Opinion: A Shopping Cart Can Be Used To Determine Whether A Person Has Self-control Or Not

Imagine you have a cart full of products, you pay the bill and you go to the parking lot with the cart overflowing.

When you arrive, you start putting the products in the car. After a couple of minutes, you are done.

Now only you, your car and the empty cart remain.

You have the option of leaving the cart nearby, or taking it to its place where it should be left.

Returning the cart to its place is an easy task and one that we all recognize as the appropriate thing to do.

We know that returning the cart is objectively correct.

There is no situation except in an emergency where a person cannot return it to your site after making the purchase.

And at the same time, abandoning the cart is also not illegal.

So the cart represents the example of whether a person is going to do what is right without being obliged to do so.

No one is going to punish you for not returning it.

No one is going to fine you for not returning it.

No one is going to arrest you for not returning it.

No one is going to reward you for returning it.

But you know you should return the cart to its place because that is how it comes from your heart, by goodness. You should return it because it is not only appropriate, but it is also the right thing to do.
