It is traumatic to watch others being abused.
You’re describing group trauma and societal trauma.
This stuff is resolved at the individual level and at the collective level. Effective psychotherapy, parenting, and leadership are critical. Self-awareness and compassion are critical. Everything that is done is done by individuals forming a collective.
Punishment is not the solution. It’s just another form of traumatic acting-out. Punishment is unnecessary and only makes things worse.
I love that I get to counter your assertions.
