Our free will is very limited, we do thing based on our subconcious compulsive behaviour, because of instincts, because of group think and sheeple, all described in psychology.Helandhighwater wrote:Free will Nazism!
I disagree with the OP there is a growing movement of people (on many forums I am a member of, although I will admit that mostly people tend to be free will compatible if you'll pardon the pun) who think free will is impossible, sure they haven't defined it properly, don't really have an science to back it up, or at least any science anyone would accept. But just like the Nazis in the soup shop they get to dictate to others.
Seriously though it's an unresolved question, I seldom meet anyone who can coherently argue anything on the subject that would denote otherwise. But then no soup for you, because you say so? What sort of system of logic is that? I'll go to another shop and have fucking oxtail, there's plenty of soup for everyone, even if I am not sure I freely chose it.
Ask professional marketings campaigners and spin doctors, how they easily can influence our will.
Only very few people such as eccentrics, pioneers, pshychopaths and others who partially stands out of group think, has greater amount of free will, but still only partially.
