently difficult and quite likely impossible (in the ongoing the revolutionary or counter-revolutionary period of the change of the social system).
    ANALYSIS:

    —- Russia, fortunately, is still not quite in a “market”. The essential elements of free (social) education and health care also remained.
    -Russia is losing and has lost the main achievements of socialism in education and healthcare: the desire for knowledge, access to education, its quality ... accessibility and mass health care, methods and a wide profile of medical personnel (instead of specialization), prevention ... outpatient clinics, medicine in production, sanatoriums / rest houses .. feldsher medicine ...
    —- We note that the quality of some components (free, social) is better than in the USSR (but they are not widely available in Russia). For example - medical equipment, treatment of oncological and cardiovascular diseases, children's medicine ... modern equipment of schools, higher schools, preschool institutions ... narrow specialization (but as noted - to the detriment of the availability of general practitioners), telemedicine .. The virtues of the Internet.
    —- However, the availability of these segments across Russia is uneven. And in general, the quality of these social segments is WORSE THAN IN THE USSR, having lost the ideology, methodology, expertise, and staff - from nurses, doctors, teachers ... to professors ... organizers and innovators of PUBLIC MEDICINE, EDUCATION AND SCIENCE.
    —- Based on the experience of the West of the “winning market” (large Western economies ... with the temporary exception of Germany, France, Canada ...), the user, the consumer is able to OBSERVE the transition to insufficient free health care and education, and to OBSERVE the constantly rising prices in the paid segment of education and health care, the substitution of live communication and study .. cursive writing and reference books on the Internet.
    —- Able to OBSERVE THE CONTINUING LOSS OF THE SOVIET AREA IN EDUCATION IN SCIENCE, HEALTH
    —- Based on the experience of America - Russians are able to OBSERVE the accelerating leapfrog and imitation of the West in the methodology of acquiring skills (NOT DEEP KNOWLEDGE) in education and medicine. And the reduction of medical staff ...
    -AND OF COURSE, IN THE STATE OF OBSERVATION, the victory of AI - artificial intelligence, and the "natural average" over common sense, the civilizational experience of Russia, the wisdom of elders and elders, life experience ...

        In 2014, the Order of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia dated May 30.05.2014, 326 No. 17.03.2017 was adopted (as amended on March XNUMX, XNUMX). He regulated the transition to a standardization system in the training of doctors. In fact, brought confusion for many years. The same MED is now broadcasting to us that:
        According to estimates by the Ministry of Economic Development, the increase in population in 2020-2023. will be observed only due to migration growth, and the natural population growth will decrease.

        Everything goes according to plan

    Doctors know that our good mood contributes to good health. But it seems that someone has a problem to spoil it. Often we are issued with such statements about macaroni and freebies that our hands drop. After reading a warning about the detection of early stages of cancer, many scratching themselves (all the same itching), moles and neoplasms rushed to count on their bodies. Another warning about the loss of imported water in stores. But we were quickly reassured. Like not now. Later. But before, many believed that in our country the waters sank, or rather pour.

    You know, I don’t understand much, because there is little information and it is deliberately distorted, but every day it’s getting worse and worse. On my public service, free services for the population are transferred to a commercial basis, but in our system it’s archaic, people don’t want to do vaccinations, treatments, animals are imported without inspection and quarantine. Every spring we wait with great fear, every spring a new epizootic uncharacteristic of our climate zone and forgotten from the time of the USSR, we work as a fire brigade, but this is fundamentally wrong, God forbid, we can do not have time. Cherry on the cake, we are a budgetary organization, and we are forced to EARN and all the money we earn is taken by Moskovia

    As they used to say: "There are two" stupid "in the market - one is selling, the other is buying." If those who are pushing us all this "heresy" are for the benefit - then answer for yourself who then is the loser.
