Civilized society looks in horror at many of the terrible deeds of the past, like torture and lynchings. At the time though, it was fairly well accepted - even if people suspected that it wasn’t the most civilized way to behave.
I wonder how bullies will feel 20 years from now. I’m talking about those kids who break down a classmate’s self-esteem to the point of depression and possibly suicide. I’m talking about the kids who know what they’re doing - and are proud of it. What will they think of themselves in 20 years when, hopefully, we’ll look at such behavior as simply barbarous.
Will they hate themselves for what they did? Will they try to repress it? Will they work to help others as a form of restitution? Or might they just not give a damn?
Injustice like that really upsets me.
