Men have a tendency to become angry and then attack someone who is not like them.

The fact that man crucified Jesus, who was not angry but was different from them, illustrates this belief.

Men also tend to be jealous of a man who is wiser or more successful than they are.

Consequently, they may attack a man with those qualities due to their jealousy.
