Our society has an endless capacity for blaming victims.
If anything goes wrong in a person's life it is said to be their own fault.
This is very convenient for most people because it means that you don't have to help.
Hippies and Baby-Boomers are victims of drugs and Satanism in rock music.
Gay men are victims of AIDS.
Refugees are victims of war and persecution.
Poor people are victims of economic oppression.
But we are led to believe that they somehow caused these things themselves.
Open your eyes and open your hearts!
It is the only way.
