The first level was about if we have free will or not. Now the 2nd and 3rd level for your undivided attention is sole about free intent and free
1. Do rational persons of man have free intent? Or are our intensions not free, but bond and are not selectable by will?
2. Do rational persons of man have free desire? Or are our desires not free, but bond and are not selectable by will?
3. Can you, with your will, bypass your intent and your desire? Or does your intent and your desire bypass your will to flee them hands down?
4. Is there only so long that we may put off our acting upon our intent and desire, if intent and desire hold us in a bond that remains, returns,
and/or rises without choice in our manner-nature?
The topic is important because maybe ppl who do certain things (that are likable or dislikable or hateable) cant fight to not do them. If this is the
case, then should, say, a rapist (one who would rape and have raped) be not found guilty because of the nature of their non-free intent or non-free
desire? Or should the public's dislikable/hateable ones, based on their behavior/personality, be SURELY contained or eliminated in a way that does
not subject them to punishment? If you're thinking containment, then wouldnt that still be punishment that would make them go miserably crazy or go
suicidal, since containment would keep them away from acting upon their non-free intent and non-free desire?
