How To Be Bully Proof

How to Be Free of Bullies

Group bullying

Groups bully groups, of course. This can even become legalised bullying by that biggest bully group of all: the government. Not any particular government of course. But governments in our modern social structure have power and control over us and the public tend to believe they deserve too much of what is handed down to them instead of seeing government as in fact a legal means to bully a whole nation of people.

 

Think of laws allowing people to be bullied by class, gender, race, colour, religion, physical health and work status. People frequently bully people above them. This is where it is useful to discover if you are a scapegoat, a tension-releaser or have self-sacrificial tendencies.

 

Wars, in my opinion, are large scale incidences of bullying. As governments tend to be bottom feeders in terms of their diplomacy skills, then the big causes of fights, the need to have power and control over others and force them to do things their way and steal other’s assets, are going to rear their ugly heads time and again.  Notice how a country such as China will suddenly stand up and declare: we’re a big economic power, we’re a big financial player, our nation is just as good as yours, if not better. Of course between countries, it can end in fisty-cuffs at the very least after the level of communication has dropped to ‘give me your people/resources/land’ etc and the last resort of: ‘we have a large arsenal of defence’. In fact the arms race is the global scale fight in the playground. Billy Joe sells Bob Braker a new set of marbles. John Jarvis puts his conker in the over for a minute, 3rd country down buys some new rockets, tanks and fighter planes from 2nd country from the right.  And so the whole thing goes on.
