About the Book
No one disputes that some people are victims—of others, accidents, and life. But we also all know someone who thinks like a victim. The Victim Cult is about such people—who play the victim card—but multiplied by millions, where people and societies become stuck blaming others. The Victim Cult looks at the worldwide grievance culture from American college students to some Canadian indigenous leaders and on to Donald Trump. It also details the tragic historical consequences when victim narratives go viral and destroy entire civilizations. The Victim Cult also chronicles the refusal of some who were victimized to get stuck there, with the rise of Asian Americans as a positive example.
