How to make things better.

You can acknowledge when you have privilege -- benefits, credit, choices -- and try to mediate it. Or -- use that privilege in a way that benefits others.

(You'll still get lots of things you don't deserve just by walking through the world.)

But when you know that choosing one path can have a devastating effect on others, and you have the opportunity to choose a different one, you should know, deep down, what to do. If you decide to exploit that privilege anyway, when you know better?

Well, don't come crying to me.

Because karma is a bitch.
