The habitual and the essential

When we eat something unhealthy we feel bad. Same with what we are not used to. But the distinctions is crucial. Because habituation can be changed, and is many times worthwhile. While more ingrained causes are less flexible.

Here is a strong deviation from the idea of "get used to it". Getting used to unhealthy stuff cannot make them healthy. Habituation power is mainly good habits that are not bad by themselves. Where the only problem is psychological.

The same idea applies to the positive. There should probably be more value in inherently positive experiences that inn those who are just made up to create the experience.

Analogy from the financial crises. Illiquid banks are useful to bailout. Yet bankrupt banks (zombie, like in japan) are better off to die, they are better off dying
