Social disguise of ambiguity
Other Names: Social camouflage of individual effect
Nature: Society creates images that cover up the fact that human beings in living and deciding, always do so in ambiguity. The belief that ambiguity does not exist creates a sense that there are no consequences to one's decisions beyond the perceived one's, a feeling of omnipotence about choice and a belief in simplistic "either/or" choices. Man's freedom is thus taken away.
Problem Type: F: Fuzzy exceptional problems
