HOMEWORK IS SLAVERY

DOWN WITH STATE SCHOOL TYRANNY

Plus schools are basically little stalinist states: Everyone is equal apart from one person at the top of the ladder. Proof of subtle communist indoctrination if ever I saw it

Having to seduce women is slavery! The state should nationalize the means of production AND the feminine gender! Power to the masculine masses!

RAWR!

On a serious note: I hated to go to school, and I hated homework. However, now that I look back on it, I am glad I went to school. I'm glad that it prepared me for university life. I am glad that was made to go to school so that I could form the adult I would become.

I've always liked school. Is this weird? :?

I don't do homework unless it's required for coursework or whatever.

I am quite sure that there are a couple of teens in this site who wouldn't post something like this thread. Do not worry. However, the only demographic that would actually call school 'slavery' tends to be that of teenage hood.

Reminds of of that thread that kid posted about school. The one with the green superman flag. He had some similiar ideas to the OP. 'Course he wasn't the brightest crayon in the box.

I love school and I would never write like that. I'm a national spelling bee champion, an honour roll student and a proud grammar nazi. I'm also a "lower teen". Don't discriminate based on age, thanks.

Plus, it would allow those who work hard to actually be successful. Eh?


:eyebrow: Hardly successful. Do you realise the horror of having almost half the population illiterate? Successful? Successful? Not when you're being robbed every other day. Crime rates going up, social inequality reaching unimaginable standards, etc. No, thanks, I prefer the "slavery".

It is almost universally felt that when we call a country democratic we are praising it; consequently, the defenders of every kind of regime claim that it is a democracy, and fear that they might have to stop using the word if it were tied down to any one meaning.

As much as the factory-style education that we currently practice is in dire need of transformation, to call it slavery is idiotic. Universal education is a necessary condition for a free society. Which is why it is mandated.

No, it isn't.
It is damn pointless. You force someone who doesn't want to go to school, they wont learn they will just hamper rest of class and use resorces which could be better used on other students.

Be quiet minority! I'm just saying, most 12-13 year olds post like that. Hell, I might've posted like that a couple of years ago. But I'm a spelling nut so... meh. Anyway, it was a joke-ish generalisation. :P
