Just as leaders are recruited by groups, shouldn’t we recognize that scapegoats are recruited  by groups?

Just as we say that a person has “leadership potential,” shouldn’t we recognize that a person has scapegoat potential?

Just as we say, “People look up to him, he’s a natural leader” shouldn’t we say, “People project onto him, he’s a natural scapegoat?”

Just as we say, “People look up to him, he’s a natural leader” shouldn’t we say, “People gang up on him?”

We accept it as natural if a person says on his resume, “I have had numerous leadership roles” shouldn’t we accept it as natural — and not as an admission of paranoia — “People gang up on me in groups?”

Just as we say there are leaders and followers, shouldn’t we say there are scapegoats and ____________________ ?  (What is the blank?)
