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.

Same, I consider myself pretty conservative on the political spectrum. It called me a democratic national liberal to be exact.

I'm pretty nationalistic, in a cosmopolitan way.

I think my thing would be more accurate if it had an equal value going towards the opposite direction, because generally I encompass two opposite ideas and make sense of it.

RE: Political test

Next to nothing about youth on this test. Typical...

I don't identify myself as either left or right. Either I don't give a shit about which ideal "wins," or I think both sides are absurd. So I call myself "up-wing." Though according to the test I'm a Democrat which is somewhat... concerning. Because my parents are democrats and are complete idiots. I don't want to be a complete idiot.

Now the actual result:

"You are a cosmopolitan Social Democrat. 14 percent of the test participators are in the same category and 13 percent are more extremist than you."

Cosmopolitan 31%
Secular 66%
Visionary 51%
Anarchistic 68%
Communistic 21%
Pacifist 42%
Ecological 6%

Hello, traveler.

This is an ancient account I have not used in a long time. My views have changed much in the intervening months and years.

Nonetheless, I refuse to clean it up. Pretending that I've held my current views since the beginning of time is what we in the industry call a lie. Asking people to do so contributes to moralistic self-loathing. "See, those people have nothing damning! I do! I'm truly vile!"

Because you can never be a good person with a single blemish on the moral record, I thought that simply entertaining some thoughts made me irredeemable. Though I don't care for his writing style, William Faulkner presents a good counterexample. He went from being a typical Southern racist to supporting the civil rights movement. These days we'd yell at him for that, probably.

People are allowed to change their views.

Nevertheless, this period of my life has informed some of how I am today. In good ways and bad ways. To purge it would be to do a disservice to history. Perhaps it will not make anyone sympathetic, but it may help someone understand.

If, after reading all this, you still decide to use the post above as evidence that I am evil today, ask yourself if you have never disagreed with the moral code you now follow. In all likelihood you did, at some point. If some questions are verboten, and the answer is "how dare you ask that," don't expect your ideological opponents to ever change their minds.

I hate Democrats. And Republicans, too. I hate both of those goddamn forsaken parties.

Don't worry if you're labeled a "Social Democrat". That's just what mainstream politics calls you, if that makes any sense. I don't really consider myself anything. The test called me a Cosmopolitan Social Democrat, even though I consider myself just barely on the left on the political spectrum.

Well my shitty kindle wiped my results, grrrrrrr. From what I remember, however, I got cosmopolitan Social Democrat and everything on my graph was over to the left.
Personally, I identify as a Socialist and I support the Green Party.

RE: Political test

Left and right, liberal and conservative are usually subjective. In different areas of the world they tend to stand for different things.

But I think a multiparty(or better yet, single party) system helps make it more clear since parties(the party) will be more specific in its stances rather than America's de facto dual party where they just lump into two blocks.

Its all theoretical though. Politics isnt a fixed science but rather changes based on society. Left could mean dictator and right could mean democracy if it becomes some growing nation's policy to lump the crazy authoritarians to the left of the building and the hippy free republic lovers to the right.

Yep. I'm fairly certain that at one point the Democrats were conservative while the Republicans were liberal. Funny how things change, eh?

RE: Political test

Yeah it was when there was that third party. I think the switch happened when the third party died out and its members joined the republicans which then pretty much flipped the democrats the republicans. Or I might be remembering wrong. American political parties would be two, the one dies and another appears, then they flip, and theresanother third, then suddenly six pop up then things stablize with the two remaining ones.

Crazy I tell ya.

Political test

There were various 3rd parties throughout American history. There were the Whigs, for example.

It's also been said that Republicans traditionally have supported small government but that's changed over the past 10 years. Things like the PATRIOT Act and also SOPA and PIPA received a lot of support from Republicans.

Political test

What happened was the Democratic Republicans turned into the Democratic party and the Republican party was originally a single issue party against slavery, the first presidential candidate being Abraham Lincoln. Later it developed a bigger platform. During the Great Depression, however, the Republicans said "Hey, we should just let the businesses sort this out for themselves." and the Democrats said "No, we should fix this with the government.", which was the opposite of what they would have said before. Because of this, they switched places and the Democratic party is the more liberal party while the Republican party is more conservative.

Yeah, neoconservatives have become the establishment and they support growing the government in a number of dangerous and nasty ways. There's a growing sentiment against this and I don't think the republicans are going to continue to garner enough support to win elections without pushing back to the platform of smaller government. There's definitely a need for it in American politics right now since people are waking up to the damage that's been caused by our policy of expanding government in to areas it has no business being in but politicians are failing completely to catch up. It just goes to show that they're motivated not by their need to provide for the needs of the American public but rather by their special interests.
