How to live a blameless life

January.27. 2019

Living a blameless life is not difficult: there’s an easy way to do it. Just shift the blame to someone else.

(There’s actually another definition of the blameless life, but we’ll leave that definition to the self-righteous Sunday school crowd. For our purposes, a blameless life simply means you are free from all blame.)

Why take the blame when someone else can take it for you?

The blameless philosophy to life has spawned a whole industry of blame police and ambulance chasers, people who make their living blaming others for your problems.

The basic premise is simple.

You take absolutely no responsibility for your actions.

Everything that happens to you happens because of someone else’s fault.

The blameless approach to life has actually become the basis for an entire culture and religion.

In this culture, if you were to get into a cab, and the cab driver had an accident, he could sue you because if you hadn’t gotten into his cab in the first place, the accident would’ve never occurred.

In this culture and religion, whatever problems they have is always someone else’s fault.

For example, they look at their abject surroundings and they blame foreign aggression, or they blame another culture for their woes.

The fact that they’re incapable of governing themselves, or their propensity to saddle themselves with corrupt dictators, or their disregard for the values of hard work and sacrifice, and instead waste their time indulging in perversions and nonsensical beliefs.

No, none of this has anything to do with the miserable lives they have created for themselves.

You look at the world today and you see one group of people getting on with their lives and trying to build something of value every day.

And then you see another group intent on destroying everything the first group is building, simply because they have a “genuine grudge” against them. (Why? Because they blame the first group for all their problems.)

Just some random thoughts on a beautiful Sunday morning.
