The Victim Cult: How the culture of blame hurts everyone and wrecks civilizations de Mark Milke

description

No one disputes that some people are victims—of others, accidents, and life.

But 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 Victim Cult 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 victimized to become stuck there, with the rise of Asian Americans over 150 years offered as a positive example.

From the foreword and reader reviews

“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.” — Ellis Ross, former elected chief councillor, Haisla First Nation

“Your introduction made me want to keep reading. It also told me that you are sane, in that you know the real problem lies in our individual hearts, so, as a reader, I know I can trust you. And your love for humanity shines through throughout the book.” — Tricia Radison

“I'd like to tell you how refreshing it is to read something so full of common sense!” — Louise Fairly
