Quotes: Society Is to Blame
"He's only a lad, you really can't blame him
Only a lad, society made him
Only a lad, he's our responsibility, oh oh oh
Only a lad, he really couldn't help it
Only a lad, he didn't want to do it
Only a lad, he's underprivileged and abused
Perhaps a little bit confused, oh oh oh..."
Oingo Boingo, "Only A Lad"

Dammit . . . Why am I such an ass? It's society's fault. I've been bamboozled by the system. The public schools dumbed me down! The media brainwashed me! The government surgically crafted stupidmantium onto my skeleton! Which doesn't change the fact that I'm an ass . . .
Slick, Sinfest

It's not my fault that I'm so evil
It's society! Society!
You see, my parents were sometimes abusive
And it made a prick of me!
Saddam Hussein, "I Can Change", South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut
