The idea that they're just modifying their moods regardless of how things go would make people feel fake, and less happy, so instead they synthesize the "everything happens for a reason" stuff.
If that makes sense. .
It does, but I think this really raises serious questions about our society which is increasingly focused on making MORE choices, but really wether you have chocolate or Strawberry icecream probably wont matter to you, and that you are actually better off not picking. (bleh, my phrasing is so affected by having watched 5 TED speaches...)
It also explains why I am so fond of flipping coins to decide various lesser important choices.
