Why choose absolute freedom?

Whatever we do, we do because of something. Usually, all our motives can be reduced to a simple wish for happiness. We chose ‘A’ because we like it more than ‘B’. We would like to choose ‘C’, but we have no courage, so we chose ‘D’ because when we summarize all the pluses and minuses, it seems that we will gain more.
