I was bullied without mercy at home by an older sister.
I credit her with giving me the ability to deal with bullies at school.
She was so bad at home - that I would actually laugh at anyone that tried it at school.
I wonder whether there’s any relationship between having somehow successfully resolved incidents like this during childhood, and conservatism as an adult.
Or more precisely, a relationship between a childhood in which such incidents were (not) dealt with, and liberalism later, seeking to lord over others - in revenge.
