From the beginning of mankind, there was a need for a scapegoat. The first was Eve. Since then, for centuries, females were perceived and often treated as trouble. Therefore their rights were curtained.
In the Penn State University sex abuse scandal, John Ziegler argues on LawNewz that the then-president Graham Spanier had been among the scapegoats society required.
Today, Spanier was convicted on one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. Soon after the news broke that Jerry Sandusky allegedly was taking sexual advantage of young boys, Spanier was forced to resign. Joe Paterno was fired.
Now, that emotions have cooled and we have moved onto other scandals, we might wonder if the innocent had suffered. Ziegler might crowdfund a documentary showcasing a point of view that there had been a rush to judgment.
Anyone who has worked in a large organization knows that scapegoating is rampant. The best most of us can do is try not to be caught up in that force field. The power of it is spectacular. Maybe if Zielger dramatizes its dynamics, he could save some big jobs for those who did nothing wrong, except being there.
