Thank you for inspiring comment. Yes, anonymous downvoting make me feel as I have secret enemy in the woods(( The idea of creating "world saviour" from bright students is more realistic, and effective altruists and LW did a lot in this way. Rationality also should be elaborated and suggestion about dates classification is inspiring.

The idea of creating "world saviour"

I'm very very suspicious of the idea of creating "world saviours". In the Abrahamic tradition world saviours are expect to sweep the Earth clean of bad men with fire and sword. Yes, nice things are promised after that :-/
