It’s always somebody else’s fault

Hitler unified a war ravaged country by blaming the Jews for his country’s problems.  Mugabe maintains his rule of terror by blaming the whites.   Arizona’s Governor Brewer milks local public opinion by discriminating against Mexicans.  Even the president of the USA blames the evil banks and appears ready to file criminal charges against Goldman Sachs. 


And we don’t have to stop at Hitler, all through history somebody, some race or some entity has been to blame for the ills of the world.  The ancients had the best plan – they blamed their problems on the fickle whims of their Gods.  The common theme is that it’s never our fault.
