When something goes wrong, we want to understand the reason why. Defaulting to a rational approach is how we avoid connecting to our emotions. The ‘blame culture’ is based on the assumption that there’s always someone at fault for every issue. People are quick to judge others and create a ‘rational’ explanation. Thus, avoiding responsibility or accepting that, some events, are out of their control.
Life is neither fair nor unfair; life just is, as I explained here. We have a broken idea of fairness. We cannot take that things go wrong. Rather than accepting that something bad happened to us, we opt to blame others. Instead of us being at fault, we make others take the blame.
