25 Nothing / Few things /No idea / opinion belief / view / attitude is /are more / as foolish /dangerous /untrue /undesirable / basic /important /essential than / as ... (which is widely /commonly /generally held by...).
25.1 Nothing, we have been told these years, is more educative than participating in or listening to an exchange of opinion. The seminar, the conference, the lecture, the panel discussion on the radio ------ how fine, how liberating, how instructive they are to us all, to the participants and to those at their receiving sets. They can not only acquaint one with many facts, but help deepen one's understanding of social phenomena and relationships, and broaden one's outlook.
25.2 Few things seem to stir up more fear among today's young people than the prospect of a military draft. Feelings of patriotism are articulated much more freely now, but there seems little enthusiasm for military conscription, and no one wants to spend several years in the armed forces engaged in activities which have nothing to do with their future work.
25.3 Perhaps no issue in this world is as basic to individual and national survival as food. But China in recent years has experienced a serious waste of food in one way or another. Especially in many big cities, this waste has become habitual and traditional, to the extent that people are seldom aware of it in their daily life.
26 Never /Nowhere in history /the world /China has the issue /change /idea of .... been more /as visible /evident /popular than ... /as ...
26.1 Nowhere in the world has the issue of birth control been more evident than in China. The nation is faced with such serious situation as the one in which its population is increasing much faster than the supply of food and available resources.
26.2 Nowhere has the great principle of equality been so thoroughly put in practice as in China, and nowhere have such persistent efforts been made to improve the legal status of women. In spite of this, however, women in many places are still denied the right to compete with men for jobs on equal terms and the right to equal opportunities for promotion.
26.3 Never in the nation's history have the stakes involving our education been higher than rim. From energy crises to air pollution, and from the improvement of the standard of living to space exploration, the approaching world of the 21st century bristles with challenges whose resolution, for better or worse, will depend largely on the quality of education.
27 It is about/ high time we exploded /shattered /freed ourselves from the myth /illusion /fiction about ...
27.1 It's about time somebody exploded that old myth about childhood being the happiest of your life. Childhood may certainly be fairly happy, free from financial worries and the anxiety about social ladders. But have you heard our children today groaning under the ever-increasing burden of studies? Have you seen them stay up almost every night simply to finish a day's homework?
28 Perhaps /Maybe we should /it is time to rethink /reexamine /have a fresh look at the idea /values /attitude /wisdom / desirability that ...
28.1 Perhaps we should rethink an idea fast becoming an undisputed premise of our life that a college degree is necessary ------ and perhaps even a sufficient ------ precondition for success. I do not wish to quarrel with the assumptions made about the benefits of orthodox education. I want only to expose its false god; the four-year, all-purpose, degree-granting college, aimed at the so-called college-age population and by now almost universally accepted as the stepping-stone to "meaningful" and "better" jobs.
28.2 Maybe it is time to reexamine our present valuess of life and try to figure out why life today becomes so difficult, and what can be done about it. Not only are things often not what they seem, they may be just the opposite of what they seen. People are discontented these days, for example, not because things are worse than ever, but because things are better than ever. Everything is paradoxical.
