The role of the scapegoat is a very important one and comes with a lot of responsibility. The scapegoat knows when he is being scapegoated and he knows when he is powerless to defend himself from those accusations. We scapegoats work in secret solving problems that aren’t even ours. Some may view the scapegoat as weak, but in reality we are very, very strong. We get to learn from the mistakes of others. Part of learning is doing and we are rich with experiences.
Story of my life. And I am really strong through having taken in other people’s evil. They have shown me their structural flaws by passing on the blame to me. Sometimes these flaws are personal and sometimes societal.
The shaman takes in the evil of society and does alchemy with it. The more evil you give me, the more I have to work with. I can turn it into gold.
