Serebryakov says that the Russians, for the most part, devoid of independence and all come at the behest of television: “I Agree that all the latest design, which is still ongoing, there are 20 years – it’s an endless deterioration of the human material in the country. It’s TV, first of all: push the button – get the result, say the letter “A” and get a million. This initiative is infinite: it is not necessary to train. You’re a star, get on the ice and all will admire you. No need to work hard, don’t work, don’t study, don’t do anything. And it is propaganda. We have TV’s only three normal smart transfer: “What? Where? When?” “Jeopardy” and “University challenge”. That’s all.”
According to Serebryakov, “quality of human material is extremely low,” because this policy of the state.
“This is politics. Actually, it is that you need to turn people into slaves because they want to. So we have a lot of the army, we have a country with the largest number of law enforcement agencies on a per capita basis. Because people who are not responsible for themselves, they conform to order. It is easier to live. You ordered – you did. All. You don’t take responsibility for their lives, and this is the main problem,” said Serebryakov.
