Things can go wrong in a variety of ways; e.g.,: 1. The risk management program may be designed to benefit the leading domineering people, far more than to help us all. a. By helping some people avoid exposure, embarrassment, harm, costs, discovery of their dishonesty, etc. --- at high costs to us. b. By being based upon dishonest/inaccurate ways of dealing with patterns of cause and effect within the reliable realm of natural scientific laws of nature. c. By being based upon false claims about how effective magic, voodoo, and other primitive rituals are --- in bringing benefits to those who believe in them. d. By being designed to create manipulative fears in us regarding fabricated dangers --- when apart from the efforts of the domineering people there would be no real dangers. 2. The risk management program may entail an unfair distribution of costs and benefits; even though it may deal with real risks in ways which are effective ways for dealing with those risks: a. By charging unjust prices for services rendered; thereby shifting wealth unjustly from vulnerable people to powerful people. b. By being dishonest about how services will be distributed among the beneficiaries of an insurance policy. c. By not being honest about the relative levels of risk which actually exist among the people presumably covered by the program of risk management. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
