Bullies do not have any legitmacy-they are evil- Authority assumes rule by right of some nature of law.
Of course not-and you know it. You sound like an anarcist. I wrote "Authority assumes rule by right of some nature of law"-
Shall we debate the validity of law rules of duties and rights,
power-conferring rules, legitimacy and legal principles?
Well; there is a BIG difference in "Bullying" , abusing your strength and power over someone in a physical / mental way ..... and using your "Strict Authority" to get the job done etc ...
I will agree that there are SOME in positions of authority that do go overboard with their "power" and take it to the level of "Bullying" ; BUT they usually have someone that they can be reported to who will put a stop to their actions .
