Forgetfulness is related not only to events from the past but also to capability to think ahead. Dementia in old age thus helps the sufferer to forget the future and so annihilates the anxiety related to his own mortality...The paradox is that the obsessive attitudes promoted by the ideology of late capitalism actually leave very little room for choice. The highly controlled individual who is constantly on guard, who dreads disorder and who is petrified by the thought of dying derives very little enjoyment from playing out the supposedly limitless possibilities of choice. He is in the grip of an anxiety about failing to be the ideal 'chooser'. So he invents ever new ways of restricting choice.
