All are always able. How about all those in NK fighting back or dying? The Kim dynasty would die overnight. Goes back to the original statement. :)
I’ll hold that as true. The communal experience does not enslave those who partake unless they allow it.
How does one know they're enslaved if they've never actually tasted freedom?
Thing is, you don't know what you don't know.
If you were born there with no window out, perhaps you would think you were born into the luckiest, wealthiest nation and everyone else was suffering.
Just a thought...
Been to China lately?
They're nominally free and you wouldn't believe the shit that goes down there with a group full of witnesses, none would dare question the official explanation of an event.
Ask a Chinese citizen about their social credit system, they'll tell you it isn't just great, but it's necessary and just. It's damned spooky in all honesty.
That's true, there were child soldiers inclined to fight in Nazi Germany. But whether or not that's their fault is a bit of a moral dilemma.
I believe there is no such thing as free will. That's not fate. You have choices but they are limited by past experiences and circumstances both past and present. Genetics and epigenetic development play a roll as well.
Because u r wut u is.
If you aren't a psychopath or sociopath you will never rise to the top in either politics or business. If you aren't born to wealth you probably won't either.
Hard work and honesty will not get you to the top. It probably won't even get you to the middle anymore.
I almost agree with you. But that would cause a bit more depression then previously prescribed. I’ll use a little free will every time I get a chance.
With all the crap we're bombarded with from the moment of birth I wonder if we ever actually get a chance.
Sorry, it had to be said
That’s true. Though I’ve got to have some faith in my own intentions. :)
yeah, me too.
dw if you bang your head on a wall I think you better be going to see a dr. for help instead of asking people on ami . Good luck you may be in a batter mood tomorrow
That's the biggest pile of horse manure I've heard today.
Therefore you believe completely in fate? You believe life is dictated by by the simple whims and actions of others? I hope you are wrong. I really do. I’d like to think that my own actions and thoughts at least dictate choices in my own destiny. But to each their own. :)
Whether we think we can or we think we can't, either way we will be right.
I get very tired of advice givers assuming that everything is my fault. Sometimes you have to at least consider that you are surrounded by jerks and idiots.
