Wiggle room

I think an important measure of freedom in a society is how much wiggle room an individual has in his or her pursuit of happiness. What's changed in my lifetime is the environment in which wiggling, choices, can happen. The environment gets more defined by fewer people, it seems to me. Main Streets used to look very different across the country. Now they look more and more alike, no matter where you are. For those seeking variety in food, architecture, movie houses, less wiggle room.
