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.

Capitalism is killing our planet.

Go ahead. Prove me wrong.

"I heard a joke once. Man goes to doctor says "I'm terribly depressed". Doctor says "I know just what you should do. Poliacci the clown is in town, go see him, you'll be cheered right up." The man bursts into tears. "But Doctor, I am Poliacci." Funny joke. Roll on snare drum. Everyone laugh."

All is right but last part. Bill gates isn't some super nerd but a shrewd snake business man who stole the ideas and windows itself from his business partners and he already came from a wealthy family anyway. Its why in high school I hated his shitty little motivators when all he did was cheat and con to get his way to the top.

Good old capitalism ripping off everybody else so I can have everything to myself.

ALSO INBF BOBMAN AND OR JOHN TUTTLE.

Numbers needed to be thinned out and destroying capitalism itself would do no good if people still had the greed of the capitalism system.

Carla Franklin may be a whore. She may be a wonderful, kind, moral woman. Seeing as I don't know her personally, I cannot know for sure. However, I find her actions (suing Google, requesting the personal info of her critics, getting angry over random internet idiocy that she should ignore and be bigger than, trying to get this site in trouble because of a few users' commentary on the situation, etc.) pretty ridiculous and unwarranted. If she didn't want people to to be talking about/judging her, well 1. that's impossible, she's a human, and 2. she shouldn't have been a model or agreed to be on film. AND 3. she DEFINITELY shouldn't have sued Google and made all this fuss over a few random idiots whom she probably won't ever know expressing their opinion. Mmkay? MMKAY.

It's an oxymoron.

Quote:Capitalism is an economic system in which the means of production are privately owned; supply, demand, price, distribution, and investments are determined mainly by private decisions in the free market, rather than through a planned economy; and profit is distributed to owners who invest in businesses. Capitalism also refers to the process of capital accumulation

Quote:"No rulership or enforced authority."[1]
"A social state in which there is no governing person or group of people, but each individual has absolute liberty (without the implication of disorder.) But is bound by a social code ."[2]
"Absence of government; a state of lawlessness due to the absence or inefficiency of the supreme power; political disorder."[3]
"Absence or non-recognition of authority and order in any given sphere."[4]
"Acting without waiting for instructions or official permission... The root of anarchism is the single impulse to do it yourself: everything else follows from this." [5]

If there is no enforcement or central authority, people can basically take part in a free market bartering system... I don't see how it's an oxymoron... It wouldn't grow to the ridiculous large scale it has in the modern world, but it would still, in it's basic form, be capitalism.

Re: Capitalism is killing our planet.

Capitalism is anarchy with bosses and rules. It's an intentionally hierarchical system where there is always a divide between the rich minority and the poor majority. How can that ever be considered anarchic?

Perhaps completely and entirely anarchy based systems would eventually run into a hierarchy. Unless people watched out for such things, and avoided businesses in which case it wouldn't really be a complete and pure form of anarchy. Really, there needs to be some sort of system in place to avert large businesses for anarchy to work, as you have previously stated...

Sure, but that's an opinion.

Chaos - a state of utter confusion or disorder; a total lack of organization or order.

Some would disagree with you.

That's not an opinion. Anarchism is an egalitarian organized civilization without a state. Capitalism relies on both the state to defend it's economy and the class system the fragile house of cards afloat.

Modern Anarchism and Capitalism are polar opposites by definition. They CANNOT coexist.

Is to. What if I said, "Anarchism is chaotic." and "Capitalism is a strong system which is orderly and fair".

It's clearly an opinion.
