Originally coined by sociologists Bradley Campbell and Jason Manning in an academic journal, they were seeking to understand a new and emerging moral culture that was becoming prevalent in our society. ๐Ÿ™Œ

But please hear me out! ๐Ÿ™

If you feel inclined to quickly dismiss this term as some right-wing rhetoric, I urge you to hear me out. As a fellow Liberal, allow me to explain and provide greater context. โค๏ธ

The authors clearly state: “๐—ข๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ผ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ด๐˜† ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ฝ ๐˜‚๐˜€ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ด๐—ผ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ผ๐—ป, ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ป ๐—ถ๐˜. ๐–๐ž ๐›๐ž๐ฅ๐ข๐ž๐ฏ๐ž ๐•๐ข๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐ฆ๐ก๐จ๐จ๐ ๐‚๐ฎ๐ฅ๐ญ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ž ๐š๐œ๐œ๐จ๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ข๐ฌ๐ก๐ž๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ฌ.” ๐Ÿ™Œ

Is it fair to say every Culture brings with it a set of pros and cons, benefits and disadvantages? Is it fair to say some of the things these cultures bring may be more helpful, more unhelpful than others? ๐Ÿ‘

So, in order for us to better understand what Campbell and Manning mean by “Victimhood Culture”, they say we must first look at 2 previous types of moral cultures: Honor and Dignity Culture.

By placing each of these cultures alongside each other, it can help us better understand their distinct differences. โ†”๏ธ

It is the same reason why individuals who strongly identify with a Dignity Culture are finding it very difficult to understand Victimhood Culture, and vice versa.

Now of course, these are big generalizations, so Iโ€™d love to hear everyoneโ€™s thoughts on these ideas! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

If you’re interested in learning more, I recommend checking out the full-length book! Note: It is an academic read, so it can be dry at times to read, with more sources than full-length pages! ๐Ÿ˜…

If anything, I hope in sharing these ideas it can spark a discussion and provide additional food for thought to helping us better understand what’s going on right now. โค๏ธ
