A New Approach to Bullying
I've been thinking about a new approach to bullies. Operating from the principle that people are doing the best they can with the resources they have, would it make sense to empower bullies?
That isn't to say that we should empower bullies to bully even more. The idea is that bullies are getting something from pushing other people around. Instead of ostracizing them and acting as if they are bad people, we should teach them. Teach them new ways of accessing those internal resources that they can come to win-win behaviours.
I know this is a touchy subject and it's not to be unsympathetic towards people who are bullied. In fact, I think the solution for the bullied person is similar. You can't be bullied when you are empowered.
