Philosophy – “A Problem with having Choice” – 5/14/2022

“Some argue that choice can be all one needs. Wherever has been an argument to tell everyone that when it comes to doing right, there can be no choice? A choice often falls into a realm, belonging to excuse. Excuse. Escapism. Or a wish to be free, without earning freedom. A desire to rest, while there happens to be work left to finish. With one choice, an absence of choice remains. In knowing where one commits themselves, choice stays with what defines an excuse, being two choices or one choice outside of what has always been one’s correct path.”

– Modern Romanticism

While one has choice, one can be free. This remains true, though has no one referenced over freedom to an element of it being deserved? Indeed, freedom cannot be gifted, unless we limit life to a simple beating heart. Freedom, for a person, becomes earned when we are able to receive something when coursing a path. Down this path, we obtain all things out of our toil. If life can be gifted all nothing more than choice, or freedom, it becomes something pathless. It becomes lost, thus almost always receiving a guidance from someone who grants a life, a path, though retains control over everything to that. In freedom, undeserved, shows that mental form of slavery.

If all a person requests can be endless choices, responsibility will be avoided. A commitment must receive our responsibility. Without commitment, all we are left with remains as choice. Without commitment to life for all it can earn, a choice stays defined as excuse. We are not given choice, any more than we are given opportunity without having been recognized first. If opportunity comes our way without a necessary ingredient as recognition, we are believed to have been gifted choice. However, that will forever be defined as mental slavery.

Mental slavery defines itself as a guidance of those lost, due to a person’s mind not able to cope with their losses, pertaining to life. A person being vulnerable through loss of immaterial value will turn to opportunity displayed as power. One vulnerable person will want for power, as if intending to retain control over potential future immaterial losses or those past ones that haunt this individual among memories. A loss of life becomes a loss of mental soundness, thus bringing on a factor of vulnerability where a person can be gifted choice. This gift’s intention cannot be for this person’s sake to find freedom, through deserving that. This gift’s intention will be to adopt or to find advantage in another’s vulnerability. Through that, this opportunity remains for this manipulator, not for that vulnerable individual.

A choice, when gifted, remains defined as manipulation to a vulnerable person who, in their trauma from loss, holds no understanding to value in an objective sense. When a person, in this vulnerable state, can still believe there are things left valuable to them, this undergoing manipulation upon them becomes proven when one can comprehend what conducts control over a mind. When addiction to power, in some means of escaping being responsible, can override an addict’s view upon what remains as valued, there shows proof within their actions and behaviors. In lost control, their behaviors are found as against their commitment to a value, outside of a manipulative process that controls them. Due to that, their actions show proof of this manipulative process that has gained control over such actions or behaviors, due to this absence of value that interred one potential addict into a vulnerable place of mind. Afterwards, manipulation brings a vulnerable person to discover gifted choice as their place, outside of where such an individual should be responsible.
