What if it adversely affects someone else?

Yes, good point. Let us expand the notion of "you" to include those around you. That could be an indicator of some sort of disorder that might need investigating.

I'm thinking the set of people that fit that defintion is rather large.

Suppose we believe that adverse effects on us are dominantly due to laziness, incompetence, neglect, or even malice on the part of others; what then?

The brilliant minds at the Vatican worked out the "what then."

Are most people lazy, incompetent, neglectful or malicious? I doubt it. Suppose we treat those in some authority according to a belief they are generally lazy, incompetent, neglectful or malicious. Will they think we're mistreating them, assuming they care at all? Am I describing some 'mental disorder'? If so, name it. (I'm just asking on behalf of a friend.)

I think lazy, incompetent, neglectful or malicious are symptoms not the disorder. The actual problem is an information digestive issue - IBD irrational brain disorder.
