    You express your personal journey about bullying so well and quite rightly it can take many different forms. Bullies thrive on getting people angry. If you meet them with kindness it helps to defuse their assault. I had a colleague at work who liked to bulldoze his way through meetings. Asking reasoned and pointed questions helped everyone focus on the issues. I enjoy your thoughtful posts.

    Thanks, Paul for pointing out that kindness actually makes the bully less powerful. I can imagine that many of your colleagues are appreciative of your approach to bullying during meetings.

    Philip Zimbardo talks about bullies and evil in a great post on TED blog

    I believe that bullies are most of the time people that choose fear over love. “It is much more secure to be feared than to be loved.” - Niccolo Machiavelli. I wrote a little something about this subject on my blog:

    Thanks for your thoughtful comments and references, Octav. Agree that bullies choose fear over love. To be loved and to love requires vulnerability, which can be difficult for many. I can see why some choose to be feared instead. It's a perfect mask.

    I also love this quote from the TED blog that you reference:

    "[B]ullies may be the perpetrators of evil but it is the evil of passivity of all those who know what is happening and never intervene that perpetuates such abuse." We all have a responsibility to stop bullying when we see it.
