Regarding bullying and bystanders, what is the morally correct way to deal with being confronted by a bully? What if you were a bystander? Of course most situations are circumstantial, so perhaps you were much smaller than the bully as the bully or victim. What would be the ethical decision if you, as the bystander, would also be attacked if you interjected. And finally, if the victim threw the first punch, are they in the wrong? I would also like to know if modern philosophy has contrasting views with the ideals or philosophers like Aristotle, Plato, Kant, or Levinas.
