Everyone should face down their demons at least once in life.
Have I ever mentioned that I despise bullies? If not, you must have inferred.
Bullying can come in all forms–corporate corruption, abuse of power by wealthy elites, or just your garden variety punks in the schoolyard. I think the thing that bugs me most about bullying is that it’s not just done with a particular end in mind; often, the joy of dominating and subordinating the weak is as big a reward to the bully as whatever concrete gain they sustain as a result.
That’s why those who refuse to back down deserve our unending praise.
