Infinitely boundless are the freedoms of the West, so much that I am inspired to qualify and quantify them, not just to bask in the knowledge of its existence, but to attempt to convince the rest of the world of how they too can become a free utopia by becoming acolytes of our ways.
Let us first discuss food. Let’s say someone gets hungry and wants to get some food. Well, he will have so many choices! He can hop over to MacDonald’s and buy a Big Mac, fries, and soda. Don’t feel like MacDonald’s? Well, you can drive over to Burger King and get a Whopper with fries and soda! Not interested? Run over to Taco Bell, or Kentucky Fried Chicken, or Carl’s Jr., or Del Taco, or Wendy’s, or Popeye’s Chicken, or Pizza Hut, or Domino’s Pizza! We are so free that we have dozens of restaurant choices!
Now, let’s consider television. Let’s say you want some entertainment; well, you can flip on the cable or satellite television and watch MTV! Not a fan? How about HBO! Not intrigued? Flip on Fox Network instead, or NBC, or Nickelodeon, or Lifetime, or PBS, or the Discovery Channel, or CBS, or ABC! The choices are endless!
Now let’s consider liquors. Let’s say a Westerner wants some extra hard entertainment. Well, he can purchase a bottle of Jack Daniels. Not interested? How about Goldschlager, or Hennessey, or Crown Royal! You have around one hundred choices! True Western freedom!
Tired of you wardrobe? Well, you will have a field-day picking your clothes! There is a plethora of brand choices: Levi’s, Dockers, Versace, Armani, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target, Lee, Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, and many more!
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Just think of the dozens of candies one can choose from, the huge volume of movies to choose from, the large variety of cigarette brands to smoke, the variety of car brands and models to select, the variety of hairstyles to sport, the variety of nail polish colors to wear as well as other makeup options, the variety of sunglasses to buy, the variety of video games to play, the diversity of sodas to drink, the color options for your bed sheets, the dozens of hip-hop and rock & roll bands to select from, the plethora of Nike sneaker colors and styles to invest in, and so forth. The level of freedom in the West is mind-boggling!
Of course, the most mind-boggling fact of all is not our freedom, but the fact that China too can possess our level of freedom! Quintessential freedom is not to be exclusively owned by the West, but is for the rest of the world too - you just have to be willing to embrace it.
