Where there is choice, there is no freedom. And choice exists only when the brain is confused. When the brain is clear, then there is no choice, but only direct perception and right action.*
'I will not choose,' Godard's woman seems to say, when the choice is a not a meaningful choice at all. Give me a whole life and I will not need 'choice,' she seems to say and Life sponsored by Marlboro or some other Corporate entity slaps her for it. That was Godard's indictment of modern man in 1979. How will we respond to that today?
