Who is the victim?

It’s kind of peaceful. I am so loving it.

What a pity that the weakest link pulled off an agenda without knowing that being the weakest link, the weakest link gets to be the victim in the end, while reading the whole thing in reverse. Well, that maybe is the whole point of being a bonehead.

But before I will be suspected of speaking in tongues, what exactly is a victim?

There are a few definitions from Thesaurus.com that interest me:

  • someone sacrificed
  • object of ridicule
  • person who is fooled
  • fall guy
  • stupid or ridiculous person
  • person who takes blame for another action

With these few definitions, who would ever want to be a victim? No one, of course.  Unless…

Lest a person does not know that he or she is a victim.  But is that possible that a person may not know that he or she is a victim? It is.  If a person, as I said, is a bonehead, then he or she could be used, for example, as a sacrifice, or someone who is going to take the blame for another person’s misdeed.  If a person is non compos mentis, then a fall guy is born, an easy target for the charlatans.  There are certainly creatures who are as evil, and the victim does not even know they are.

There are people who use other people for their ulterior and evil motives.  Believe me, they exist.  Quite a handful really.  Motives, though, vary from good to bad, bad to good.  I do not think that there is an in-between.  We all share the good and the bad, no exemption, only that there are people with convictions higher than the rest.

But to victimize or prey on other’s weaknesses, that is unimaginable.   It  is like murder, that pre-meditated act of crime.

  1. There are truly people who prey on other's weaknesses. We can say they are pathetic but it is more like they are hateful and dangerous.

    thanks for the comment, atticus.
