We have a tendency to blame others or circumstances, both for outside events and for what effects us directly. This “blaming mind” has been around forever and is very deep rooted. Modern social media seems to even strengthen this innate tendency.

Ah how shameless – the way these mortals blame the gods.

From us alone they say come all their miseries yes but they themselves with their own reckless ways compound their pains beyond their proper share.

Homer The Odyssey 1.37-40
