Not a Force of Nature

When examining or commenting on one of the countless instances of an individual being mobbed on the internet, the focus is only ever on what that individual did or said that the mob has latched on to. It is always the case, always, that most people will refer to a mob as though it is a force of nature, a natural response to whatever it is the mob is reacting to. Now whilst it is certainly true that one can rely on the predictability of mob outrage occurring, it is a surface-level, ignorant mistake to stop at this basic bitch point of analysis. A mob consists of individuals, making autonomous decisions, not this ephemeral THING, the responsibility for which lies with the target of the mob. I can't remember seeing anyone shine the light on the people who join the mobs and participate in the abuse, on what qualities a person possesses that lead to them deciding to take part in the first place.

The majority of people possess a conscience, an inner voice that influences our behaviour. Even as young children most of us do not seek for targets to abuse, though when children are in pain and misery we mistakenly vent the pain and darkness inside ourselves at someone else. This is understandable at such an age. Now picture an adult, we'll call them Jiffy, who sees someone else online say, draw, otherwise expresses themselves in a way that that Jiffy doesn't like. In fact, Jiffy finds it to be disgusting and offensive. Jiffy decides to send a message to that person, a very abusive message intended to make them feel like shit, intended to hurt them emotionally. What kind of person is Jiffy?

It takes a very bitter, pathetic soul to take the leap from witnessing something offensive to going out of their way to verbally abuse, even lie about and slander, another person. But that's not all. No, they're also doing it while completely protected from consequences, not just because they are nowhere near their target, protected by the internet, but because they also see plenty of other people doing the same thing. So they can't even do a cowardly thing online on their own. These are pathetic, weak, bitter and resentful people who despise the achievement of others. That could be actually sympathetic, since we can all understand how someone in pain could feel anger, or what it's like to feel weak. However, these degenerate drecks actually try to derive some small moment of pleasure from hurting someone else and making them feel terrible. Even this isn't enough, being a revolting little coward deriving pleasure from abusing others, oh no; we need one more layer of unbelievable shite.

They pretend they're the people who are most compassionate.

Fuck politics, fuck tribes and sides. This has always been about individuals, about whether or not YOU choose to be a sack of shit and add more pain into the world than what it would have without you being in it.

those are the fun ones to see in person because they are all brave behind a keyboard but shut up really fast when you are standing right in front of them.

About time that I see I'm not the only person on earth that drew the same conclusions as you when comes to internet tough guys.

They're not a force of nature, nor are they a force to be reckoned with. The best way to handle them is to troll the trolls. Find out whatever got them so angry and keep giving them more of it. Then you can revel in their self-righteous, impotent rage.

Well actually the best way to deal with them is to ignore them, trolls are seeking the attention their mothers never gave them, and attention is attention to them weather its hate, empathy or fighting back. This is why people who talk back or react badly to what they do are their favorite targets, hard to hate them once you see them for what they really are, under-accomplished school drop-outs still living with their parents taking their anger out on the internet where no harm can come back to them, no need to tell them that though they already know C:

Thanks for the reply. :)

Ignoring them is another way of dealing with them. But what i meant was, let's say you drew a picture that got you a mob of haters. You could simply ignore them until they lose interest. Or you could draw more similar pictures out of spite, simply to make your haters even angrier and more frustrated. In other words you're feeding off of their rage and letting their hate encourage you. You're attitude towards them is "i'm glad you're so offended. I like making you angry. I'm going to keep doing it over and over again."

Maybe i'm just particularly spiteful. But that's what i'd do alright. XD

Yeah that's something i'd actually do when I was a young adult lol. Problem is though some people take things like that way too personally and very often don't know when to quit attacking the victim (Or feel they can get away with doing something terrible to them) Most artists do what they do because they themselves want to do it, not as a way of getting back at someone. Very often though its simply not worth dealing with the haters but there are times we MUST however but in cases like that its probably in the polices hands. The whole drama game is one NPDs and personality disordered types love playing and their victims are usually the types that feel obligated to try to teach them better or fight back against them. Best thing to do is ignore those who hate you and focus and cherish those who love you, they're the important ones. No-one on earth is liked by everyone nor hated by everyone either

Fun fact, because they lack the mental ability to rationalize decisions, babies have a perfectly consistent sense of morality. That being anything that hurts them is bad and anything that benefits them is good.

Indeed, though they lack an awareness of other people, other minds around them, thinking only of themselves. Even that is abstract, because they lack language to even think with. So they just feel and react XP. Kinda like twats on the internet XP.
