Blame Game Solves Nothing

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.

  1. You hit the nail right on the head! We have a recurring national discussion about one of our holidays, and the pro-holiday people keep blaming the anti-holiday people and vice versa, but nobody focuses on the actual issue, let alone tries to solve it.

  2. Very true and it seems to have gotten worse since the election. I do believe part of the problem is the abundance of information out there, much of which is false. It is hard to find reliable, unbiased sources of information.
