Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose. (*)

It has always been someone else's fault. Society as such has not changed at all. We do the same thing in different ways. Who, in all honesty, wants to take responsibility? It is, and always has been, easier to blame someone else. As Douglas Adams quite succinctly put it: SEP.

That is to say, my personal SEP-field is *very* strong.
