I am reasoning that freedom is
"the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint."
Crime is, by this definition, an act of free will. A "crime" does not have to be murder; a crime could be tying you shoes if the government decreed it. If you physically can do something, and someone else says not to do it, couldn't you still do it? Even in movies like "The Purge," where the government says that crime is legal, there is no difference in the number of crimes, they're just concentrated. Even where action is limited by government, government is free to act, so freedom still exists for them?
People in the news say how their freedoms are being taken away, but I think that freedom, by definition, can never be taken away. Otherwise, people couldn't break law, America wouldn't have formed, and the Bastille wouldn't have been stormed. Given freedom of will is considered intrinsic to humans, is a human without free will logically impossible?
