People speak about bullying like it is something new. It has always been present and will go on forever .
Because we are human beings, we are pat of the animal kingdom, as a result, we humans as well as all other members of the animal kingdom have a pecking order.People complained about bullying when I was in school and that was over sixty years ago.
In other words, we all, on an individual choice, determine where we belong on the hierarchy of human interaction, or how we inter-react with each other.
They say bullying is worse now, but so is global warming, or so they say.
The only one who can put an end to victim hood is the victim. The parents, teachers, etc, can and should make an effort to create a safe environment for all of us, but, they can only do so much.
Our teachers, parents, ministers, etc, can only do so much, they can’t be there all the time protecting us, in the final analysis, it is up to the individual to find a solution.
It doesn’t always mean a physical solution, many times the conflict can be solved more diplomatically. The bully just has a basic human need that isn’t being filled in his life, or he feels jealous of what someone else has .
Many times it is a self image issue, whatever the cause, regardless of how much we try to understand, there is only so much we can do.
His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.
He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of
Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.
He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.
In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.
For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.
He has published several books about his adventures.
