I'm looking for terms that define the following presuppositions:

  1. every action should be valued based on its outcomes, not choosing is a choice
  2. impact of an action must be valued based on the observable change of the world, regardless of the actor
  3. in every moment, one has to decide for the present, counting with all options, regardless of the sunk costs.

I'll be glad for every suggestion, thanks!

    This is a version of consequentialism close to act utilitarianism. – Conifold Apr 14 '19 at 22:52
