A life devoted to freedom is a constant battle.
Every day I’m given choices. You might think this the essence of freedom, but you’d be wrong.
Yes, the choices themselves are freedom, but the moment you choose one, the others disappear; you are no longer free.
So to preserve maximum freedom, one simply must not make any choices. Except, not choosing is in itself a choice, and again obliterates all the other possible choices.
The secret is putting off choices. Deferred enrollment, "I’ll tell you tomorrow," that sort of thing.
How does the drabble end? I’ll get to that later.
