Moreover, in the final analysis, our uncontrolled willfulness can be a cover up with we ourselves its main dupe. Yes, it tries to hide from others our insufficiently developed ability to use reason, rationality and civility to manage our thoughts, emotions and actions. But in the absence of such a mature ability, it is we who are left with resources that are shallow and intentions that are mean-minded, even cruel, or corrupt.
Yet, the complexities, multitudes, mysteries and vast resources of human nature offer us far more decent options than those offered by the dark side of willfulness. And it is to our larger possibilities that we have dedicated ourselves.
