I learned an interesting perspective from a friend on the recall this weekend. "Why is this such a problem?" he wondered. "I mean, this is a democracy. You have freedom of choice. Boom - here are your choices! And more choices is always better than less, right?"
I recalled a quote by Sigmund Freud in relation to this: "Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility."
