Hi, my name is Khoi.

Thank you for your attention. I would be glad to have my essay checked if it is any good and looked over for any problems which need fixing (even minor ones). Criticism is absolutely welcome.

Subject: Some people believe that nowadays we have too many choices.

=

There is a belief is that we human beings now have too many choices in our life. The "choices" can be comprehended as the things available to us in our daily life like food, drink, necessities of all kinds and brands to more important things like occupation and living place. While to a certain degree that is correct but as a whole, I disagree with such thinking.

For the majority of those who live in developed countries or wealthy enough in less developed ones, it is true that there are many choices for us due to the advancement in society, technology, healthcare and the appearance of globalization. Just less than 500 years ago, most of the food we ate were seasonally and locally produced only, while anything foreign and had to be transported from far away were incredibly expensive. But now foreign products, some sent from half a world away, are not only easy to find but also relatively cheap. Same thing applies for other goods and merchandise.

But such belief is far from being fact on a macroscopic scale. Right now, more than a billion people are suffering from extreme poverty and starvation. The things they eat, the work they do are not only cruelly limited but also of terrible quality and condition. "Choices" are a luxury for them. And we are only talking about the far extremity here and not accounting for those who although live in slightly better condition but the mentioned belief doesn't apply to them. How can we say that "nowadays we have too many choices" when one out of seven people have barely any choice in their life? This is the main problem with such thoughts and beliefs: They are mainly gut feelings or take no consideration of the majority.

In conclusion, while it is true that for those who are more privileged, more choices are available for them than ever before, but looking at the whole picture, things have not changed much.
