There is every opportunity for education, it's affordable for most people. Mindless grind is the choice of people who don't want or don't need to move up in life.
Our government right now is the best option for Russia. It's stable and, let's face it, Putin is the best president for Russia, at least I can't think of any better replacement.
He's experienced, he knows how to run this country and i'm sure he's doing as good a job as any other president would.
