There are a number of things in the history of humans that at the time, people thought would be impossible to stop, but it worked. Maybe I am naive, but I think if people begin to raise their children, showing them that bullying is not acceptable, eventually things will change.
Your world is pretty dark and dismal.
At one point in human history people thought it was ok to treat black people as less than human. Thoughts changed gradually over time. Neither of my children see skin colour. They will teach their children to do the same. My children don't bully. They are being taught to stand up to bullying and that it is definitely not ok. They will teach their children this. It's boneheads like you that slow down the process. Crawl back into the cave from whence you came.
I guess we will have to agree to disagree then. I don't see it that way.
No one individual can end bullying in the entire world. But, if we each do our part it will help. Bullies are just losers with no self-esteem. The only way to stop them is to stand up to them. Those that ignore them are just saying it is Okay.
Yes Bravery is what's needed Against these Bullies.
BS, women can be and are bullies too. Alpha males? How humorous. I have taken down more than one "alpha male" that tried to bully me, as well as females. You sound like you are defending bullies, WTF?
It needs to stop, period. It lead to much more things, mine led to rape. It's a problem and it harms. I'm on disability because of it. I have PTSD because of it. I don't go outside hardly because of it. Where I used to live I couldn't leave my house because I'd get jumped. My house has been vandalized many times. It needs to stop and I think we can put a stop to it if we try,
No, it's a bullying problem, bullying is what started it.
We will never end many things, but that doesn't mean we should learn to tolerate them.
YESS!!!! I WILL CONQUER IN THIS WORLD, I WILL BRONG THE EVIL OF ALL BULLYING, WHICH CAUSES MORE EVILS IN THIS WORLD TO A VERY STEADY HAULT!!!!!
People made the same arguments in favor of slavery. It was a system that mankind used for several millennia, so no one thought to get rid of it until a few hundred years ago. Why shouldn't people try to end bullying? If people stuck with the same old same, mankind would have never made progress
I never said it did. I'm just saying that if people don't try to make a change, they won't change anything
Which leads us back to my original point. Do you think women should go back to being property too? How about we just get rid of democracy and bring back kings? Seems like your kinda thing
The funny thing about human nature is that no two psychologists can agree on what it is. There have been many, many over the years that have come up with theories, but none of the theories match exactly. Unless you know more about our behavior than the hordes of people who have studied it for longer than you've been alive, don't talk to me about human nature. Calling bullying human nature is a copout. If it were human nature, everyone would be a bully and bullying wouldn't be called a problem. Yet there are clear victims and perpetrators. Why?
It's not common sense just because you say it is. It's not human nature just because you say it is. You don't get to treat your opinions as facts because it makes your argument convenient. Intimidation isn't what all people do when angry, and bullying is seldom done out of anger. Bullying often takes place as a group. You mean to tell me that these groups of people decided that they are all angry at some weak nerdy kid that did nothing to offend them and decided to bully him?
