Free in which occurred in the world is

Free will and determinism
has their similarities but most importantly they both differ in
various ways. Determinism is a term which reaches beyond measures. It states
that overall events in which occurred in the world is due to past events or in
the occurring one. The life in which we are living also known as reality is pretty much designed for us in
other words its already “pre-existent” or “pre-determined”. So, therefore anything getting involved can’t involve itself into the existence. The perception of
the universe and the world we exist in is already saying that the current dilemma comes from prior experience. After many causes
if the same one continues to happen then there is a bigger chance that it may happen again. The issue that we come across with is that the freedom for us humans is solely
an illusion. This also conflicts with indeterministic point of
view of the human action. This is the view that the act, or some type of event that
is beneficial upon the act isn’t caused at all. To clear most of this up we must
make a large assumption about ourselves or the person performing the act. Lately
in black neighborhoods there has been nothing but big misconceptions which then
leads up to someone getting shot. The man performing the act if he so happened
to be responsible for what he has done then during the time of the shooting whatever
at that moment he chose to do would’ve been totally up to him. I could also
make the scenario be where both could’ve been true like together he could’ve let
the shot ring out and self-control could’ve taken place and he could’ve refrained
himself from firing it. If this is true, then even though he did fire the shot there
would’ve been another resolution to the situation. “Against his will” is what
it would be called if the man didn’t find himself firing the shot. If a person
is responsible for causing an event or state of affairs, then the event or
affair was brought upon some act of the person and the action was a thing in
that person power whether to perform or not to perform. For the man actions
were often determined the man could still be such, if he had chosen otherwise
then he would’ve done the total opposite. Whatever the shooter may have saw if
he was religious and had a certain desire may have caused him to shoot his
shot. If he was being smart and logical about the situation his decision would’ve
been for him to not decide on committing the obscured crime. I can also say the
pipes in an apartment complex bust due to bad maintenance. If the maintenance
man would’ve done his job the right way, then maybe the pipes would’ve still
been intact. There is an argument saying if (a) and (b) are the exact same
thing, then (a) is just about consistent with determinism. Henceforward I can say
if the maintenance could’ve possibly done otherwise although he was caused to
do what he did. It’s safe to say determinism and moral responsibility is
totally in cahoots.

Free will is the side in which I’m gravitated more
onto. Free will is the power of acting upon your decision with no constraints of
obligation or fate. At free will the chose is yours. For example, making the
transition from high school to college you can choose whether to attend classes.
Its your responsibility to do the right thing but also be cautious of the
consequences that are followed behind. Freedom goes solely based off decisions and
action. As humans while performing a simple task such as helping a friend in
need we have an overall felling that our actions results from our own decisions
and we could’ve simply chose otherwise. I could’ve simply woke up and threw on heels
instead of sneakers but that was my chose. There wasn’t anyone dictating my decisions.
The main difference between this and determinism is that with free will we have
to take upon full responsibility whether it’s a reward or punishment for our
actions. Ones will is the freedom of action and in a sense our own decisions,
dominating desire or choice. A mother is obligated to do as she pleases when
she becomes one so for example it’s a brand-new day and its about that time she
goes and do her daily routine which is feed her child. She may say to herself, “It’s
time for me to feed the baby and although I may not have enough money to buy
the formula by any means I’ll find a way to make ends meet.” We as humans
should care about free will simply because its necessary for the free action.
The mother must decide first, or she may choose, to feed her child before she takes
initiative to proceed with her decision. If we just up and go assume that the
actions us humans take on that results from the balanced capacity of humans, we
go and see that the likelihood of free action depends on the opportunity of
free will. Humes and Hobbes would hold that the mother is free to feed her child
so long as nothing holds her back from carrying out her decision to feed the
baby and she has the freedom to not feed the child so long as nothing would compel
her to feeding her child if she decided not to. I take on my position in free
will strongly because anything that happens in your personal life happens simply
because you decided to take on that decision. There was a point in my life
where I had to make the hardest decision whether or not to either stay in New
York with my aunt or move back to Virginia with my mother and sisters. It tore me
apart because they were two different homes, yet it was something about each
one that attracted me to the each of them. I made an executive decision to go
and move with my mother. I contemplated for so long and I always had those what
ifs moment. At the end of the day nobody but myself had to conclude.

Some would argue that we don’t have free will. For example,
getting incarcerated may be where their point can become valid. Robbing a bank automatically
tells a person that there is a consequence that’s about to come their way, so
it should be expected right then and there that the freedom to do as they
please are taken way. Once your locked away the system can do as they please
and you’re under someone else’s rules. Your no longer obligated to do the
things you want to do. I personally feel as though that of course bad can happen
but your actions leading up to certain things can all determine that factor. If
I know I want money and don’t have it I have two decisions which is either
getting it in a legal way as in having a job or choosing to get it in an
illegal way which is either selling weed or robbing. Being human I know which
is morally right and morally wrong, so I shouldn’t be surprised on the outcome
of the decision I make. If I decide to go and get a job and make my money I
know for a fact I’m not in a sticky situation or at risk of getting in trouble
with the law. In life nothing is predetermined, I feel as though everything
happens for a reason not saying those who believe in determinism are wrong I
just strongly believe we all have a purpose in life and whichever way you
choose to live it is based off your verdict.
