    "hierarchy structure" and "innate social reactions"? Aren't innate social reactions the source of childrens' tendencies to form "hierarchy structure" -- i.e., pecking order? And how does one even think about "innate social reactions" in cats in the way that interactionist sociologists would, since cats don't seem to be easily able to apply "labeling".

    No matter how you slice it or term it, bullying happens in almost all cultures; it appears to take attention, training, and intervention to teach children why they should not do it, and to make it plain that attempts to continue bullying anyway will be met with corrective action. Plenty of individual children get it, but group dynamics is another thing entirely, the motivations and methods change with age, etc. Upshot: this is not a job for Republicans.

    YES WE DID -- AGAIN. FOUR MORE YEARS.
