do we have the free will to choose not to have free will?

    Nope, we're responsible for what we do, mostly.

    No, we have free will and we're stuck with it.

    That's because "will" has to do with what we WANT, not with the results we get. We don't have the freedom to obtain our chosen results. I can't flap my arms and fly to the moon, and wanting to won't change that.

    I could try, though. I might end up in a mental hospital that way. Or the morgue, if I imagine jumping off a cliff will help.) Those wouldn't be what I freely willed, but they would be direct consequences of my exercise of free will, even so.

    There only seems to be 'free will.' In the end we will all return to God, in our mind, for a very simple reason. God being all powerful, will not let anything happen that he does not want to happen. We can dream of 'free will' all we want but we can't make it a reality.

    Free will does not even make sense as a concept, let alone exist.

    No except for compatibilism which is imho just semantics and not free will

  • This is bad semantics. You use "free Will" and "choose" as if they are different things. they are not.

  • Obviously. That's what the slavery of taxation, regulation and laws are all about. To some degree, we are all slaves of the State. It's not an awful thing, but, the State can be very abusive.

    Yes. There are limits, but yes. Obama cut that deal with his dungeon master.
