Of all the forces of darkness upon the world, hatred is at the top of the list. While most people would say they hate evil, the definition of what is evil for some people in society is questionable.
The Effects of Bullying
While bullying is a notorious problem in primary education settings such as K-12 schools, its scope has significantly branched out with the rise of the Internet and social media. More and more people are emboldened to harass, intimidate, threaten, abuse, bully, and attack others on these forums.
Bullying is an approach that is often used by people who hate others. They may feel a sense of superiority, may wish to create a feeling of superiority over those they bully, or they may harbor immense jealousy. But no matter what the reason for their abusive behavior, it is always destructive.
Battling Bullying with an Anti-Hate Campaign
For the victim of bullying, it can be a painful, life-changing experience. One of the most important ways to change the effects of bullying is to remove the bullies from the victim’s life or remove their ability to affect the victim. This should always be enhanced with a rallying group of supporters for the victim, putting the bully on notice their behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
The only way to stop a bully is by empowering the victim with substantial support and protection from healthy and caring individuals. These should be those who refuse to accept, coddle, or enable the actions of the bully or bullies. For people who are looking for anti-hate campaign support, I SHOUT OUT is a voice for the oppressed.
