  • True/False: The more certainty there is, the less freedom there is?

False - the more you know the wider your options to choose from. But freedom only exists in the mind of the free. Your freedom is limited by the extent you're willing to obey, if laws or social conventions are unjust they should be disobeyed.

Subjective. If its certain I will go to jail then I will experience less freedom... when in jail if it is certain that I will soon be released then I will experience more freedom upon my release.

I don't see how they're related at all. Certainty is empowering. It allows us to move ahead with confidence. If we're uncertain, say about which way to drive to get to Atlanta, then we're stuck, really - but certain of that or not, we can still make coffee this morning - I don't see the relationship at all.

The more certainty there is the more comfortable you are with your freedom.

The certainty is that there is none. It`s subject to change and seen as such by the open-minded. :)

Answer #8 | 08/02 2014 09:08
true.. its just like rules or laws. when you know all the laws/rules you dont really have as much freedom as you did when you didnt know them
Answer #9 | 08/02 2014 09:26
True. Certainty blinds one to all other options. Not sure how one could call that a "widening" of options...but I'd love to hear it.
