Perhaps if we look at it more as "The Right To Blame" it makes more sense?
Throughout history the population has been told "it's their fault", "look what they have done/caused" or just "you can never trust ....". The current climate is just the same - a blame culture and seeing yourself as the victim. Do not misunderstand me, there are genuine victims of happenstance (particularly currently because of CV 19) who need helping but I believe there are many, many more who see themselves as victims than there are actual victims.
I am clear that I find myself where I am because of the decisions I have made, the choices and risks I have taken or not taken. In short, my life is my fault and I must live with it and make the best of it because it is, for the most part, the consequence of my actions. I repeat the caveat that, sometimes things happen to you which are beyond your control - but that's not a whole life thing. Nonetheless, I feel some guilt at the a sense of Schadenfreude discussing this.
