Intentions

Many people start off with good intentions and like to like to think they have a lot of compassion for others. However, there is a common saying: “the road to hell is paved with good intentions”.

Good intentioned actions could have a temporary effect of partially alleviating suffering. However, they can also lead to some unintended consequences.

Some of the consequences can include:

  • Enabling self-destructive behavior in individuals
  • Unintended systematic failures causing groups of peoples or even societies to collapse in the long run

On the other hand, looking towards antifragility builds better than robust solutions.
