Bullying "out of hand"

Marcus wrote, "Obviously fights can get out of hand, just as bullying can..." From a libertarian perspective, bullying is inherently out of hand--definitions of bully including "to treat abusively" and "to affect by means of force or coercion." As the protagonist of The Big Lebowski would say, "This aggression will not stand, man!" That's as politely as I can put it.
