    Yes, freedom rests in the ability not in the consequences. But in the examples mentioned the "free" choice leads to scenarios of less freedom: poor health, death and oppression under a tyrant. This questions not the existence but the worth of "free."

    To quote Frank Herbert, it has occurred to me more than once that holy boredom is sufficient reason for the invention of free will.
