In Our Culture: We Create Victims

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Written by Gary Wonning

In our culture, we create victims.

By looking at someone as a victim, It makes  us feel good to be able to help someone who is downtrodden and oppressed.

By feeling as though we are victims, it gives us an excuse for acting and behaving the way we do without taking responsibility for our actions.  It is easier to blame someone else and remove all responsibility. 

After all, it is always someone else’s vault.

Many of our politicians keep getting elected over and over again by continuously blaming someone else for their actions, and by creating victims by teaching them to rely on government to be their savior by continuously telling people that government is the one who can solve all your problems and give you the life you deserve, when the truth is, the government is the main cause of most of our problems.

When humans are left to solving their problems, using their own God given free will and initiative they are quite capable of solving any issue that may come before them .

All the government needs to do is just get out of the way.

Liberalism only survives by creating victims, promising to give you the things you need, in order to further the cause of victim hood.

To further their cause and increase the size of government, they  need to take up the the fig leaf of victim hood. The liberals need to create more victims to depend on “free” handouts. 

Conservatives believe that every one is in charge of their lives and can do what they want as long as it doesn’t infringe on the rights of others.

They just go on and live life staying out of others peoples business and go on to create a better life for ourselves.

Mind your own business, do what is morally and ethically right, and if you become wealthy you make others wealthy too.

When ever I got into a jam, my dad would always say, ” You were smart enough to get into this mess, I’m sure you are smart enough to get yourself out of it.”

He would then turn and go home, saying, “I’ll be there if you really need me.”

In other words, he was telling me it was my karma and I was the only one who could fix it.

No one else can fight your battles, when you finally learn that, your battles will vanish.

As long as we try to sidestep those issues that keep springing up in our lives, they will continue to plague us.

Many times, we do others the biggest injustice by helping them, they will never grow past their issues until they stand on their own two feet and get to the root of their problems.

Gary has been a writer/photographer for over thirty years. Specializing in nature and landscape photography, while studying native cultures.

His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.

He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of

Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

He has published several books about his adventures, and is available for book signings, and speaking engagements.
