RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Angry Youths Attack House Of Greek President Papoulias; Hurl Rocks, Molotov Cocktails

It begins in Greece.. And there is an 2 important lines I will bold and one is from a movie that should be familiar. This will be America and Europe eventually. Makes more sense that its youth starting it.




Quote:Instead of defaulting a long time ago (when we first suggested it should) when it could have pulled an Iceland, taken a bitter pill, hyperinflated the drachma and in the process delevered overnight, if at a big social cost of losing its welfare safety net (which it is about to lose anyway courtesy of the PSI and OSI), and not be held captive to bigger geopolitical interests, and hostage to the banker superclass, Greece very likely could have been on the road to recovery now, granted with a totally different political regime. Instead, the political regime is the same, Greece is more in debt than ever before, the economy is in shambles, the banks have seen two straight years of bank runs, and most importantly the people now are poorer and more disenchanted than ever, and as the following story indicates, about to get far angrier than any Syntagma square riot cam (which is about to come back with a PayPerView vengeance) has shown to date. According to Kathimerini, late on Saturday evening, "A group of between 30 and 50 youngsters attacked the house of President Karolos Papoulias."

"The result of the attack was some minor damage to the entrance of the house at Asklipiou Street in central Athens and to the car that Papoulias uses. The hooded youngsters, who arrived by motorbike and on foot just after 8 p.m, hurled a Molotov cocktail, rocks and paint at the house but stopped short of attacking the two guards at the President’s house. Papoulias was inside at the time of the attack. Police is searching for those responsible for the unexpected attack." And while the fact that discontented Greeks are willing to attack the most porminent political figure is in itself not shocking, the fact that it is being publicly announced is quite disturbing, as it opens up the population to the realization that one can express anger and hostility at one's rulers - an oppressive regime that has been benefitting the banking oligarchical superclass at the expense of the general population. Consider it yet another "Sparatcus" moment. How many more of these before the Athens parliament is overrun? Or how much longer before the people realize they have nothing to lose?

Because it's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything...

Sorry folks, real revolution is still a long way away. Most everyone still has their middle class house and white pickett fence. I don't think shits gonna get real until another great depression hits. As long as everyone is fat and happy, they are complient.

Thats just Greece. It could be a while before that reaches America or some bigger economic player.

From what efs said, Greece was always a little unstable anyways.

RE: Angry Youths Attack House Of Greek President Papoulias; Hurl Rocks, Molotov Cocktails

I remember when I went to Greece. I loved the people, I love the rules that no one followed, I loved how the graffiti was full of political messages rather than just gang tags, I loved the daily life. My friend is moving to Greece in 2 years too, he says he loves the life there much better. Even if the economy is bullshit at the moment thanks to a corrupt government. The ancient Greeks were awesome. The modern Greeks are fucking retarded, and the youth are slowly realizing this.
I'm going to Greece in 2 years too, can't wait. It's full of radicals as well, you'll find one person is an ultra-left anarchist, and the next will be an ultra-right fascist. Not that I like to distinguish between left and right much since ideally the ultra left and ultra right could be considered the same if you take into account nationalist socialism and the horseshoe theory.
But I'm blabbing on now. lol
