Lack of empathy, and sometimes an lack of understanding.

I think it makes some people feel powerful to disempower others.

Welcome to pc. Good question and some interesting answers. I often ask myself the same question. Why are some people so mean...

I also think it makes some people feel powerful if they ''succeed'' in disempowering others.

Yes, many things, many reasons. And let's not forget the case of the person who, through whatever causes, has been born with a sadism in his soul - a sadism in his mind. He enjoys - get's a thrill! - from seeing another person in pain, and, so, for the purposes of self pleasure [if you will] sets out to cause hurt to others. This is an evil if the recipient of said pain is unconsenting[!]
