Responsibility-phobia? Consequence aversion?

Why have we, as a soci­ety, devel­oped such a rabid fear of fac­ing the con­se­quences of our actions?  Not all indi­vid­u­als are like that, of course, but far too many are!  Every day I hear peo­ple at work (cus­tomer or cowork­ers) who claim that they should not have to face the con­se­quences brought about by what they have cho­sen to do.

Isn’t that some­thing we learned as chil­dren?
