Scapegoating

The evils of finger-pointing run so much broader and deeper than… and are more consequential than… the childish avoidance of responsibility…

Blaming others for one’s lack of success commits not just a transgression against others, but a transgressions against oneself…

… a justification of victimhood.

… a glorification of impotence.

… a denial of one’s dishonesty, hostility, and bigotry.

… a celebration of one’s failure to become fully human.
