When people have the freedom to choose, they choose wrong

  • Wrong is Easier; People choose the easy way out

    I would like to hope that people choose the right thing. But most likely, The right choice is the least fun option and no one wants to pick the right choice. The right answer is always the more dedicated route, The route with the least consequences and people are so lazy and selfish that they would rather choose the route that seems simpler but they always seem to figure out sooner rather than later that choosing right leads to better results. Like when choosing a partner, People will most likely pick the person that gives them a bad feeling but the initial attraction and the amazing connection keeps them choosing wrong. Choosing "right" is making decisions that are subdued and cautious and smart and dedicated. They aren't the fun way. But they are the way that will lead to a successful life and that is why so many people end up in the worst situations. Because the right choice, Is the boring choice but leads to the best long term rewards.

  • 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.
