Humans have made laws to protect the bully from me, but there are no laws to protect me from their smartass, their aggression, their threats, and their habit of endangering MY life on the roads and freeways. I’ve been lectured by cops more times than I care to think about, their main spiel, in their threatening tone, being “You cannot take the law into your own hands, it’s OUR job to take care of this or that!!!”.
I’ve been in this life for more than five decades, and I’ve seen a few things. One of my observations is that the bullying types almost always aspire to positions of power. Not only do they use their positions for their own self serving B.S., and their violating of other people, but they will defend their kind – hence the laws that protect the lowlifes of the world – especially the high priced ones who cause damage on large scale. It’s not exclusive there, though, their laws also protect the small time punks, eg: Laws against “assault” that punish an innocent person for defending himself, laws against shooting an intruder in a person’s own home, and much more.
I’ve never been much for people, never much liked them, I mostly try to avoid them the best I could. I have one person in my life that it appears I can call a true friend. Every other person I’ve spent any amount of time around, showed that he or she had the “It all comes down to money” attitude, most were envious – of god knows what, most wanted control, and most wanted something for themselves. It’s been said that perception is reality – well, that seems real enough to me. If someday, somebody comes along and proves me wrong on all this, then great, but it’s gonna be awfully hard to argue with 50+ years of firsthand experience. I’m with Leroy Jethro Gibbs, who said, “You always look for the good in people, there, there’s not much to find”.
