This book is going to talk about one of the most common activities found in human behavior. This is a natural instinct to intimidate, act aggressively and try to cow down the people around you, to show that you are the dominant Alpha person around. This is normally done through threatening, coercion and abusing, and the use of force, either physical or mental or emotional. This book is going to talk about the psychology behind bullying, the reason why people want to do it, how to face it, and survive it, and how to recognize this tendency in other people.
This book is for all those who have felt the negative impact of bullying, at least sometime during their childhood our youth, or perhaps taken part in a mob or a group activity of bullying somebody, just because everybody else was doing it, or just for the fun of it. Sadly enough, that last activity is getting to be more and more common among the younger generation, because it fulfills a desire in them to be considered a part of a social whole, or part of a peer group.
Nevertheless, this has never been a 21st-century phenomenon, it has been present when the world was young and it is going to be present 10 millenniums from now in some form or the other.
Bullying down the ages has never been restricted to just one race or social class or gender. It is instinctive, and human beings have always looked for soft targets, which they can harass physically or verbally, through threat, mental and physical assault and even force or coercion. The victims are normally going to be people different from them, in matters of physical appearance, gender, race, social class, strength, ability, behavior or any other factor, which can be used as an excuse to intimidate a person more helpless than you are.
Man doesn’t need an excuse to bully a person weaker than he is. The underlying instinct for showing that he is a person of power, especially over somebody who cannot fight back or who is incapable of doing so satisfies some uncivilized atavistic feeling in him, which has been passed down, down the ages, and no amount of civilized behavior is going to get this instinct out of Mans’ genes.
