Just a thought " when I was a youth, and complaining in un-necessary ways, I was told, just be happy your Alive, then just keep it up and then I'd really have Something to complain about "
I was driving to town the other day,and along side the road a coyote lay dead,from being hit by a vehicle ,I assume.The thought that popped into my mind was why do some animals understand the Consequenses of being hit,and others don't?,a friend riding with me pointed out,"yeah you never see a Crow get hit,they are to smart". So this set me out on a inquiry into "Consequence"
,in it's self it is a interesting word. I see we most often think "Neg" when the word is used, yet it in it's self means not,,simply means "Results of",so hold a form of "pre-conceived notions".
And a total different way of approaching Consequences is " Humans are the greatest creators on earth, yet with each creation,idea,thought, comes Consequences- is a Big Word.

2011 September 2, Phil McNulty, “Bulgaria 0-3 England”, in BBC:

The Individual is,or can be held "Acountable"-Yet can a Group,Society be held "Accountable" ?
One Reason I have avoided or been wary of "Belief" systems,"Group think",etc.
A example might be the Whole defining of "Gender",it very complex,and the only truly way to understand a individual through "Attention"- talking to them,listening to them as a individual,-not a Group
Once we "Name" something,someone for example,we have committed a "Act" even if only in our own minds-it is "stuck".
