I agree with your idea that humans will make themselves feel better about bad situations or decisions. As long as everyone acts like the current amount of harvest is normal then nobody will ever feel bad about harvesting in a way that is not sustainable, and due to that people will just keep using a resource until there is much less of it and a new standard is set for what is normal harvest.
