The Bullying Epidemic Hitting Our Youth: What Causes A Person To Bully And How Can It Be Prevented?

by Rhonda Taylor

The Bullying Epidemic Can Be Defeated!!

Bullying is a widespread epidemic which has impacted countless lives and has resulted in kids who suffer needlessly in silence. Discover the reasons behind a bully’s behavior and how positive life experiences can make all the difference in producing kids who feel empowered, respected, loved, all of which creates positive feelings within themselves and towards others. Our youth’s academic, extracurricular activities, personal lives, as well as aspirations can all be crushed as a result of becoming the target of a bully.

A Bully is Weaker Than the Bullied

In reality the bully is weak and vulnerable, whereas the victim is actually stronger. Many times the bully is hurting deep inside and crying out for help in non-constructive ways and may have negative internal emotions which motivate them in their actions such as:

Negative life events can also be a contributing factor for a bully’s behavior such as:

-Dysfunctional Home Life
-Mental Health Issues
-Self-Esteem Issues

Although the victims of bullying are much stronger than the bully, bullying can completely alter a person’s life in very dramatic and profound ways. When bullying becomes extreme and there seems to be no end in sight, many kids have taken their own life in order to escape the suffering. This is so unfortunate and deeply depressing concerning the youth in our society, as what could have been a beautiful and flourishing life is cut short by the senseless act of bullying.

The Bully’s Motivation Stems from Weaknesses

By realizing that a bully’s motivation stems from weaknesses, our youth can be better able to arm themselves should they ever be confronted with this type of situation. Our youth should not suffer alone, any longer, as there are many resources that they can turn to for help. By getting inside the mind of a bully and what motivates them in their behavior, a person is better equipped to deal with the problem and discover that it has nothing to do with them (the victim) personally, but rather is underlying issues within the bully.

Both “The Bully” and “The Victim” Suffer

The receiver of the bullying suffers tremendously as the result of the bully’s suffering. Ironically, both suffer from the same emotions although they stem from different sources. A victim can experience depression, anxiety, loneliness, fear, and other negative emotions. On the flipside, the bully suffers the same emotions which may stem from negative life factors that they experience and how they feel about themselves and the world around them. Everyone has a life story, some positive and some negative, and it is how those life experiences can affect a person in either a healthy or an unhealthy way.

By being able to view bullying from a whole different perspective, we are better able to understand what motivates a person to lash out at other’s in such negative ways, and we can begin to take proactive measures to eliminate it which benefits both the bully and the victim.

The Ethics of Criticism

by Tobin Siebers

Tobin Siebers asserts that literary criticism is essentially a form of ethics. The Ethics of Criticism investigates the moral character of contemporary literary theory, assessing a wide range of theoretical approaches in terms of both the ethical presuppositions underlying the critical claims and the attitudes fostered by the approaches. Building on analyses of the moral legacies of Plato, Kant, Nietzsche, and Freud, Siebers identifies the various fronts on which the concerns of critical theory impinge on those of ethics.

Die fröhliche Wissenschaft (Vollständige Ausgabe: Buch 1 bis 5): Aphorismensammlung des Autors von Also sprach Zarathustra, Der Antichrist und Jenseits von Gut und Böse (German Edition)

by Friedrich Nietzsche

Die fröhliche Wissenschaft enthält Gedanken zu unterschiedlichsten Themen in fast 400 Aphorismen verschiedener Länge. Im ersten Buch werden die Möglichkeit der Erkenntnis sowie Aufgabe und Nutzen der Wissenschaft problematisiert. Die Abschnitte behandeln Themen der Erkenntnistheorie, Wissenschaftstheorie und Psychologie im Sinne einer Philosophie des Geistes. Das zweite Buch behandelt insbesondere Fragen zur Kunst und zu Künstlern; überlegungen über Frauen und das Verhältnis der Geschlechter zum Thema. Das Buch enthält auch eine Reihe von Auseinandersetzungen mit Nietzsches früheren Leitbildern Arthur Schopenhauer und Richard Wagner. Das dritte Buch ist hauptsächlich Fragen der Religion und Moral gewidmet. Die Sentenzen 268 bis 275 bestehen nur noch aus knappen persönlichen Fragen und Antworten, die gleichzeitig Kernthemen von Nietzsches Philosophie anklingen lassen. Das vierte Buch, “Sanctus Januarius”, beginnt mit einem (Selbst-)Appell zur Bejahung des Lebens und Denkens. In diesem Buch finden sich gehäuft Selbstbetrachtungen. Im fünften Buch wird vor allem das Problem des Nihilismus von verschiedenen Seiten beleuchtet. So wird bereits im ersten Abschnitt das “Gott ist tot”-Thema wieder aufgenommen und erläutert, es folgen einige Ã?berlegungen zur Entwertung der Werte und zur “Selbstaufhebung der Moral”, die sich auch in den etwa zur gleichen Zeit entstandenen Vorreden zu den Neuausgaben früherer Werke wiederfinden.

