A Culture of Shame and Blame
Topic: Shame

As long as shame and blame permeate our culture, we find fear.  Courage is based on love, which cannot blossom in a culture of shame and blame.  Remember that perfect love casts out fear? 

It takes courage, though.  Courage to quit blaming people, as if blame cures anything!  Blame, as I see it, is just shame turned outward onto others.  When victims get blamed, people are really acting out of shame.

Shame, not guilt.  Remember that healthy guilt turns things around!
