    are we becoming so lazy and weak that instead of facing and defeating our problems, we blame others and expect others to fix our problems.

    In this falling world of ours well most of my classmates act that way.. . and since they're not a part of the solution, it's too clear that they're part of the problem that I wanted to eradicate wink

    Yes, I think you are correct; there's a pill for every problem, and the media pushes mediocrity and the glamorization of materialism.  The end result is what you are seeing with your observation/question.

    I don't think the amount of people who blame others for their problems is higher now than it ever was. I think it's always been that way because it's way easier to push blame elsewhere than to look within and acknowledge one's own responsibility on their problems.

    If one acknowledged that they have any responsibility in their own problems, that would mean they have a hand at finding a solution, and that's just too much damn work, so better blame someone else! HA

    I think it is a natural human trait.  We may see more people using it than ever before because it is so much easier to play the victim than it is to accept responsibility for your own lack and discipline and stupidity.  Certainly, some people are victims, but far too often once the facts of a story come out, some of those claiming to be victims are simply creatures of their own demise.  Sadly, many of them never recognize that fact...they actually believe the victim thing. Thus they stay in the same ditch of life suffering the same fate over and over. Society is definitely not getting better in that respect. WB

    The easy answer is a pretty obvious "yes", across the board, in almost every aspect of life. Unfortunately though, a major part of the issue stems from a changing outlook by society on this. People used to be held accountable for their actions and decisions, or at the very least, not taken such bleeding heart pity on.

    Wanting to pass the buck is an inherent part of human nature, but we used to be encouraged to have the integrity not to and respected when we didn't. Now days, no matter what your issues or how you managed to get yourself into them, you generally won't have too much trouble finding a sympathetic audience willing to enable you to hand off responsibility.

    It isn't more and more, it has always been so, why face up to our mistakes when we can say, 'look what you've made me do.'  It is of course nonsense, we are all responsible for our own actions, nobody can twiddle little knobs around and make us behave or think in certain ways.

    Do you really think it is weakness?  Nah I don't think it is weakness, it is more for the ego and self to feel good because one lacks productivity, positivity and self respect.  So the first opportunity that arrives regardless of how dysfunctional it is, ones uses that to promote their false pride and self esteem

    No, you want to blame other people for their problems. It's not my fault in the least.

    Yes - add to this the fact that so many know their rights but not responsibilities and we do have a blame culture.

    I think the vast majority of people always did want to blame others for their problems, it is only that there are more and more excuses for them to use and more and more different ways of doing so.

    Yes. Regrettably we live in a society that actively promotes a blame mentality. If something bad happens it has to be someone else's fault. People are increasingly reluctant to take responsibility for their own actions or accept that accidents happen. Our legal systems encourage and feed off it.
