Escaping The Victim Mindset
By Liberty Report Staff
Much attention is being paid to Hillary Clinton's excuses for losing the election last year. We've all seen the headlines. She's blaming everyone but herself. But instead of bashing Hillary Clinton the person, it would be much wiser to look at her underlying philosophy and find the errors there.
You see, it makes perfect sense for Hillary to reject personal responsibility for losing. Accepting responsibility would effectively nullify her entire political career.
Clinton's claim to fame is victimhood. Millions of Americans have latched onto the belief that they are perpetual victims, and that Hillary will fight for them and get them free things. Hillary will force others to act in certain ways, and force others to think in certain ways.
If Hillary Clinton, all of a sudden, said "I am responsible," it would shatter the whole edifice that she has built over all these years.
Hillary is an example to her followers. If she sets an example of personal responsibility, it teaches her followers to do the same thing. If they, in turn, accept personal responsibility, the victimology gravy train would cease to exist.
So of course Hillary would blame the Russians, Bernie Sanders, Jim Comey, and even "millions of white people".
Doing so keeps her victimology career alive and profitable. Not only are Hillary's followers victims ... but now she can really feel their pain and be the victim too.
Let's say that you've bought into the victim mindset, and you want out. Where do you begin?
Well, the very first place is to accept that you are an individual human being. The first thing that victimology manipulators do is lump you into groups. You're supposed to identify yourself as a part of a group. This is done to strip you of your individuality. Instead of thinking or questioning things, you're meant to follow what the herd believes, and what the victimology shepherd has instructed the herd to believe.
In reality, you are an exquisitely unique individual. No one else is like you. No one else will ever be like you. What you see through your own eyes, and how you interpret it, is yours and yours alone.
That doesn't mean that you're alone. Far from it. Luckily there are other individuals around, or you wouldn't be here for very long. But the key is to recognize that they are unique individuals too. They too are one-of-a-kind.
Once you get that, it becomes barbaric to even consider forcing other individuals to act like you, or think like you. The very fact that they are different gives life all of its flavor.
Leaving the victimhood cult is not easy.
In fact, it's probably very scary.
Liberty puts you in charge. It's your natural state.
In fact, you're so free that you can accept your freedom, or you can reject it and put the "authorities" in charge.
There are always plenty of "authorities" waiting for you to throw in the towel.
That's no way to live.
