The actual victims are not that fond of the camera as much as the self proclaimed victims :??

How willing are you to help the victims of the 21st century ?? How quickly are you at jumping on the bandwagon whenever someone claiming to be a victim of "this and that" now a day?

I think we've swung from one extreme to another.

Prior generations were all about "manliness" - that is, never validating your own feelings and possible discomfort. You did what was expected of you and you were a wimp and a failure if you expressed any sort of weakness or vulnerability. You were forced to tolerate emotionally (and not rarely physically) abusive parents, then you were sent to school to tolerate it from teachers and peers, then you went out into the world to tolerate more of the same from employers, maybe even from your spouse. You tolerated it and you kept quiet because that was what "strong" people did, even if they were spiraling down in other ways, maybe relying on alcohol and cigarettes to keep the daily stress managed.
Granted, this is very much a generalization, and I'm sure many people in past generations had quite a support network throughout their lives, but it seems to me, having talked with a variety of older folk, that it was the norm to be dismissive / invalidating of your children, to "toughen them up".

Now, we're obsessed with validation. All feelings matter; you don't have to do anything you're not comfortable with, etc. It used to be that one dismissed their own feelings for the sake of family or society - now, the norm is to bend society for the sake of your feelings. I think the core of the problem is that, at some point, we failed to teach our children to be responsible for themselves in the ultimate way, in their own minds. We've let an entire generation grow up thinking it is everybody else's duty to not be offensive in any way, when what really matters is how we manage our reactions to something potentially offensive.
We've done a full 180 and now we cater irrationally to feelings at the expense of all else. SJW-style political correctness is destroying the world: the US is pretty crazy, but the effects it's had in Europe are a lot more severe...

Example:
I'm autistic, and use the internet quite a bit. Now, some of you may be aware that what's cool on the internet now is to call people autistic, because edgelords, I guess.
It does bother me quite a bit when I come across it, because I'm still very insecure about my ability to function "normally". I want to call those people out and somehow make them feel accountable for their insensitivity and intentionally inflammatory manner of behaving. But I won't, because I'm not the sort of miracle worker than can persuade people to be decent over the internet. It would take more energy to pursue that than the actual offended feeling aroused, assuming I achieved anything at all. So, acknowledging that it is out of my power, and not my place, to control the actions of others, I then seek to control myself, my own reaction. Habits of thought change but slowly, but continual mindfulness and discipline is what makes a functional adult, methinks. The responsibility is not on others to watch their words, but on my to watch myself.

This is why it's so popular to be a victim now. You don't have to take responsibility for yourself - you can just whine and complain that someone violated your safe space and a million fervid people will shame them into silence. To be a Victim means you no longer have to work to better yourself, or work on self-control. You can be as much of a child as you want, stagnating forever. It will always be someone else's fault.

I used to be like that, actually. Really sickening how easy it is to fall into that way of thinking, seeing as how it's all we're shown anymore. I think the solution lies with individuals and their own choices. It's isn't going away overnight, just as it didn't come overnight. The best I think we can do in the face of such a mad world is opt to be mindful, behave with decency, and ignore the noise SJW's make, whilst raising our own children to be better.

All this talk the validity of victimization may be related to oversensitivity to any threat to self-esteem. A person may want to bully others to gain self-esteem. They would express agressive overeaction to counterbullying because they do not want their self-esteem to be hurt even when their self-esteem is fulling their complacency which then lead to a lot of social problems. That is what the Ford Nation, a Canadian populist group, did against the autistic children when Rob Ford is elected and allow his dangerous supporters to take high position of authority in schools.

From my speculation, the American populists may be complaining about the "too many victims nowaday" to deny their own victim status. They enforce the victim blaming policies on the assumption that victimization is either a choice or punishment for some bad deeds. They suffer slandering from the news and politicians of the metropolitan cities and their rural communities suffer economic hardship from globalization; the populists become a victims against their own choice and for deeds that are moral. This victim blaming culture originate from the white caste who, in contrast to the black caste, get special status and full autonomy over their own affairs; they are given the prestige of an adventurers in MMORPG games and autonomy of superheros in action fiction story.

A similar thing could be said about the US politicians' response to Putin's interference depending on the interpretation. Many Washington politicians are sensitive to Putin`s interference on the 2016 US election because of their national pride. The US have so much dominating power over other states that they cannot tolerant even minor threat to their sovereignty from foreign power. Putin might not receive much retaliation in his attempts to meddle in the election of European states and assist the election of the local populist parties but he should be very careful in his interference on the US elections. His interference on US election is minor and indirect but he could still offend the Washington politicians. The bipartisan votes in expelling the Russian diplomat might had gain such overwelming support for this reason.

Some people who think they are a victim to something are just being too sensitive while others are quite clearly victims of something. It's generally easy to separate from the delusional victims to the actual ones if you wait a moment, think, and realize what the proclaimed victamazition is.

Also, side note, since we have Internet(a large source of information) you're hearing more & more of victims from different things like terrorists & Catholics or daily troubles like a woman being harassed by a store clerk. But some of this information, more so the community things, are over dramatized or edited like a African American women saying a clerk was being racist by denying her a percentage off even tho she had a coupon when in actuality the coupon was expired & she wouldn't listen but instead went full crazy. So in short, lot of information about victims, some of it over dramatized

The number of victims has not increased. There are just more false victim claims.
