    This is a problem with humanity.

    In good times many become over indulgent and glutinous.

    Bad times creates people with more discipline.

    But nobody wants a constant state of bad times.
    Is this a problem with humanity, or just a sub-conscious, natural phenomena that occurs in times of abundance?

    Yes, and like grapes not previously sampled, the taste left in ones mouth by choosing some as priori method are likely bad. There is no replacing experience then sampling again over time to estimate what is good judgement.
