: : Hm, or less of all of those (health, freedom, more individuation, religious freedom, etc.) -- can result lessening of free will

: I've looked at it more from the inside, trying to see when the individuum has lesser chances to make use of its free will.

Then of course it can never have any limit at all.

it's important you define free will.

then reduce it to it's component parts.

then see how/if yo may alter any one of them.

In the sense I think you mean it....absolute free will is impossible (that i know of).

For this reason.

that it would have no restriction.

you are talking the old concept of ehat was known as 'God'...it's still used in the USA.

At that level 'God has no limits' is the prefered maxim


But these are just games.

In human terms one has so little self knowledge, that unconscious forces overwhelm our rational ends.
