This is what i have said before. When something goes wrong in our lives, we must ask ourselves, “What did I do wrong?”
The left blames everybody and everything else. I failed because of capitalism or racism or sexism. America is evil but they don’t recognise the evil in our own hearts that cause our own failures and misery.
Excerpt from link:
He is absolutely correct. The route to a better world lies in individual improvement. Even Dr Goh Keng Swee, one of Singapore's Founders recognised this. He once suggested that the best way to develop a poor backwards country was to send in the (preferably Protestant) missionaries.We were all taught that the most important battle we need to wage in life was with our own nature. Jews and Christians learned from the same Scripture that "the will of man's heart is evil from his youth" (Genesis 8:21).
Therefore, being a good person involved a constant battle with our flawed human nature: our urges, appetites and innate weaknesses. This battle was also the only real route to a better world.
In short, we have to accept the painful truth: When something goes wrong its usually our own fault. The Christian practice of confessing our sins is an useful exercise. It encourages us to examine our own faults and strive for improvements. This is probably one reason why Jonathan Gruber found that regular church goers enjoy higher income than non-church goers. This supports Max Weber's famous theory on Protestant ethics and the success of capitalism.All of us, whatever our political outlook, have to confront personal failure, loss, disappointment and unhappiness. When confronted with these challenges, religious Jews and Christians are taught to look inward for both the primary source of their problems and the primary solutions to those problems: What have I done wrong? What can I change in my life to solve my problems?
The message to leftists out there is we all make mistakes. Admit the failure is yours and don't blame others. We all behave like bums sometimes.The left, which proudly rejects Judeo-Christian values, has adopted the opposite of the Judeo-Christian view regarding pain in life. Leftists (as opposed to liberals) hold outside forces responsible for their pain. That is the reason for the litany of left-wing enemies: capitalism, patriarchy, misogyny, systemic racism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, sexism, xenophobia.
So, then, if you are an unhappy American woman, you can work on yourself and your nature, or you can blame sexism and patriarchy, i.e., men, for your pained state.
If you are an unhappy gay American, you can work on yourself, or you can blame society's homophobia for your unhappiness.
And, most significantly, if you are an unhappy black American, you can work on yourself and your life, or you can blame systemic racism and whites for your anger and unfulfilled life.
