Making the Future Female

Psst! It’s the system…


You are not responsible!

The idea that everybody is fully responsible for their
actions is called the DISPOSITIONAL FALLACY by social scientists.

In other words, we wrongly assume people could have acted
differently in particular circumstances, and therefore that we would have been more honest, brave, moral, kind, whatever if we were in that situation.

However research shows that most folk pay too little
attention to the situation and too much to the individual when blaming others for their actions.

Didn’t Jesus say something about throwing the first stone?

Let’s have more compassion and less condemnation.

We are all the same animal.

It’s the system that needs changing.

    Yo lower! The fallacy is the heirarchy that delegates the system to us – the system is well hidden behind the male salesmen who, under the guise of declaring themselves the ones in control of it as they have the power, wealth and networks to perpetuate it, we are daily repressed by it. Tiz an old one but these war mongerers continue to divide and conquer us, by getting us all to attack each other, whilst they enjoy the fruits. One question, if it’s great for everyone to aspire to, how come no-one really gets there and it is only available to an elite club of medieval patriachs? We’ve still got povertry, malutrition, hunger, war, religion etc. and a system that is damaging most of us daily. The enormity of the problem. Got an answer, solution on changing the system then lowerarchy or anyone out there? Tim
