BULLYING IS NOT A JOKE

This society is becoming increasingly violent because the message that passes is that only if you're smart, if you're arrogant, you win. And so the one who bullies gets things done while the others play by the rules and are forgotten. Mass media and movies pass a message of struggle, fighting, aggression, violence and violence. How many movies have you seen that didn't include fights? Superheroes always fight, physically. So the message that gets through is that bad guys can only be defeated with more violence. But victims of bullying don't ask for help, they don't fight back, they don't tell anyone. At school everyone knows and everyone is silent. Bullying at school still exists and the right methods have not yet been used to fight and defeat it. Bullying has been talked about for years but neither adults nor children still know how to defeat this scourge.
There is a new trend that is taking hold in social media and that is to channel all the hype about violence, bullying and "entertainment". People who insult each other online, threaten each other, slaps that fly, "fans" who just for a little visibility go to offend or even worse attack the live streamers.
There is a basic problem in all of this: the streamers themselves are the perpetrators, not just the victims.
Having the power to communicate, unite the masses, be followed by thousands of people is not something to take lightly because you want or don't want those who follow you to emulate what you do. Saying "it's not my fault that dude does this or that" I just do "entertainment" is like throwing the rock and hiding your hand, behaving like the worst politician. What scares me is that violence, sexism and racism are defined as "joke".
There's no need to elect yourself as champions of justice when instead of raising awareness and educating those who follow you, you only give vent to a show full of violence and devoid of civic education. Because when you blare the cash register on the bus and you insult, curse, threaten those around you just because someone RIGHTLY feels annoyed by an insult or an orgasm in the cash register, how can you expect to be "entertaining"? What message do you give to young people? What makes you feel so powerful that you think all of this is right because you are "working"?
Because we are in a world where education is obviously being badly outclassed by "I do what I want, when I want, because I'm free to."
Does being free mean being able to say what you want or does it mean being able to feel safe wherever you go without someone insulting, hitting or disrespecting my time and space?
