Destined To Passive Cheat

by Mr. Lazy

Newsweek reports that the more you believe in destiny over free-will, the more likely you are to cheat. The type of cheating is opportunistic in nature and not actively sought out.

This is what moral philosophers call “passive cheating.” It’s the equivalent of having a sales clerk give you too much change and not choosing to give it back.

The interesting thing is that since 1960, the number of people who report they have little or no control over their lives has increased. Also, the number of men who like drunk girls, women who like misplaced sales tags, and used car salesmen has skyrocketed.
