Who Are the Bullies?

Say the word “bully” and most people picture this sort of thing. They imagine one big bully kid who terrorizes everyone and takes everyone’s lunch money — like Nelson on the Simpsons.

If people were that one-dimensional, life would be very simple: We’d just identify all the bullies and kick them out of school. The problem would be solved completely in a week’s time and we’d all go about our lives.
