SSC Gives a Graduation Speech

So with this spirit of questioning assumptions in mind, I want to ask you a question. Today many of you will be completing your education.

With the author’s permission, I’ve made a Russian translation of “SSC Gives a Graduation Speech” essay by Scott Alexander (Slate Star Codex blog).

If you can read the original article in English, I highly recommend it.
