No, Really, What is Free Will?

FK – According to mainstream christianity ‘free will’ is being able to ‘choose’ between eternal torture or eternal slavery. Of course the morons don’t call it that. But if someone is threatening to torture you for not obeying them they consider you to be a slave. Christians and many over versions of ‘humans’ don’t mind being slaves. Every prez election cycle proves this.

Real ‘free will’ simply involves being able to choose a possible outcome, not guaranteed, that you actually prefer, say, living long enough to buy your own starship with a holodeck. In the ‘real’ world it simply means being able to choose which Earthly government or which corporation or both treats you like a jackass on a daily basis or deciding to say ‘screw it’ and ending up on the evening propagandacast because you gave an asshole or group of assholes what they so truly deserve.

Of course if you’re rich and highly educated and an excellent speaker with lots of charisma you might be able to convince lots of brain-dead sheeple and a few otherwise cowardly ‘conservatives’ and ‘libertarians’ and other such types to follow you and fight long enough to overthrow the ‘world order’ and install a system where everyone is as ‘free’ as they can possibly be. Good luck with that. The ‘human’ race isn’t really ready for that yet, because real ‘free will’ would scare the shit out of them.

So don’t try to over-complicate it.
