Re: Who's the victim? The Teacher or The Student?
Nobody should feel as a victim here, I guess. However, children do need a guide. They need someone to teach them or at least show them what is wrong and what is right(meaning, what is good and what is bad for life in society, before any hippie comes and says that it's relative).

Humans want more than survival. They want control. They want what is good for them, no matter the future consequences. They want what they think to be true, and anybody who enters their way will be destroyed.
Another thing is, our culture, not only our culture, but our nature seems to make us want to take control of everything in the way we think is better. Basically, even though humans have intelligence and knowledge, they can only think of what is good for themselves, ignoring every possible negative consequences for others or for the future.
Our nature is also related to war. It seems that most humans alwyas want to fight everything or everyone "in their way", everyone that doesn't agree or accept the way they do things.
Humans can't face different opinions, thoughts, ideas or behaviors. Whenever facing differences, humans will try to impose their ideas, their characteristics. If they're unable to do that, they'll try to eliminate the source of the difference. So, fights, wars, killing. In smaller scales, segregation and disrespect. It's also part of our nature.
This ius what we are. So yes, our nature is flawed.
