Is it deserved? Blaming the victims comes in many flavors. Who’s to say the Grand Old Party won’t return, if the voters just keep the faith?
Besides, it’s not nice to blame the victims. The brain, especially one that is intact, requires a lot of energy to function. So, when there’s poor nutrition, chronic illness and back-breaking labor, there’s not a lot of energy left for cognition. Might as well blame the cows in their stanchions for being lazy and fat. Fat or skinny, people are being exploited by the elites.
Throws a whole ‘nother light on the Bertolt Brecht saying “erst kommt das Fressen, dann kommt die Moral.” Morals and culture are presumed beneficial, but for whom? When we consider that “cultivation” involves cutting away natural growth to force more reproductive effort, being cultivated is perhaps not the boon we perceive.
