Postmodern Hymn: Free Will



I love it when a song I've heard before suddenly leaps out as a revelation. That's what happened with the chorus to "Free Will" by Rush:

"You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice. 
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice. 
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill; 
I will choose a path that's clear- 
I will choose Free Will."

I don't so much feel like I don't have free will, but I don't particularly live with the agency that free will promises. I have so many cases of indecisiveness in any given day that it's ridiculous; I think this song may become my new mantra!
