Blame is therefore a curious paradox: necessary and functional, but also deflective and destructive.  Stephen Fineman
It would be hard to conceive of a society where blame and righteous anger play no part. Without blame, moral codes, whatever their provenance, would be unenforceable and legal structures unsustainable. If we look at the origins of the term 'blame' it is rooted in ancient ecclesiastical moralizing and disapproval - blasphemare - 'speaking evil of'. Blame is therefore a curious paradox: necessary and functional, but also deflective and destructive.
Stephen Fineman, The Blame Business: The Uses and Misuses of Accountability
