Welcome! - Introduction to /sig/ Nathan Board owner 10/04/2021 (Mon) 12:02:00 No. 5 [Reply]
/sig/ is a board focused on self-help and growth for our despondent anons in the greater board culture. Because there is no one answer to the amount of questions regarding our current state of affairs, anons are encourage to provide as many ideas as possible. As always, global rules will be enforced. Info: - This is not /r9k/ and this is not /pol/ Although it can be easy to vent about one's issues all day (as sometimes we just need someone to talk to), this board discourages "crab mentality" in its entirety. Similarly, this also means anons are discouraged from validating or approving of "doomposting." >I just want to end myself >Well why haven't you done so already? The above exchange will not be tolerated

They hated us, so we left them Anonymous 10/11/2021 (Mon) 14:19:19 No. 6 [Reply]
Let's face facts and get to the point of why we're here. Society doesn't want you and it doesn't want me. The System has never wanted you and doesn't want you back because you can't offer it anything. You are its "original sin" for being born the way you are and there is no changing it. The obvious thing many of us have tried to do is to "work within" the system. You see this right now with parents protesting Critical Race Theory in the classroom as Marxist education that will divide their students. While many of these parents have grievances with the education system, there are still many who believe that it can be "fixed." You'll hear talk of how the teacher's unions are corrupt, or the quality of the education is low because of Bush/Obama's "No Child Left Behind," and Common Core curriculum. "If only these things changed, then the schools would be better!" But that is not how it works. It's a band-aid on a broken wound. That system is of no particular good anymore (in fact, its purposes are for evil and propaganda) and it doesn't want you - so the only solution is to leave it. >So what do we do now? This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. And it's part of the reason I've created this board. Every decision we make, we should ask ourselves this: "How will this make me more self-sufficient?" Our goals will be to find avenues and means of cheating the very system that hates us. >They don't want you to be a "credit card hacker." >They don't want you to homeschool your children. >They don't want you to value your privacy and want you to believe that giving up your data "protects children" and you from "domestic terrorism." <They DO want you to be dependent on usury in a capitalist system that will bleed you of all your finances <They DO want you to send your kids to a class where a woman will lecture your boys on why the White race is evil and how their interests in heroism or fighting is wrong. <They DO want you to be dependent on Apple and Microsoft's geolocation services, text messaging, photo and cloud services so anything you send or receive can be monitored by them. You may be in a situation many of us are in where a dream of having your own property with your wife and children sounds near unattainable. I wouldn't argue with you if you told me the system is robbing us of valuable time we could be using to create a five or ten-year plan to escape it. But understand that patience is a virtue. The more time you put into small steps towards your independence, the closer you will be to achieving your goals. This won't be quick and easy. This will be years of struggle and you will have days, weeks, maybe even months of despair. I want this board to serve as an outreach for those in this struggle. So if you have concerns or don't believe you can make it, rest assured that together WAGMI.
