Ever Wonder About the Origin of Scapegoating?

In the Biblical sense, scapegoating meant casting all of a group’s sins on a goat and sending it out into the wilderness.
Modern day terminology means an animal, person, or group chosen to symbolically bear or suffer for the bad luck or sins of an individual or group, or any person bearing blame for others.
In other words, scapegoating is far from being a new practice.
Interesting creatures we are.
