My view on free will.

To begin with, free will is an amazing thing. You get to say what you want, do what you want, when you want. Who can say that isn't the best thing. It's about what you do in the moment that you are given. You might not wake up tomorrow. What are you going to that day before you die and that's just something to think about.

Next, My view on free will in war. If you don't pull the trigger, could you live with your fellow soldier lay there dying in your arms and it would be your fault. No, it would be really hard I believe. Don't lose yourself, find yourself.

Free will is what you make it, as Joe Dirt would say. Life unfortunately has to be about making decisions at the right place and time. If you make the wrong decision you could end up in the wrong place at the wrong time.

You can't regret decisions but it is your free will to do so. Many live their whole life wishing and wanting, but never dream enough to go get it.

  1. Your definition of free will is a little unrealistic, but if we have to err on this issue I guess I'd favor erring in the presumption that we have significant choices to make every day of our lives. The occasional "moral holiday" is still advised. No one ever does everything (s)he want whenever (s)he wants, but we can all try to decide what that would and should be.
