Being a victim plays easily into all of this. It's real easy getting attention if you are a victim. In fact, some have chosen to make a career of playing the victim. Their victim status makes them a celebrity. They aren't interested in real justice or practical solutions, as they are in gaining a platform for their make-believe injury. To actually solve the problem would take away their position and thus the attention. I don't think I have to explain how this is harmful to the individual, and to the rest of us.
