  1. I have an answer so far, I'm just not sure how to expand it and make it between 300-500 words.

    My Answer so far: Yes Chapter 8: "The Case against Free Will" in Rachels, and the videos on the Stanford Prison and Milgram experiments offer a convincing case that free will is an illusion. Can you really do what you want? In reality, there are consequences and rules and the people watching over you and telling you things are supposed to do and it takes a lot of guts to go against those rules in order to truly follow free will. I think there are a lot of complications in place, in order to follow your free will, that inhibits a lot of people from doing so.
