Dead? Themselves to blame
“Or do you think that those eighteen people on whom the tower of Siloam fell and defeated them were more guilty of all those living in Jerusalem?” (Luke 13: 4).
I don’t know how in other countries, but in Russia the victim is always blamed, if there is even the slightest opportunity. And if it is not, then it is invented. And it's not just about victims of rape or domestic tyranny. It says about any tragedy.
People died in a lighted plane – because they climbed up after things.
In Krymsk – because the bed was built up.
In "The Lame Horse" – and it was not necessary to drink fasting.
In “Winter Cherry” – and it was necessary to look ahead of the way out (not counting the ducks about the teachers who left the children and went shopping).
People were beaten at a demonstration / concert, or even transplanted – they had to sit at home.
And "Charlie Ebdo" was shot for the case, and the Bataclan massacre is a direct result of how they live in the West incorrectly there.
And so on, it happens literally every time. And with the conviction that sick children are born only from some wrong parents, I come across almost every day.
Sometimes it seems to me that fellow citizens profess a primitive cult of karmic retribution. Or they just really want the world to be logical and explainable. All this is too scary, too close, too dangerous, and you can’t protect yourself from harm in any way – this is what fate says: “Well, we live right, this cannot happen to us, for some reason”.
Us – for no reason. And them too. We just do not control the world and, leaving home, we can never know for sure if not for the last time.
"Watch and pray." There is nothing more to be done.
