Pointing the finger – An epiphany

There is a sad tradition in America of blaming the powerless for the machinations of the well heeled and influential who have had a hand in creating said conditions that impact the whole.

If you listen quietly… You can hear a chorus of chuckling because the joke is on those pointing the finger in the wrong direction.

Such as:

Blaming the poor for being poor.
Blaming the undereducated for being ignorant.
Blaming the hungry for being malnourished.

But at the very least we can say one thing for certain; at least we’re consistent.
