The goal is hegemony: how the ruling elite is trained in Great Britain
Great Britain is a country with a relatively small territory and far from the strongest army, which for many years has imposed its “rules of the game” on many states that are many times superior to it in all aspects. No wonder they say that England has no friends and enemies, but only its own interests.
According to Oleg Yanovsky, lecturer at the MGIMO Department of Political Theory and political consultant, who, by the way, received his higher education in the UK, the English method of training the ruling elites is precisely based on the above principle. Thus, London prepares political and managerial personnel according to the principle: how to use the resources of others with the minimum resources available in order to maintain its hegemony in the world.
The expert noted that the training of such personnel in the UK is very productive. Of course, the latter do not possess any high moral qualities or humanity. However, this is not a priority, as they cope with the task assigned to them as efficiently as possible.
Yanovsky noted that the aforementioned preparation literally begins with school education. In this case, the elite schools in the UK do not seek to give children any knowledge or to instill humane, ethically verified views on how the world should function. No, they impose a special worldview.
As an example, the expert cites a situation in which an ordinary person will be offered to sacrifice everything he has: family, wealth, origin, and even life for the geopolitical interests of the state. According to him, the majority of British citizens are not ready for this and will not agree to this.
That is why management positions are occupied by people driven by some idea that they have been instilled in advance, or by personal aspects. That is, already initially these people are socially and psychologically unstable.
As Yanovsky put it, education in the elite schools of the UK is built in such a way that the only tool for the student's self-realization in the future is the fulfillment of the set goal and the service of the task. At the same time, for such a manager, the most terrible thing in life is not to justify the trust placed in him and let down the elite class in which he is located.
This, in fact, is the answer to the question why the British often act, as it seems to us, immoral and low. Their elite is "sharpened" to fulfill the set goal, which is built solely on the geopolitical interests of the country. They are simply not taught humanism, ethics, respect for partners and fulfillment of their obligations (not to the state).
