Anyone who’s been in the real playground of life knows there comes a time when a school bully must be confronted or avoided. Unfortunately avoidance will not appease, diplomatic negotiation is laughable. Hoping the buffoon will tire is simply, well forget that. In the majority of situations gender male is visually the most prominent. Females have their own insidious versions of bullying, most of which is done in the shadowy silent world, but its males who really excel due to their biology and testosterone chemical combination. They are a slice of societies syndrome types from birth backward, a growing mass who continue to bully into adulthood and beyond. Yes, they are deemed to be cowards who surround their pathetic ego with a battalion of Constable Cowards and Major meatheads. But they are very real, very present in the formative lives of youth, very clearly dangerous to society and now increasingly gender bender bullying the world at large.
The lag in human evolution keeping pace with a rapidly growing awareness of chaos is causing a convergent imbalance, a separation spawning more and more chaotic events and characters. Instead of embracing the reality facing our growing understanding, we are now at the verge. Looking backward and running backward like reactive agents to what we perceive as comfortable and predictable.
Stepping once again into the frightened void are the same old populist players in different form. They never went away; they just re-emerged when the condition was right, for them.
Yet what’s most uncomfortable about the bully nature is not that they actually exist, it’s the fact that they are true seekers of full on self serving happiness. Whether they obtain happiness on a generally consensus agreed level or not isn’t for any other to know, given that happiness is a very subjective solitary sensation. A sadist can really get off in a very private sensational way, so who is the ultimate truthful judge.
Aren’t we all in danger of becoming a version or another in the endless manifestation of what makes a bully, in an age where self-gratification is quite frankly a right, an expectation of entitlement? In a climate of celebratory adulation of attention, getting physically noticed requires methods that if not deliberate, certainly play on the rim of bullying.
Human societies evolved to be egalitarian. They had to develop a sense of reasoning, a battle for equality and balanced survival, or perish in chaotic anarchy, ultimate survival of the brutal bully. That war, on standing with and up for the down and trod on, has continued, until now.
Now the reality is murky not clear. Fake can be real, lies can be true, right can be wrong, left can be right. Along with this chaotic ramping up has come a reality of stratospheric attention seeking. Competition on everything is fuelling a stampede. A get out of my way mentality, I will just ride over you to get want I want.
There’s a huge risk in an actual truth that you’re not here to make anyone other than yourself happy. If that’s a biological reality the risk isn’t how to make you happy. The danger of our modern time is what you will do to others, meaning all others, to obtain your happiness at the risk of theirs.
