I'm wondering whether instead of (or in addition to) a cost-of-living crisis (which is undoubtedly affecting those at the bottom), the wider problem is that we have a personal debt and inability to budget crisis? I wonder whether the anger from the middle earners is actually just people looking for someone to blame other than themselves. Like many people, I've experienced personal debt when I was younger. It never occurred to me to blame anyone else for it though (including lenders and governments). Is this blame thing a modern phenomenon? Or have people always been this unwilling to accept personal responsibility? From recent experience, what if a family member dies unexpectedly and you need to find the funeral costs? This isn't anything to do with managing budgets or personal responsibility. There are other examples anyone can give. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
