Who is to blame

There are two scenarios. 1. A father puts money aside for his son. When the son is ready to leave home the father buys his son a home and car. Now he says you have a head start in life. Take care of your home and car and enjoy. The son moves in - trashes the home, smashes up the car and then tells the father. "It's your fault you didn't stop me."
The father says you are an adult I expect you to act wisely.
2. The father puts money aside and buys his son a house and car when he comes of age. He gives them to his son. However he constantly checks the home to see if it is clean and tidy and is continually correcting his son for not looking after the home properly. The car he keeps to drive his son where he needs to go.
The son is upset. How can I grow up if you keep treating me like a child. You need to let me be responsible for my home and car.
When we trash our planet how can we blame the Creator for what we have done. Why do we always have to blame someone else for our own stupidity? We even go as far as killing others and the blame the Creator as as excuse.

aedna says: Thanks. It worries me that we don't accept our faults, we blame others. It's hard when innocent young people kill themselves because someone wants to take out their self hatred out on others. Prejudice and bullying are all part of this I feel. Whole cities have been destroyed because they don't fit someone's criteria. Reply

Bigfoot says: Scenario 1. The son is definitely to blame, he would obviously know that trashing the home and smashing the car was wrong. He lacks maturity in blaming his father.
Scenario 2. A nice dad giving his son the house BUT, he needs to let go of his son so that the son can grow and learn. Reply

aedna says: I am just talking about people in general. Look at the news. There's always someone we can blame. The response seems to be aggression or violence. We blame christians,news,Muslims our peer group or anybody but don't look at why we are doing this.self respect is very important. Humans have to stop blaming everyone else and work together in a sensible way to make this planet a better safer place Reply
