No accountability. We are rewarded for bad behavior in every facet of life, from top to bottom.

action and reaction ~ for better or worse.

Law of the universe and it is not a matter of faith or karma; you do something and there are concequences for that action, whether they effect you directly is a matter of debate but they are always there.

Of course, that is accurate. However, when there are no direct consequences or accountability, there really is no motivation for anything other than fulfilling your own self interest. And again,
not only do we not provide consequences for bad behavior, we reward it time and time again. No one changes unless they feel it is in their best interest to do so. Why should they? As long as society condones it, it continues for all the flowery bullshit we provide.

selfishness, ego, dishonesty, hatred, bigotry, greed/materialism, lack of empathy, lack of humility, immaturity

I think that's enough

No I suspect you failed to understand ~ the suffering created by bad behaviour is a concequence of an action, that is a direct concequence. Cause and effect are the root causes of all problems and all sucesses in the world ~ the trick is to try and make it that little bit better.

i place the blame for all the ills of the world throughout history squarely on the Texan shoulders of "president" George W. Bush.
