As we approach 2014, it is time to let the past be past

When we approach a New Year, almost 70 years after the end of World War Two, the time is long overdue to stop blaming people, most of whom were not even born when World War Two came to and end.

The Culture of Blame directed against those who have nothing to do with the events of almost 70 years ago is a political tool to justify many of the ills of today and of not allowing people to utter any kind of criticism against things that are visibly wrong today.

The said Culture of Blame is so strong and so deeply rooted that the sole mention of any imagery or any reference to national identity is immediately rejected and ordinary people are forced to live in fear.

What the promoters of the said Culture of Blame miserably fail to understand is that their attitudes create resentment and hatred and that those who at the receiving end of this Culture of Blame will, once again, start using the symbols of the past to show their discontent and their rebellion against the oppression implemented by the said Culture of Blame.
