No. Stop right there.
If you have a system set up by wolves that overwhelmingly benefits wolves and, furthermore, does so by exploiting the sheep, you cannot blame the sheep. The sheep are the victims. The blame lies solely with the wolves.
You do not birth someone into a unconscionably unequal environment and then blame them for not being strong enough to revolt against their oppressors. The blame lies always with the oppressor, never with the victim.

#Nationalism [19th century] "is founded on treating #knowledge not as something that should be shared, as a basis for some kind of consensus through publishing, through contributing knowledge to the common good. Knowledge starts to be treated as some kind of #commodity…
Capitalism in a nutshell:
1. Invest all money in businesses that exploit natural resources (the environment/people) in an unquenchable, shortsighted & illogical thirst for perpetual growth within a closed system.
2. When ramifications become visible, blame the people forced to patronise those businesses due to lack of alternatives for being irresponsible in their personal consumption choices.
Rinse and repeat until we all die because we’ve destroyed our habitat.
So, how’s your week going? :)
