This is a generalization, of course, but it seems as though we human beings are hard-wired to avoid doing the right thing until forced, at the last possible moment, into a corner.

Take recycling, for instance. Think of all the years of waste and careless consumption by a good part of the world that now results in a need for austerity. Or, on an individual level, the person who cuts back on fatty food, or alcohol, or salt - but only after being diagnosed with a related malady.

It would appear that moderation and balance may be learned, not built in.
