When people have the freedom to choose, they choose wrong

  • This is a terrible generalization.

    Generalizations like this are a part of what keeps humanity from becoming more advanced. While of course Liberty has its consequences, one can't argue that all people will choose wrong if they have the opportunity to choose at all. Also, what are we defining as wrong? Most conceptions of wrong are merely opinions.

  • Well yes and no but let me explain

    Some people make the wrong choices and some people make the right ones, this is why some people are successful and others are not. Given the freedom to choose people will usually choose the most selfish option because that is human nature but sometimes there are outside pressures that alter people's decisions. I do not think it is appropriate to generalize every person by saying they always make good or bad choices they choose what is best for them and sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't. Also right and wrong is totally subjective so if you wanted to make an objective judgement of decisions maybe we could have a discussion about that but this question is dumb.
