This is a very broad statement and I agree with it in some circumstances; I see how this can easily lead into a debate of how we'd all still think the world is flat if it wasn't for our inquisitive nature.

My point was that we need to be careful of placing blame on another person for every bad thing that happens to us. It can lead to avoidance of responsibility and a focus on the negative aspects of life rather than the positive.
