Summary
"Almost everyone agrees that the absence of free choice in an Orwellian oligarchy is the worst of all possible worlds. But what happens when the situation is reversed? What happens, that is, when so many trivial and meaningless choices inundate a culture like our own that the principle of freedom itself becomes devalued, much as the value of hard currency is threatened when counterfeit money floods an economy? In A Do-It-Yourself Dystopia: The Americanization of Big Brother, Steven Carter addresses this and many other issues in a wide-ranging search for hiddden oligarchies of the American self."--BOOK JACKET
