Why is there a need within the human society isolate vulnerable people and psychologically torture them?
Survival of the fittest, pecking order, food chain, whatever you want to call it. It's natural. BTW, I guess this question was too cryptic for me to figure out who the figurative 'whipping child' is. Care to enlighten me?
On a side note, if you don't like seeing the whipping, then stand up for the group that is being treated poorly. There is so much that is revealed when you see someone dealing with a crisis, or tragic event. If you are recognizing the whipping, then do what you can to stop it. Not necessarily by whipping back, but a better way might be to find some common ground between the two 'groups' so that they might see that they aren't so different.

aawwww...someone took a freshman psych class. It's very simple. You if you think the vulnerable should be handed everything on a silver platter you PROBABLY believe that people who think the "isolated vulnerable" should have to put more effort into getting ahead are "whipping" them. It is ok to have a different point of view without it being a complicated social issue.
