should we give a shit?

given the concept of probabilistic causality -- i.e., that cause and effect might be too permeated with randomness as to make intervention a futile effort -- should we even help "make the world a better place", when it could very well be likely that our efforts, and anyone else's efforts, are ultimately in vain?

or should we just sit and watch TV?



by the way, a nice paper on Probabilistic Causation can be found here: http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/causation-probabilistic/
