    nah son it’s just the universe dictating your actions.

    I think you will find some of the things you mentioned in the op talked about in secular Buddhist literature. The illusion of consciousnesses and ego, the concept of no-self, emptiness etc. The Buddha was very analytical in his teachings.

    Sounds like a bunch of bullshit if there is no free will, release all prisoners and let them house in your home no free will and all.

    Criminals were predestined to commit their crimes, and society was predestined to lock them in cages for the rest of their lives.

    Determinism is a pointless philosophy unless you have the balls to be an anarchist amidst an established law and order.

    Fuck... I guess Antifa are the most enlightened among us.
