The Bullies' Predatory Footprint

Terri Ryan (Author)


Like sharks safe in the dark fathoms of the sea to prey on targets, the Bullies' Predatory Footprint looks at the vast, opportunistic, cruel, and predatory behaviour of bullying that is exercised to repress and maintain an ascendancy of dominance, power, and control over others. Harrying many young and vulnerable people to suicide, the clarion cry from communities, families, and friends touched and disabled by its impact is reduced to little more than a humanitarian reflex when social, economic, and cultural changes are not followed up by legitimised actions. Contradictions at the core of moral and democratic values are made evident as the cumulative imprint of hostile and cruel behaviour casts a long shadow on civil society. In thirty years time, unanswerable questions to posterity and a lack of human response may seem perplexing to a new generation of people born into an inherited form of entrapment.
