In the United States, normal average citizens perpetuate the childish, ignorant and deceptive behavior of Reactionary Blame.
When some act of injustice is secondarily viewed by the public or in a news related media, blame is demanded. Historically when a crime was committed, authorities would choose a person (scapegoat) to assign the blame and punishment. The predictable reactions of the public are used and manipulated for other purposes as in propaganda for political gains. The abuse of news media to manipulate the public's reaction is common in the U.S.. The utilization of such media is a strategy to keep the reactionary public's favor to gain wealth.,
The Creation of diversion tactics is seen in the ten billion dollar annual adoption industry to set the blame far from the offending organization. The bad guy is publicly detested while the industry is free to exploit, abuse the system and traffic children without regard for the fact that they are human children. The industry grows as entire generations of children are used to satisfy the temporary whims of hungry consumer.
The Psychology Of Blame
Blame is the act of censuring, holding responsible, making negative statements about an individual or group that their action or actions are socially or morally irresponsible, the opposite of praise. When someone is morally responsible for doing something wrong their action is blameworthy. By contrast, when someone is morally responsible for doing something right, we may say that his or her action is praiseworthy. There are other senses of praise and blame that are not ethically relevant. One may praise someone's good dress sense, and blame the weather for a crop failure.
We constantly consciously and unconsciously make judgments about other people. Our basis for judging others may be partly ingrained, negative and rigid indicating some degree of grandiosity or arrogance.
- behavioral self-blame – undeserved blame based on actions. Victims who experience behavioral self-blame feel that they should have done something differently, and therefore feel at fault.
- characterological self-blame – undeserved blame based on character. Victims who experience characterological self-blame feel there is something inherently wrong with them which has caused them to deserve to be assaulted.
