  •  Interesting way of looking at it. (8+ / 0-)

    I believe some bullies I encountered in school, came from very dysfunctional homes. Some may have evolved out of their behavior, to the point they're horrified by it today. Others may have integrated a bullying streak, with society's full blessing, to the point they're reactionaries today.

      Most of the ones I knew came from messed up families, with fathers who hit them if they were around at all. But the single worst bully I ever had to deal with was from a perfectly normal, well-off family. He was spoiled rotten, natch.
