We have summarily relinquished ourselves from blame. We have relieved our common conscience by creating a common evil entity for which to blame our sins.
"They".... are us. "They"... are a mirrors reflection....that through some strange cerebral ocular regeneration, sees absolutely nothing. It can't be me. It must be them.
We are supposed to be running the show! Why then, are we not blaming the current state of affairs on ourselves? Why have we created an unknown entity for which we can assign blame?
