12. where I served in West Africa there was a man
who dressed up in a very scary costume once a year and went around the village beating any woman whose husband had not beaten her during the past year.

This beating of people is a horror, I could not take watching this. I came to hate that woman beating culture with such a vengeance. And I hate hearing about this in the Korean culture as well. My brother-in-law who worked in a Korean High School said that the teachers regularly beat the kids there, that the parents expected the teachers to do this.

I hope that in time, worldwide, these dominating behaviors die out.
