Blame

My former roomie and I had a long wonderful chat this evening. We talked about people and we solved all the world's problems in about an hour and a half. Interestingly enough, I found this article on Victor Davis Hanson's website just after our long discussion. It addresses some of the things that we were talking about. Namely, people's selfishness and willingness to blame others rather than take responsibility. The article concerns the aftermath of Katrina. But it says so much more than that. Victor Hanson never fails to bring some universal principle or theme into his writing.

I just wrote a post on blame!

Blame brings us comfort by making ourselves superior and shielded from responsibility. Whether on God, the sinners against whom he takes revenge, or the President, we feel more comfortable when blaming others for such disasters as these.
