Regardless, This Isn’t Helping Anything

May 18, 2020

I’m honestly not sure if this counts as cynicism or not, but recently I’ve come to understand just how deeply some people need “a bad guy” to blame things on.  I mean, I’ve always understood how easy it can be to give in to the temptation to blame someone or something else for your problems, but what I’m seeing lately is taking things to a whole new level.  In the absence of a clear “bad guy,” people are desperately flailing about trying to find one, frequently changing targets at a dizzying pace, and I think their fear is if they don’t find one, they’ll be the ones that someone else will pick to be the “bad guy.”
