WELCOME TO THE ERA OF HOPE AND CHANGE: Beware The Tyranny Of Choice. “When I speak about the ‘tyranny of choice,’ I mean an ideology that originates in the era of post-industrial capitalism. It began with the American Dream — the idea of the self-made man, who works his way up from rags to riches. By and by, this career concept developed into a universal life philosophy. Today we believe we should be able to choose everything: the way we live, the way we look, even when it comes to the coffee we buy, we constantly need to weigh our decision. That is extremely unhealthy.”

This is a very uninteresting treatment. I wrote a more interesting one in the Yale Law Report two decades ago. But my version has math — an actual model! — which is too much to expect from a neo-Lacanian, I suppose.
