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.

Imprisoning Japanese Americans During the Second World War

I surfed onto this tonight...

http://www.topazmuseum.org/

I put it under the category of youth rights because there were children and teens locked up - people who did absolutely nothing wrong.. and were given no trials etc.

I started to cry when I read some of the stories.

It reminds me that they are, evidently, building some kind of big centers like prisons in the USA just in case they need to one day put a whole lot of people in them. They are called FEMA centers or something - with barbed wire around them. Here is one article..

Yeah. And we get all riled up when we say Nazi's had concentration camps and were evil. Obviously they weren't the only ones.

"Huh, why does that concentration camp have an American flag?"

To be fair, the injustice doled out by the Americans doesn't diminish the significance of the atrocities carried out in Germany. It simply means they were both assholes.

It doesn't diminish the significance sure, but it's worse in the sense a country whose supposed ideals are "freedom and liberty" decide to jail up a whole nationality/race. I honestly just think the one's in charge were looking to compensate for their failure of preventing the attack on Pearl Harbor.

FEMA camps are complete bullshit. Most "evidence" for FEMA camps are of military bases that were already built, to camps that exist in other countries. Unfortunately though, we do have the existence of actual concentration camps, not for political activists, but "troubled" young people, located in foreign countries.

That doesn't mean that the U.S hasn't done bullshit in the past... FFS we pretty much committed genocide in Guatemala, yet no one has even vaguely punished the US for that... and that genocide cripples that country to this very day. Not that I see the US ever getting sanctioned, despite some ridiculously immoralistic actions; we have too much influence.

US involvement in Guatemala plunged them into a half-century civil war.

Vietnam'll be okay. Wink

And need I remind you that, while the USA had concentration camps, they didn't have oven, showers, or work people to death?

Some guy who was a general or something in the military said the United States would definitely be held accountable for war crimes if it had lost the war. World War II, I think

RE: Imprisoning Japanese Americans During the Second World War

We literally Nuked two civi cities lol

Also we committed loads of war crimes in Vietnam. The fact that they're doing sort of O.k now is incidental.

Even in modern warfare we have committed War crimes. The U.S should not be viewed as a morally superior nation by any stretch. Very few nations can actually claim to have a good moral track record, lel. Certainly not the United States.

Yeah but on average we're not better than most modern nations. Nazi Germany, China and Russia are more or less outliers in the long run.

The Neocon/Libertarian way is best way. Just totally don't remember every atrocity the US committed and commits, and accuse everyone else of being evil/naughty/despotic/tyrannical/abusive.

Imprisoning Japanese Americans During the Second World War

Most Libertarians don't even support war as far as I'm concerned... hell I'm pretty sure they're aware of the bullshit we've done.

Don't think there's much difference between Dems and Reps when it comes to taking responsibility on shit like Guatemala.

My knowledge of libertarianism comes from uncyclopedia.

They dont support war, but theyd support a private army, and a private army profits from war non?
