Professional COMM 2/4: Bob Dylan on freedom

"No one is free, even the birds are chained to the sky.” - Bob Dylan

Do you think it is true that no one is free? This is a big question in philosophy; can we be free? Some would argue that our circumstances trap us in a kind of 'web of limited posibility' OR that the universe behaves in a predetermined way (follow knowable rules) and so we are really never acting totally freely. Do you feel free? How would you go about trying to convince me that you are?
