Culture, society, nay the whole world is ailing in bloodbaths and perpetuated cycles of corruption and abuse, all caused by irrational ideas held and passed on by the worst bullies, sociopaths, and megalomaniacs.
Those who do evil always know in their heart of hearts how guilty they are. Should we then be surprised about the fact that they have sold us “forgiveness” as such a cherished, respectable and almost universally lauded virtue?
I firmly believe that their era is coming to an end and a new one dawns. What we make of it is up to us.
So to make the world a better place, good people should not make forgiving others their objective. They should do all those annoying, “nasty”, and unpopular things: They should absolutely point fingers, play “the blame game”, judge, and condemn those who have done them emotional and physical harm. They should make them earn forgiveness if anything, but not dispense it here and there as if it could be willed into existence upon request like a genie.
