Only if you've been conditioned by your life's experiences to be masochistic. The question is what "would" you choose, not what "could" you choose.

BS! The fact is we have choice. The choice may have desired or undesired consequences. The consequences are not the issue.

For example, Hitler later regretted his choice for 22 June 1941. Big Grin

Moist robots. At least, according to Scott Adams. The concept says that in the present moment we really don't have free will, that almost all we think do and say right now is predetermined by prior programming. Our genetics, our upbringing, our prior experiences etc all play into it. And so the only free will we truly have is to attempt to develop thoughts and patterns now that will 'program' our future thoughts, words and actions.
