about

No one disputes that some people are victims—of others, accidents, and life. However, we also all know someone who thinks like a victim. The Victim Cult is about such people—who play the victim card—but multiplied by millions, where people and societies become stuck blaming others.

The book looks at the worldwide grievance culture from American college students to some Canadian indigenous leaders and on to Donald Trump. It also details the tragic historical consequences when victim narratives go viral and destroy entire societies and civilizations.

The Victim Cult also chronicles the refusal of some who were in fact victimized to get stuck there, with the rise of Asian Americans over 150 years as a positive example. Foreword by former Haisla Nation chief councillor Ellis Ross.

“In reading this book, I saw what I had learned put in print for the first time: The false narratives or ideologies that convince people that they are doomed to fail and that someone else or something else is to blame. There is plenty of blame to go around, but I prefer finding solutions.”
—Ellis Ross, former elected chief councillor, Haisla First Nation
