WHO IS TO BLAME?

Nearly everything in our world appears out of order, and regardless how awful and decayed these things are, we tend to blame everyone else—from the president to the governor and others in positions of greater authority—but are they really to blame for the state of our community? Do we all share responsibility equally, or does the entire burden fall on the ruling parties?

I've had the opportunity to stay with angry people who are tired of the state of our beloved country, but despite the fact that they constantly point the finger at others for not performing up to their standards, one thing I noticed is that none of them ever acknowledged failing the country in some way personally; instead, they portray themselves as saints who carried out their duties as required.

Everyone has a part to play in developing a country, which is a sad truth, especially if you keep calling for changes in all manner of areas. Then, in whatever capacity you find yourself, you must take action and serve as a symbol of change. Let your work and the results of it speak positively enough to effect a change for the better.

Truth be told, the government officials and all the ruling parties have the larger share of work to perform in order to take the nation to the desired envisioned destination, but if they were unable to do that due to one or another laspe, like corruption, a lack of empathy, and the like, then I must put it to you that the parent of such a leader and the society he grew up in take a larger share of the blame.

An adage in my mother's tongue says "Ile la ti n ko eso ro de," which simply means "charity begins at home," so for every bad leader, terrorist, kidnapper, and the like we have today, they've all at one point or another passed through a parent who didn't give them as much moral training during their tender age, and if the parent were to do their part, then other parents and society members were the ones who created another monster that corrupted his/her mind.

We also have instances where a person in the lower section, like you, lies about when they will report for duty while being aware of both your mistakes and the real time of arrival. We've heard someone complain about how bad the governors are, but the governors themselves won't provide decent service unless you bribe them, and they even frequently give people who tip them priority over those who are supposed to receive it.

In a nutshell, everyone should be held accountable for the dire state of our nation, either due to their professional traits or because they are neglecting their proper responsibilities as parents or community elders, who should tame and warn anyone who isn't acting appropriately from a young age before such acts become ingrained in their attitude.

The good news is that there is a way out of all of this. As the saying goes, "Rome wasn't built in a day," and while it is true that improving ourselves takes time, we must all resolve to make a positive change in our behavior. We must also commit to always acting appropriately and to correcting any signs of wrongdoing in the lives of the developing children and teens around us.

And with this few point implemented, I can assure you that the world will gradually become a better place for each of us to live in.



Thanks for reading through my blog post; have a wonderful night's rest.

If only everyone could adopt this perspective, the world won't be such a man, blaming something else for our failures has always been the culture of man kind. There 3 components elements in every country, a population, legitimate sovereign and constitution and a population. Meaning in every we would always have the ruling class and the citizen but that doesn't mean that because a person is not part of the governing council, doesn't have part to play in performing their duties to the country.

I have heard many people talking about eradication of corruption as a duty of the government, forgetting that corruption is not a place or thing you could fight with physical force. Corruption is a state of mind that exist in every human. It is not only the duty of the government to eradicate corruption but the dry of every populace of a state.

This write up is highly educative thanks for sharing.

The blame game saga has always been in existence. It seems as though it is part of man.

If you look at it from the Biblical perspective, haunty Eve and Hunkul Adam were so quick to use the blame card when they discovered their mistakes.

Similarly, we are so quick to put all the blame at the desk of the government, and canonised ourselves as saints. We forget that we have a part to play in the blame. Naaaa, we choose to ignore.

If we focus on our part, and everyone do what they are supposed to do (devoid of corruption)... we (Nigeria as a case study) will surely develop.

The problem starts and finishes with us. A lot of us will do the same if we were given the chance to be leaders. How many times haven't you head or seen someone switch up the moment they win an election or they become a Politian with power?

Even for some who have very little roles to play in the society we are still very corrupt, we display how arrogant we are and at the end of the day all we are good at is blaming the government.

A clear example is with how we dispose our waste. There are dustbins provided at places but instead we dumb them anywhere and expect the government to send someone over to clean up our mess, we don't even go out for communal labor if its organized. We are our own problem.

We all are scared of taking responsibilities, we prefer to be in the receiving end than the giving point. Our parents will never agree they are the cause of the problem we are facing today and that is one major reason why crime keeps increasing on a daily basis. Our parents believe they did their best, but then the little mistakes made are not really little because they end up being the main thing.

I know what is right and what is wrong but sometimes I might get it wrong but then there might be no one to point out my wrongs to me because they don't want anyone to point theirs to them.

Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention once again.
