We have turned into a society that blames whatever they can, there has to be a reason and someone or something must be held accountable for whatever is wrong. Suing for no reason, other than for the money, society and environments causing people to snap (this may be true due to the lives that we lead), trying to find an answer and point the blame for everything. Blaming is a counter-productive and addictive habit, that is depressingly bad for the character.
We have been brought up to associate competition with freedom, unfortunately in this only the strong (rich) survive. Back to the “in this day and age” comment, isn't it all the same old shit, isn't it just what Darwin said, but it's not even the strong, we have eliminated that, it is now the rich.
What I don't get is that we have all these laws to protect every different type of society, but we don't have for humanity. Societies grow thinking that they are better than other societies, they alienate the others, even not intentionally and can even be perceived as bigots.
Truth is that is the great blame-game that has been created, we have no one to blame but ourselves, for letting this get out of hand, for accepting, for not questioning and for not acting on behalf of humanity and our planet.
