Stupid Thinking

Do you think things through? Before you act, do you consider what will happen as a result?

For example, before you lose your temper and yell at your friend, you think it over. "If I yell, he'll get upset and leave. I'll be alone all week, so I'd better control my temper." You see the step-by-step sequence of getting angry and change your mind.

If you can think in sequence, you are probably not a criminal. You can see the consequences of a crime. A criminal cannot think that far ahead.

"This is a consequence. 'If you saw off the limb you are sitting on you will of course fall.'

"Police try to bring this home often to people who have no concept of sequence; so the threat of punishment works well on well-behaved citizens and not at all on criminals since they often are criminals because they can't think in sequence."
-- L. Ron Hubbard

For example, a murderer may only think about revenge. He does not see beyond the death of the person he hates. He does not think about living in prison for the rest of his life.

Only criminals are stupid enough to think a crime has no consequences. They just grab what they want without thinking it through. Smart people, on the other hand, get what they want without committing a crime.
