Decision Query

By | June 8, 2018

Most people want to feel they have a choice, but are actually just fine with only the feeling and in many ways prefer that to having a real choice.

That is, most people don’t actually want to be condemned to Sartre’s freedom, but rather want to believe they could have made a different choice, but in reality there was no conditional decision, just the illusion thereof. This is the preferred state of humanity it seems, as real choices are terrifying and too consequential.
