It always is isn't it?
Just read some of the recent threads and you get a wonderful psychological look into the complete lack of personal responsibility that infects our
world. Blame blame blame, always blame someone else and jump on whatever band wagon is waving the highest flag at the time.
Stupid Cops arresting those innocent people. So what if they had dope, so what if they fought the police, so what if they just killed their spouse,the
police are suppose to be kind and gentile, no matter the person was trying to kick his head in. Can't be there fault, has to be someone else's.
I'm Black and I'm poor. Not because I spent my entire Junior and Senior year on the Corner with my "boys", NO, because my ancestors were slaves.
Not because I wont keep a job and have 7 children with 4 women, nope, it has to be....
Someone Else's Fault
I'm homeless with no money. So what if I spent my mortgage money on new pants and a new car, the only reason I wasn't working was because the only
job I am suited for is CEO of IBM, but they never called. Now the Government wont build me another home to run down.... Can't be me, must be....
Someone Else's Fault
Even with the advanced intellect one comes to expect here on ATS, the number of threads and replies that fit into this category is astounding. Just
when you begin to think that someone has finally grown up and accepted their ridiculous attitude for what it truly is, there they go and post another
flaming pile of rhetoric, unsubstantiated and with no intellectual merit.
This happens time and time again, and causes one to speculate upon the closed mind and it's apparent inability to learn basic conceptual principles.
Don't get me wrong, they are entertaining, much like a train wreck without the tragedy, one can watch and laugh without guilt. However the student of
psychology can only be saddened by the obvious continuance of this destructive behavior.
Perhaps it is the lack of "effective" formal education. Not just school, any moron can claim they go to school and many a moron has attended the
required classes; I speak of effective formal education here. The type of education that teaches one the value of an open mind and eliminates
preconceptions and reduces the instances of psychological prejudices. This education requires of the student a level of commitment one does not easily
find in those that refuse to accept responsibility for their own actions. Thereby the "catch 22" falls into place. Those that would benefit the most
from this enlightenment, are the ones least likely to obtain it. Why? Because the way they are can't be their fault.. Nope...
Must be Someone Else's Fault...
