Do We Have Too Much Choice?

In this new RSAnimate, Professor Renata Salecl explores the paralysing anxiety and dissatisfaction surrounding limitless choice. Does the freedom to be the architects of our own lives actually hinder rather than help us? Does our preoccupation with choosing and consuming actually obstruct social change?

Does choice make you indecisive and consequently, freezes you? Like choosing wine in a restaurant… expensive or cheap? Does either choice speak too loud?
