Because freedom implies lack of influence or coercion involving choices.
Since every action has a consequence, you don't have true freedom to make any choices...you have limited freedom.
If you had true freedom, you could go to Denny's and still visit Ihops. But since you only have 20 minutes to eat, you can only choose one. Or since
you only have $15, you can only go to one. Or since you like grits and only one place serves them, you can only go to one.
This applies to every decision you make. You walk on the other side of the street, you miss seeing something. You choose to leave five minutes early,
you miss the beautiful lady walking in, or you miss getting caught in a robbery.
There is no true freedom. True freedom is the ability to make any choice at any time without losing anything.

Karma? I never mentioned karma. You walk to one side of the street, and the equal and opposite reaction is lack of presence on the side where you
would overhear a conversation regarding an awesome sale at an electronics store.
You just lost that opportunity...unless you happen to see it on the side of the street you just walked to. In which case, you walk in and buy a radio,
then walk out with 12 dollars gone from your pocket. In true freedom, you wouldn't have had to pay for that radio.
True freedom is choice without consequence.
