One of the bedrock principles of Judeo/Christianity is that individuals are responsible for their actions. This is mostly presented in terms of sinning with respect to what people do and do not do. The lesson is that one must look within if one is to improve. Undoubtedly, people taking this to heart has been a key reason for success of the Western World.
On the other hand, there does seem to be a propensity for people to blame other entities when the situation turns sour. I noticed this in myself when I was a child engaging in athletics. When I made a good play, I attributed it to my skill. When I made a bad play, well, it was bad luck. I quickly outgrew this notion; for if one is to become a better player, then honest analysis is important.
Of course, people everywhere have this notion to blame other entities. It takes a special effort not to do so. Everywhere, this effort is falling to the wayside. The modern secular/liberal cadre is especially prone to this. As are the victim classes that they promote.
For if one adopts a victim mentality, then life in many ways just became easier. One is absolved of responsibility. One can just wallow in the mire. In the olden days, this was a bit more difficult, as there was not government support to keep you alive if you did so. But that problem is solved, so people can now easily join this class. These are the hidden professional victims (the non-Sarkeesians, the non-Wests, the non-Quinns).
Naturally enough, Feminism was a pioneer in this field. Women can play the sympathetic victim if they try. And they did. Others preferred the ball-breaking righteous attitude. It was a good high-low mix and worked well. The previous post about the magazine writers illustrate this. They cast themselves as sympathetic damsels in distress and empowered ball breakers at the same time. Two awesome people in one. This is progress. Anyway, it just isn’t working like it used to, and they are doubling down.
So what is the cure? Well, the situation will cure itself one way or another eventually. The silliness, wasted productivity and wasted resources will end. It is unsustainable. People will need to take more individual responsibility one way or another.
