Free will is more vital than freedom.
Prisoners understand this concept quite clearly. The courts have taken away their freedom by placing them in jail cells, but no one can lock up a person’s free will. We each think our own thoughts in our own heads and are free to make our own choices. An inmate, who by definition has been denied freedom, still may choose how he views his situation and what he might do to survive his confinement. These choices are available to all of us, no matter how much freedom we possess. In the end, freedom is contingent upon many factors, but free will knows no bounds.
