About us

I. Conscience school establishment motives

  1. Children and teenagers knowledge level and behavior deterioration.
  2. The educational system failor to develop spirituality and intellect of learners in a balanced way.
  3. Society’s degradation and abandonment of God, as well as a low moral standard, have led to the following consequences:
  • Mostly employees do not consider employers’ tax fraud or envelope wage practice and corruption as an offence against the law.
  • A significant part of the society is indifferent to tax or other financial scams.
  • A significant part of society is indifferent to misconduct and low moral standards of civil servants and politicians.
  • The increase in the number of sick leaves indicates not only on the unhealthy society, but also on the use them, just not to work and live at the expense of the state – that is to say, state scrounging.
  • The willingness of unemployed to use “national paid leave” is not considered as a crime.
  • Different money scams schemes to enhance personal well-being are perceived as smart people actions, but not as something criminal.
  • Lies, servility, duplicity and guile are accepted at all levels.
  • Marriage violations, same-sex, bisexual and group sexual relationships are no longer anything wrong or special.

A large number of society’s degradation signs could be listed, which, in general, suggest only a low level of public morale, which is the result of a long-term focus on the development of intellect, leaving spirituality neglected and God abandoning.

Therefore, the Association “To live by Conscience” in cooperation with the establishment “Socrates Folk School” would like to create a model for the educational institution with new content that will ensure a balanced development of spirituality and intellect,as well as, a new generation upbringing in accordance with the Divine moral laws, which will be the basis for the development of a progressive community.
