militate
intr. v.

To have force or influence; bring about an effect or a change:

“All these factors militated to a different targeting priority” (Tom Clancy). “The chaste banality of his prose... militates against the stories' becoming literature” (Anthony Burgess).
Not even the five fingers of our hands are alike.
