I think it's disturbing to see so much hate on social media. I can't even count the number of times Ive seen hate online. Im not even remotely surprised to see the reports, in the US, of bullying towards mexican americans and muslim americans in schools, and politically motivated bullying. Im not even from the US, and this isnt an issue limited to the US.

But I have experienced a fair share of bullying over the years as a kid and online harassment as an adult.

I think that people who think it's OK to bully, intimidate and abuse someone needs to think about why they are doing it.

Do you do it, because you hate people that are different from you?

Do you do it, for the sake of feeling better?

Do you do it because you see women as inferior to men?

Do you do it because you cannot disagree without being an asshole?

The Society is full of different people I've heard loners are a target of discrimination.

I would explain there are several factors that can lead people to be hateful.

The first is entertainment: It seems the majority of entertainment is based on aggression. Film, Music, Games etc, all have a level of aggression where to enjoy the theme one needs to accept the concept of constantly being at odds with the world. Fighting to be better, faster and more bad ass then anyone else.

The second is social media: People enjoy sharing and watching others getting owned. Where people are tricked and abused. How often someone has been pranked and the joke has gone viral.

The third is news media: The news media that we see these days almost glorifies carnage and bloodshed. We can watch wars in all their up close technicolour gory glory. Over time it desensitises people to pain.

I dont think 'owning' people is necessarily a form of hate. I had to put people in the place, many times, for being rude and aggressive, and- yes- hateful. But that doesnt mean I hate that particular person. I think people spread hatred and intimidate people online, rather because they get reckognition over it; a sense of bellonging.

But yes, everything else you Said is a valid point

I've been bullied my whole life, from childhood into adulthood. It eased up in my mid-twenties when I started becoming more sociable and physically active (started training in Martial Arts and enlisted into Army Reserves). I noticed after so much perseverance and being active that I was happier, more confident and literally walking around with a straight back and head held high. I didn't feel inferior to everyone like I used to and the random negativity I'd get from people became very rare.

...but that's just me. From experience, a lot of bullying is from an inferiority complex (they put you down to make themselves feel better) and the bully is often the victim of bullying or abuse of some kind, they're just passing the pain onto someone vulnerable. NOW we have the internet and other forms of communications so these bullies can harass and 'Troll' overs from the safe distance behind their desk in the comfort of their desk chair without direct conflict.

Oddly or sadly I was bullied by my Mother. She never missed a chance to Jess with me. Now she’s dead I still feel angst just think of her.

Sorry to hear that, Trappernicus. That's rough. It's a really bad memory and the thing about those memories is when they return to you, your body reacts to it. It's understandable and natural. I do it too sometimes. : (

Because they're Emotionally-Stunted?

Raised to be Entitled?

Pathologically-Envious?

One does not need to have actually ever even HAD ONE JOB (stressful or otherwise) in order To Have A Raging Temper.

They maybe didn't even personally BUY the computer used, nor are they even personally PAYING for the internet used. Maybe they're also Dotingly-Privileged ad nauseum.
