"evolutionary" result of the history reinforcement to which I have been
Well, in that case you should be VERY careful about your choice of environments!
(That choice would be determined by your history of reinforcement, by the
way.) B. F. sez (in _Freedom & Dignity_) that we _can_ still hold you
responsible for your behavior, by which he simply means arranging
consequences for it. So the next time you screw up, two guys named Leni and
Tony may be stopping by your house for a little "talk," if you get my drift.
