A culture where choice is limited

Living in the USA we have all experienced the pleasures of personal choice.  No we don’t get to pick our parents but once we get to decision making age, we step out and use this privilege.  We can choose our education level or pursue working with our hands in the trades. We can choose what career we desire. We can choose where we live. We choose who we associate with.  Think of a culture where these and many others are decided for you?  Sound outrageous?  A subtle or undetectable shift in culture can put a society on a path to limited choice.
