I assume there was/is some deeper question you were intending to ask. Cus all I'm hearing is an echo chamber of yes, affirmative.

I'm going to convince you that you don't have free will :)

But it will have to wait until later, expect a few more posts. I'm not playing my whole hand yet

I thought something similar and have already began preparing my counter argument since I think I know where you're going. Also I knew I had that sinking urge to shout at the top of my lungs ITS A TRAP!

Yes we have free will....with limitations.

Other peoples free will can counteract our own.

Ronald Reagan on Torture
I agree with Reagan. Also, the torture didn't save anyone, it was used on over 20 people that were wrongfully held, and as the report makes clear they were torturing people when they had no idea if the victim had any useful information at all. I also read the rest
