  • they do but not many get to use it

    Technically, you can be a free spirit and use your free will, but most likely it will not get you anywhere. There are a few exceptions for some people, as they are just gifted at what they do. Other people's free will be seen as not useful, and society will shun them. You have to follow the herd or just except being really poor.

  • Yes depends where

    Some people across the works indeed do have few will but, of course not all. Depending on where the person lives is a bug indicator as to if they have free will or if they don't. In an example would be like someone who lived in San Francisco in the United States against North Korea.

  • People really do have free will.

    People really do have free will. I believe that most people have the mindset to do anything that they want to do and when they want to do it. Living things everywhere face two problems: survival and reproduction. All species have to solve those basic problems or else go extinct. Humankind has an unusual strategy for solving them: culture. We communicate, develop complex social systems, engage in trade, accumulate knowledge collectively, create giant social institutions (governments, hospitals, universities, corporations). These help us survive and reproduce, increasingly in comfortable and safe ways.

  • People do not truely have free will

    It is a long time argument that people have the right to free will and everything that comes along with it, when it comes down to it we really do not have total free will. Free will is having the ability to do what one wants whenever one wants to and this is not true. People have laws and rules and regulations that keep us from ever having true free will. We need these regulations thought to keep us safe and to keep order.

  • Really have free will ?

    I don't believe that you really have free will because you have to live with rules and regulations and there are alot of them, we also have alot of things that people would never be accepting of and alot of people think that if we don't have rules society would tank

  • Social and Evolutionary Psychology Say No.

    Social and Evolutionary Psychology tell us that we are a product of two things: our genes and our environment. That is to say that certain things will be predetermined by genes (our temperament, for instance, has been shown to be heavily affected by our genes), while other things are determined by our environment, particularly while growing up. These things affect our psychology such that we perceive the world in a particular way, and that we think in a particular way. Assuming you had every scrap of information about a person, and were capable of doing the calculations and analyses involved, then you would be able to determine what choice said person would make in a given situation. If we can determine what exactly a person will do in any given situation, can you really claim that person to have free will? I would say no.
