Noticing Consequences

“For the record, the degree of conscious intent of any behavior is a mildly interesting facet, but I’m less interested in it than are most. This is in part because I’m inclined to give people less of a moral or legal pass on the harms resulting from their behaviors if they did not consciously intend such consequences. It is just too easy for people to not notice consequences, when they find it in their interest to not notice.”
