The trouble with free will

Lucidly illustrated by xkcd:

"Hell is ... free will for other people!"


  1. A fond Trek quote:

    "One of the problems with giving people free choice, Commander, is that sometimes they make the wrong choice."
    - Odo

    Or something to that effect :)

  2. The more I watch the Democrats flounder, the less free will I think they should have.

  3. You said it, brother. It's like watching the Lions play the Patriots or, for that matter, anyone else.

  4. It's like they think reconciliation is the One Ring or something, and they'll be corrupted forever if they seize it. Naturally I cheer for the party that is *afraid* to exercise power. Figures.
