on Never Again
Thoughout history we have focused on the effects to the victums of genocide, the Holocaust, rape, bullying, terrorism, etc - and yet it keeps happening.
I would like to suggest that we start shining the light on the pathology behind the crimes as well as the effect on the victims.
In recent history we began to identify rape, not as an act of passion, but one of hate. This has put the focus on the pathology and there has been a change in the reaction to this crime.
The same has begun to happen with school bullying. By focusing on the pathology of the perpitrators exposed the roots, and gives the community/other students a proactive roll in helping to prevent.