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) war ein deutscher klassischer Philologe. Den jungen Nietzsche beeindruckte besonders die Philosophie Schopenhauers. Später wandte er sich von dessen Pessimismus ab und stellte eine radikale Lebensbejahung in den Mittelpunkt seiner Philosophie. Sein Werk enthält scharfe Kritiken an Moral, Religion, Philosophie, Wissenschaft und Formen der Kunst. Die zeitgenössische Kultur war in seinen Augen lebensschwächer als die des antiken Griechenlands. Wiederkehrendes Ziel von Nietzsches Angriffen ist vor allem die christliche Moral sowie die christliche und platonistische Metaphysik. Er stellte den Wert der Wahrheit überhaupt in Frage und wurde damit Wegbereiter postmoderner philosophischer Ansätze. Auch Nietzsches Konzepte des “Ã?bermenschen”, des “Willens zur Macht” oder der “ewigen Wiederkunft” geben bis heute Anlass zu Deutungen und Diskussionen.

Combining essential insights with accessible, non-technical language, it offers a valuable resource for academics, technicians and policy-makers alike.

Feminizing the Fetish: Psychoanalysis and Narrative Obsession in Turn-of-the Century France

by Emily Apter

Shoes, gloves, umbrellas, cigars that are not just objectsâ??the topic of fetishism seems both bizarre and inevitable. In this venturesome and provocative book, Emily Apter offers a fresh account of the complex relationship between representation and sexual obsession in turn-of-the-century French culture. Analyzing works by authors in the naturalist and realist traditions as well as making use of documents from a contemporary medical archive, she considers fetishism as a cultural artifact and as a subgenre of realist fiction. Apter traces the web of connections among fin-de-siècle representations of perversion, the fiction of pathology, and the literary case history. She explores in particular the theme of “female fetishism” in the context of the feminine culture of mourning, collecting, and dressing.

Trump Gross: Donald Trump is a â??Sleazyâ? Human Being, say Seniors

by Dave Masko

Trump Gross, by Dave Masko. There are good reasons a Donald Trump and Russian “conspiracy” is taking hold now during the summer of 2017 as Trump’s heart runs cold on very not summer days, say “new journalism” reporters and artists here in central Oregon where “nobody mentions our president’s name because â??he’ is so very gross.” Just as Russian President Vladimir Putin called Donald Trump “gross” in a recent Russian television interview, so too has Megyn Kelly and other media taking aim at a president who continues to wage war against America’s Freedom of the Press and Free Speech. While “gross” may be an understatement when it comes to Trump’s lewd words and acts over his 71 years on Earth, it is Trump’s evil plan to “deconstruct” American values and create daily chaos that “is also gross,” says Sally Doyle, a political science senior at the University of Oregon in Eugene. According to Doyle’s research, the recent New York Times “changed how the world thinks about Donald Trump because Trump’s tweets shows that he lies like a rug.” It was on June 25, 2017 that the famed New York Times “had the balls to feature a full page to print what it called â??Trump’s lies.’ I think the Times made it easy for students of political science like me because it presents a strong thesis or argument that America should never consider someone who has never, ever, served his country or community, as is the case with Trump’s life history over his 71 years. Trump’s lies remind us that we must never choose a president who is not qualified mentally, emotionally, morally or spiritually to lead the Free World.” Thus, this special new journalism report asks “where’s the outrage” when it comes to Donald Trump being dishonest and outright lying to the citizenry during each and every day, as of June 27, 2017. While many Americans turned a blind-eye to the lies of Donald Trump, this veteran print newspaper reporter, who has spent 40 years wearing out shoe leather to report real news, is outraged that America has become accustomed to this â??fake president’s lies.’ In turn, this reporter asks all Americans to pray for our country as Trump takes the nation deep into this dark place where nobody seems happy or content. Thus, the aim of this collection of new journalism reports and essays is to present a thesis or argument from local Oregon coast seniors who think Donald Trump is gross.
