ZetaTalk: Good Samaritan
Note: written by Jul 15, 1995

Where the victim has carried resentment forward into a fresh situation, with uninvolved spectators who have no knowledge of and certainly no guilt toward the victim's plight, a Good Samaritan dilemma may develop where the victim attacks his rescuers blindly. How does this play out? Who is to blame here? Where should the finger of blame, which in much of human society must point somewhere, point? The solution is to realize that there are two victims in this situation. This is a theme often enough played in your media - the good Samaritan caught in a cycle of violence, the healer who must struggle with demons brought forth by his good intentions.
