Poverty and the culture of blame

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

There is an international effort to make poverty history. I believe we'll be much nearer to that goal when we eradicate the paralysing effects of a mental condition that impoverishes our world: blame.

In a culture of blame, people are inclined to shut their eyes to solutions. There's a tendency to believe that societal problems are caused by external factors created by someone else, and that individuals have no power to make a change.

We'd love to hear from you!
