Thanks for the article
I'd like to highlight this paragraph specially

"Humans typically do things to get pleasure or avoid pain. For most of us, hurting others causes us to feel their pain. And we don’t like this feeling. This suggests two reasons people may harm the harmless – either they don’t feel the others’ pain or they enjoy feeling the others’ pain"

imxo the main factor in the development of cruelty is the wrong, rigidly abusive child's upbringing.
As a psychologist, I have seen many troubled children with troubled families and inadequate parents :(

One hundred percent. Upbringing is so critical

I only meant that the cat knows - or discovers - that we can toss it out a window at any time = "authority". Dogs accept that notion more quickly - not as willing to test it. O:) - obsrvr524
