Spoilers for The Good Place under the spoiler tag below:
In the sitcom The Good Place, Chidi’s character learns he’s in The Bad Place because of how his indecisiveness hurt everyone around him. However, being a professor of moral philosophy, Chidi understands that every action he takes has consequences that cannot be undone; so he spends so much time considering those consequences- nothing ever gets done.
I recently brought this up in an answer about fatalism, describing how free will would entail that we can predict the consequences of every action we take, but we would spend so much time thinking- nothing would ever get done. So I thought it was humorous when Chidi was doing exactly that.
My question is...
Is it morally wrong to try to consider every consequence that our actions will produce, since doing so would probably accomplish nothing?
If it is immoral, is it also immoral to make a decision without trying to consider every consequence our actions will produce?
Have there been any proposed solutions for this dilemma?
