Victim Mentality and Resentment of the Left – Roger Scruton…

01) Victim Mentality and Resentment of the Left – Roger Scruton


“Sir Roger Vernon Scruton is an English philosopher and writer who specialises in aesthetics and political philosophy, particularly in the furtherance of traditionalist conservative views.
In recent years he teached courses in Buckingham University, Oxford University and University of St. Andrews.”

I do think it would be wrong, to fail acknowledging that people on “the right” also use this tactic…[“Look at all these victims!”…”Look at all those abusers!”…”It’s their fault!”].

…I think, by virtue of how “the left” typically organizes and mobilizes…it’s more prone to be seen as synonymous with this behavior.

“The left” isn’t historically where all the money and established power are at…which leaves it up to smaller, weaker, isolated groups to unite with each other…and use their personalized tactics to fight for what they need or want.

“The right”, on the other hand, has been tapping into big business and conservative religion, for many decades…This juggernaut of a base, provides for a wider range of avenues.

…But that hardly means “the right” fails to use any of the tactics available, wherever they become useful to them.
