this is another illustration of the need to control and direct anger in a positive way.

See how angry we become at the sadistic person who caused the pain of those we would defend. Many of us want done to him what he has done to others.

The sadists who enjoy giving pain to another are an angry people. They are full of pain, most often with horribly abusive childhoods. They become the givers of pain.

The activists who are trying to "stop the pain" of others also have pain. Who doesn't? But we direct our anger to "stop the suffering" not only for ourselves but for all who suffer. We refuse to become like those
who abused us. We are defenders of those who cannot defend themselves.

I dream of the day when the sadistic people will be recognized early before they continue the pain giving it to others and increasing their own negative karma. Identify them early and help them to heal from their own pain and, themselves, become activists.

In the situation of a child being abused, the child's mind recognizes that the abuser is the powerful one who can dominate and hurt. The gentleness of most abused children brings pain to these children of nightmare. We, as adults who can reason on an adult level, realize this is illusion. Yet it is a powerful illusion. And it perpetuates sadism.

Karma and physical punishment don't work. They simply keeps the cycle going.

I have made my comments on IOL (our news channel) and it is sickening to note that very few people took a stand against the savage cruelty inflicted upon this poor animal. What monsters do we have on this earth!!!
