To claim that one is free is preposterous. To claim that one is not reined in by something is nothing more than a lie.
As much as the bit about us having free will is true, possessing it is a whole different ball game compared to having real freedom. Now, I could go on all night about this but as I wouldn’t want you to get bored of my arguments, let me say this: We are governed by instinct. And instinct, as we all know, is one fucked-up master. It calls us to its bedside, asking us to do things ranging from the mundane, to the extreme. And just when you thought it had given out the most vile of its orders, you realize it’s only getting started.
We are chained to it, each action we do is created only when it tells us to do so. Not a second passes without us being subjected to its whims and caprices.
Free? I dare say not.
