I've been reading up on US history for school and damn I knew it was fucked up but I didn't know it was this fucked up. I thought the worst was the Trail of Tears. Turns out I was wrong.

I recommend language courses, especially Latin or Greek. My school has a course called Western Civ, which focuses on Greece and Rome, and if you have a similar course at your school I recommend that. History courses in general also couldn't hurt

oh shit, didn't realize there was one already. This one is specifically for tankies that come to Raddle though, not just tankies online in general. Basically just taking their arguments and posting them here so that people can observe how bad it gets even when they leave their usual communities.

Yeah, I have a bunch. I try to stay away from having certain groups of friends though, because those always end with drama and/or having to hang out with people I don't like. But just having a bunch of close friends is nice.

Welp, I managed to get a 68 on a math quiz. I don't like math very much, and I'm not that good at it, but usually I manage to get like a 90 or something.

Really just tired of everything right now. I'd really like to just spend a day curled up in bed but I have stuff to do.

I have an exchange student and boy is it a struggle to get her to do stuff that she needs to do. Don't get me wrong, I'm fine with her doing whatever she wants, but I don't want her to get lost in a strange town on a different continent from her home.

Thank you, this was a very detailed answer. Biden is a bastard unaware of all that happened, as are most other candidates, I think.

your experience in Australia though... I can only imagine how that must have sucked. Even if you aren't the biggest fan of the U.S., it's not right to say that 3,000 people deserved to die.

Your instincts were right it seems. things did get worse, and quickly too. They haven't gotten better either, in my opinion. In less than a month, kids will be able to sign up in the army to fight in a war they weren't even alive for the beginning of. Though I am generally anti-war, this especially seems like a crime in this day and age, where even the longest wars typically last only 10 years.

I know one or two other than myself, but there are probably thousands or even millions worldwide, and even more if you consider those who hold anarchist views but don't call themselves anarchists.
