Planning or chance?
Planning or chance? Random chaos or structured evens? It is strange to think back of several times in my 80 years, when an event changed the direction of my life. Sometimes that change was rapid but in others it took a while to realise change had happened. My life would have been very different without these events. I had, nor could ever have, any control over these events. They were decisions made, consciously or unconsciously, by other people. They involved people I know or knew and the interaction between these people and others I had never met. So, I was not consulted, not even informed at the time and yet they changed my life. So, the question has to be is freewill only freedom to choose how we act, or react, after learning of events that are controlled by others? Even the decisions and actions that affected my life, usually involved people who knew nothing about me. Or at least not anything truthful about me. So, are all these interactions, these decisions and activities, just random chance or planned by some divine entity? It seems that freewill allows some control over the consequences but not the cause. Consider a hypothetical example. If the government suddenly raise taxation on something I produce this inevitable reduces the demand and so my income is adversely affected, yet the government bureaucrats who manged this tax increase, had never consulted me, they did not know I existed as an individual, so nothing personal but their decision will have a big effect on me. My freewill is limited to deciding what to do; do I give up production? work harder to sell at increased price? try to reduce other costs to absorb the tax increase? So, I have some freewill but only over the effect not the cause.
