Whenever a system is flawed, it turns to individual blame; it never questions or challenges its inherent assumptions and turns its failure into a personal cause.
A favorite tactic of conservative elected politics, blame is now applied beyond politics to any individual (its tantamount to being a traitor!) who dissents from the orthodoxy of conservative canons which see personal freedom as democratic pillar–and a prime source of wealth and taking for the rich and corporations whose power outweighs the illusion of freedom offered by the canons. Note, too, that blame fuels hate and anger, two other sources of GOP deflection.
