Essay on “Freedom versus Destiny” Complete Essay for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation and other classes.

Freedom versus Destiny


Freedom means right of individuals to act as they choose. In this sense, it is frequently called “individual liberty”. The term is also employed in connection with the achievement of sovereignty by a people; when so used, it is called “national liberty”. Although in these traditional senses liberty may be specifically civil or political, the modern concept further connotes a generalized body of rights, such as the right to economic opportunity and to education. Because completely unrestricted freedom of action would make peaceful human existence impossible, some restraints on freedom of action are necessary and inevitable. Virtually all codes of action recognize this basic limitation. Liberty is defined in such codes as the right of individuals to act without restraint as long as their actions do not interfere with the equivalent rights of others; acts that do violate the rights of others are rejected. A perfect balance between the right of an individual to act without undue interference and the need of the community to restrain freedom of action has often been projected in theory but has never been achieved. The restraints imposed throughout most of history have been oppressive. History has been described as society’s progress from a state of anarchy, through periods of despotism during which liberty was nonexistent or restricted to one privileged group, to a state of liberty for every individual under democratic governments; history has thus been shaped under this view by the natural desire of all people to be free. 

People like to believe that they have the freedom to choose what they want to do, however it is quite the opposite. Freedom has its limitations to what people are allowed to do, but predestination has no limits of any kind. Freedom is in fact used to cover up predestination, to keep people content in following absurd rules. Without predestination, how do we know what the weather will be like, or if the sun rises, or if someone will stop at a red light. You just do, common things that we think are just “common sense,” are really not, people stop at those red lights in order to sustain their life, not by their choice of, I don’t want a ticket. Predestination makes the most sense of the two. There is no other way to explain things such as, people who grew up poor, yet somehow managed to create their own company and become multimillionaires. They were destine to create that company, it was not freedom. Freedom wouldn’t have given them the opportunity to show their ideas, it only allows them to create them. Predestination explains almost ninety per cent of what happens in the world, from birth to death, and even pure luck. Freedom cannot cause you to have “good luck” in a day, it is predestination which brings you to this “good luck.” Freedom is a fallacy that takes over the human race like a parasite. It is used to cover up what people do not want to believe. Murderers had the “choice” to kill that person, or were it just their time to die according to their destiny. In this case, freedom is used to make it easier on the people of the dead person, rather than having them face the truth that it was just their loved one’s/friend’s/ etc. time to die. It is also said that freedom controls not just physical actions, but creativity in the mind. If that’s so, then why isn’t everyone born with the ability to draw or paint or make something with the same skill? A simple answer, they were not born for that purpose, that skill has no part in their destiny. Although predestination is in fact quite lenient on criminals, it is the truth. Perhaps with predestination in place, it is the world’s Way of thinning out the population. Freedom and predestination are not two separate things, but work together to keep the world a more pleasant place, by allowing people to believe that things were “not supposed to be” the way they are, rather than taking the truth that things just happen for a reason. That, that’s just the way it was meant to be.
