Too Many Choices?

choices

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!”
–Isaiah 5:20-21

Sometime around twenty years ago, a curious media campaign developed.

It was the campaign to convince Americans–the original “Land of 1000 Choices”–that CHOICE was a bad thing and that too many choices would just make a person sad, unhappy, unproductive and suffer any other debilitation that the writers could think of.

Too many choices: a circumstance which had PREVIOUSLY been thought of as a benefit was now supposedly a serious problem causing MUCH unhappiness and stress in moderns.

A few examples of this type of “reasoning” follow.

Too many choices?

Although an explosion of consumer choices may mean we sometimes get exactly what we want, too many choices can also overwhelm us to the point where we choose nothing at all, and in the worst-case scenarios, may even erode our well-being, finds a fresh line of research by psychologists critically examining today’s marketing climate.

The Surprising Poverty of Too Many Choices

People get stuck. Increasingly as we reach certain levels of success, the reason is a surprising one: we actually have too many choices.

11 ways having too many options is screwing us up

From choosing the best tacos to finding the ideal mate, today’s perils of choice come from every direction. Almost every part of daily life requires us to choose, compelling many to waste a ton of time and energy on research for fear that the wrong decision might get made.

Why Having Too Many Choices Is Making You Unhappy

Too many choices exhaust us, make us unhappy and lead us to sometimes abscond from making a decision all together.

It was during the time that we were told TOO MANY CHOICES was making us miserable that the now-infamous lie “LESS IS MORE” began to be pounded into Americans’ awareness.

“Gee, IF ONLY we all had LESS choices, we’d be MORE happy.”

That was what the “experts“–using Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media)–were telling anyone who would listen.

It looks like events are about to prove the “experts” were ahead of the curve on this one.

The entire world was shut down–probably the only time healthy people were quarantined (usually, it is the sick who are quarantined)–and as business begins to re-open its doors to customers once more, the choices available seem to have disappeared or severely cut.

Choices in products offered, choices in products available at ANY PRICE.

Choices in size, price, features, styles: choices of all types seem to have been scaled back.  Even choices of where to buy a product–mostly the products seem to be available online–have lessened.

But the reader need not be concerned because LESS IS MORE, remember?

This will NOT get better: it only gets worse–at least until Jesus Christ returns.

In the meantime, the reader should prepare to be told how absolutely wonderful his life has become since he lost all of those nasty choices.

And be told again and again…

Over and over and over…

Because that’s the way propaganda works.

“No amount of genius spent on the creation of propaganda will lead to success if a fundamental principle is not forever kept in mind. Propaganda must confine itself to very few points, and repeat them endlessly. Here, as with so many things in this world, persistence is the first and foremost condition of success.”
–Adolf Hitler, Propaganda, the Big Lie and Adolf Hitler: 20 Hitler Quotes on Propaganda

Being exposed to a daily dose of propaganda is one choice the reader will likely NOT lose.

DOES the reader feel his life is a tougher life because he has choices to choose?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
