That's a topic I could rant about forever. Once I remarked that we need more world history, not just US, but then everyone shouted "I wanna learn about my own country!" That's great, morons, this is why people think Americans are stuck-up arrogant idiots. Bother to learn something about another country.

This came from the same class that said weak countries shouldn't form alliances because they start wars. No, they spread wars, at worst. And alliances work. Look at Serbia after WW1, decidedly un-pancake like, a large part of which was due to, you guessed it, alliances!

There are a few outspoken pacifists that I constantly butt heads with in class debates. And then the rest of the class sides with them, so it ends up being me vs. class, and the teachers.

Which leads into another subject, which is that we need to put Diplomacy into schools. Required, play a game in History for a week, to learn about international relations, and remove the naïve "if we don't form alliances, no one will ever invade us".

I have same arguments in my class too, only we do it instead of going to lessons such as computing (which I'm still forced have at least one period a week even though I'm not doing it for my GCSEs) I don't know why but my entire school and teachers are stupid, ignorant, idiotic and totally clueless, yet they still find the need or they get aroused or something whenever they attempt to argue with me about politics. What I think happened was that a meteor hit each one of their houses when they were born and they were exposed to idiot dust.

There's two parts to Britain.

The huge city (London)
And the wild lands (Scotland)

See?
