I think it's a stupid word. Few things are really inevitable, and in many cases the fact that you recognize something's likelihood is exactly what makes it evitable. More often than not I find the word becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy and/or an excuse not to do hard things. This is a complicated world we live in, and people are complicated; if you think you've got human nature figured out to the point where you can declare the inevitability of any human action, you're painfully underselling the human race.

Good point. M's brought a video on her last trip that talked all about the power of positive thinking. Your post reminded me of that.
