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.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

You could go to Canada, UK, Australia, France, etc.

America is not the only free country in on earth.

All of which have similar rights issues. The point is if America becomes totally devoid of rights and the ideology of democracy and freedom is abandoned, we'll loose the culture surrounding freedom and shit.

Yeah, and it's a HECK of a LOT easier to move to another state than it is to move to another country. You got immigration, the new law, language, etc. Etc. >.<
And then you have new people to deal with, who will probably treat you like shit because youre American! (especially if you go to a country where English is not the first language.)

Canada- Next to and ally with U.S. Although not that bad of an idea.

UK- Are you kidding me? Tiny country, shit loads of surveillance, very strong class hierarchy. Definitely not better than the U.S. in terms of freedom.

Australia- Don't know enough to say, but you could have something there. Although if you get in trouble, don't expect the Australian government to save you from the U.S. government.

France- Definitely tons of surveillance. It would be worse there if Sarcozy had gotten re-elected, but still. It's a U.S. ally, hooked up the the wider surveillance/legal grid.

Plus those are all G8 and NATO countries, fyi. I would suggest Mongolia, Guatemala, maybe Venezuela, Indonesia or Morocco.

France's new president isn't necessarily bad just cause he's socialist. Or at least, that doesn't really mean that France will be less or more free in the coming days. State socialists and state capitalists have about the same records on freedom.

The UK? Are you fucking kidding? The place to be is Norway or Sweden or Finland, something along those lines.

Go to work. Send your kids to school. Follow fashion. Act normal. Walk on the pavement. Watch TV. Save for your old age. Obey the law. Repeat after me: "I am free."

Screw those two.
Sweden is basically the butt buddy to the US and Finland requires its citizens to serve 4 years of active duty in the military or go to prison.

Oh. Well, Norway is still okay though. Even with its lutefisk.

Then again, they're still freer than the US will be in about five years, nevermind who's the next president.

Go to work. Send your kids to school. Follow fashion. Act normal. Walk on the pavement. Watch TV. Save for your old age. Obey the law. Repeat after me: "I am free."

Move to New Hampshire, its gonna be the capital of freedom in a few years, or Vermont, they're getting out very soon, the states gonna collapse, or just set up working government in your town, and have it run on consent democracy, challenge the main government, and declare laws, if enough people agree your council is the new government
