who's fault is it that I suffer

Why are millions trampled underfoot? why do people starve who never did anything to cause it? If they had no hand in it,surely,God would be responsible. therefore the better explanation is that I am responsible for the misery I suffer.If I set the wheel in motion,I am responsible for the result. And if I can bring misery,I can stop it.It necessarily follows that we are free.There is no such thing as fate.There is nothing to compel us.What we have done, we can undo.
