Since we can't blame God, Blame the USA...
INEVITABLY, confronted with a tragedy of unimaginable scale, the human mind looks for someone to blame. In the Dark Ages, disasters were ascribed to the wrath of God. Now, in an odd inversion that we like to think of as progress, they are adduced as evidence of no God.
In the absence of a deity to decry or appease when the earth moves in such devastating fashion, humankind reaches for the next best thing - worldly authority. Authority should have known it was coming. Authority didn't do enough to prevent it. Authority was too preoccupied with its own nefarious priorities to care.
How true is this in all aspects of life today? Society doesn't want an almighty to trust and obey, but they certainly want an almighty to Blame and sue when nature takes its course..
Life and death are outside of our hands. We all die. It is not a matter of if, but of when. It doesn't matter who built the ladder you fell off, or who built the car that you crashed, if you had not died from that, something else whould have gotten you later.
No matter how many companies or gaverments the lawyers put out of business, people are still going to die.. No company has power over human mortality.
