36. For bullies it is about them, not the victim. The victim is nothing, barely exists


in mind of the bully, I think. Too easy to pick on the defenseless because we have bought into this individualism nonsense. Sometimes it's all about feeding some deficiency in the bully's broken spirit, maybe by beating up on them. (Less obvious is when they are just propping up their own ego by telling jokes about the victims. Like they were dogs. As if several million dogs and cats aren't killed by us each year, many after incredible pain and suffering, because of our laziness and indeptitude...but that's another post)

In any event, he may well be lying - it seems to be a favorite pastime of Rmoney - but I can see how a bully might not recall something unless reminded, aqnd even then maybe not.

The victim is left alone with the graphic details of whatever occurred. For every day they have after that.
