Act of bullying is irresponsible. It feasts out from illegal position of a cock seeking any kind of possibility to humiliate, rip off dignity, power, humanity to take power and hold that position. Bully is arrogant and thinks he or she is superior. Person collects a herd of adorers around to prove this excellence which is a show off and an image created with outer signs of something to admire. For very young people something to admire are things that can be bought, signs of power are signs of having wealth. Only things that matter in this scene are those possessions that bring admiration and the feeling of being better than. When those things are taken away position is very different. Appreciation to material things is what very young people like to have, which they like to compare and hang on to. Such immaturity also applies to many adults, which means mental growth does not self-evidently follow aging and values are something that are connected to how people treat each other. The more culture bases emphasis on material things being the ultimate measure of worth the more people are bullied for not having things they are supposed to have to belong and be grand. To teach children to appreciate people without signs of wealth is essential. Elitism is one definite reason division happens over and over again. Desire to belong to the elite, no matter what the elite is and stands for, is a yearning for many. It makes one feel important, powerful and able. It can also give permission to act in irresponsible violent manner, because what the elite does is somehow correct and righteous, otherwise they would not be the elite. To talk about the elite, that some group is the elite takes responsibility as such. One has to define what elite means and what this particular group does is better and outstanding compared to the rest.
In a group bully is safe. Alone a bully is nothing. She or he is doing something acceptable and cool in a group, which is otherwise punishable, shameful and wrong, but this vowed group stand behind anything within they decide. Ill can be done to prove superiority, character and toughness, but there has to be witness to see shame caused to someone, hurt caused, enjoyed and spread for others to continue and leave the different loser outside the fun. For bully to lose his or her power is isolate, to say she or he does not have power over others with violence or with any other measures this person and group of persons seek power position over others or over one person. When power through violence is not power it loses and this has to be shown.
True problem is when bullying is accepted, ignored, minimized as something normal we all have to cope and tolerate with. That bullies can’t be hit back. When extreme violence, mental torture and sadistic behavior continue among school kids, at work, on the net, on the street and it cannot be answered to bullies continue. They do not face trial, public shaming, they do not learn what kind of pain they cause unless they are given adequate punishment as any criminal. To face the consequences is what happens in adult world. Authorities do not completely comprehend how serious crime bullying is and what kinds of consequences and scars it leaves behind. Psychotherapy is costly, so is a mass shooting. Do bullies go to therapy? Maybe after a mass shooting if they have survived. When papers talk about school shootings asking why this happens, all in horror, how is this possible, papers characterize the shooters as psychopaths, outcasts, loners who are a threat to society, one wonders what are the bullies? One also wonders how bullies seem to climb the ladder quite easily in the world. What is their responsibility when a disaster hits? They do not have any. They have become victims of visible bloodbath. When a school shooting is a result of years long bullying, I ask who truly is the psychopath, irresponsible nutcase who ruins lives?
To celebrate and protect a bully is what society and authority does.
