Atmananda “weighs” in:
WHAT ARE FREE CHOICE AND FREE WILL?
“They are both contradictions in terms. Freedom cannot have anything beside it; so choice is out of the question. The real ‘I’ principle alone is, always, free. If anything stoops to choose, it is the ego that does it. The ego is itself not free, its choice cannot be free and it cannot help another to be free. The same applies to free will. They are both misnomers.”
