does our society idealise bullying?

    Although we claim to hate bullies our society really seems to praise them. Most reality TV shows are basically televised bullying and Trump as well as most Brexit politicians were popular because of how they bullied their opponents. Whenever someone tries to be the nice guy they get completely **** over for being boring and weak (see Jeb bush and Jeremy Corbyn), while everyone seems to talk about how the person bullying them is a legend and alpha male. Everyone's favourite part on the apprentice is when Lord sugar insults all the candidates, the same can be said for Jeremy Kyle who purposefully humiliates his guests for the lols. It seems to me that our society absolutely loves bullying no matter how much people pretend to be against it.

    Yeah. Being mean is now a trend to say the very least

    Verbal bullying ceases to be "bullying" when you've matured, and it becomes merely a childish form of argument.

    Yeah, hence the reason why all the people with crappy personalities are still popular.
