Whenever there is a crisis or a tragedy, the blame game gets started. The conservatives blame the liberals and the liberals blame the conservatives. The moderates blame the extremists and the extremists blame the moderates. The pro-gun-control crowd blame the anti-gun-control crowd and the anti-gun-control crowd blames the pro-gun-control crowd. The blame game just keeps going around and around.
It’s easier to play the blame game than it is to actually study the problem at an in-depth level. It’s easier to play the blame game than to admit you may be wrong about a problem or that you really didn’t understand the entire problem. It’s easier to play the blame game than it is to find actual solutions to the problem.
The blame game is easy to play and it makes people feel like they have all the answers. The problem is not their fault.
However, that solves nothing. Getting your hands dirty and working to solve the problem, regardless of who is to blame, is the only way to make things better.
