People often say they have no choice when faced with a dead end. They say they have no choice but to take the one direction available, which is often a wrong one.
When they say that remark, they must understand that they have to take the blame for the consequences of what they will do.
However, truth is far from the often-circulated concept that man has no choice.
We do have choices. As long as you have rights to protect, you have a choice. When rights are denied, then so are options. When you let your rights be denied, this too is an option.
Just look at slaves. Most of them obey not out of willingness, but because they have no rights; and thus, they have no choice but to obey. Yet, in another light, it is really their choice that they are slaves. Even not having a choice is still a choice.
Some are willing slaves. They voluntarily throw their rights away because they believe the person to whom they render service to is worthy of treating them as such.
Some simply accept their lot as slaves, and that is their choice. Some refuse to be slaves and choose to assert their rights. All these are choices.
