Are we pawns in the chess game of life. Are we of free will?

There is no such thing as freedom only LIFE in they art of war it is very crucial to never let the ideas of the enemy affect the people you are fighting for.

You do realize this was a quote from the Mel Brooks movie "Blazing Saddles"
"Mongo just pawn in the chess game of life"
Richard Pryor was one of the writers of this movie and wrote that line.

As long as I have a morphine drip, a TV remote and can reach the extension cord on my oxygen pump, I have free will and a god damn choice!
Science is truth, God is truth, therefore

God is Science.

All religions were written by men, to control the hearts and minds of other men.

Basically, are we in control of our lives? We think we are, act it out, yet we are accountable to "the Man". Do the backtracking here. Most of it financial, cause we all have to live and all have to pay. Everything we survive on is based on money...Everything, really. This is my belief. I'm not asking anyone to agree, I'd just like opinions. That's all

I love the illusion of free will, even if it is an illusion.

I love movies. This existence feels like a movie to me; sometimes it's feels well-written and directed and seemingly meaningful, other times it feels like a 1 and 1/2 star adventure that I've seen before, and I already know the stupid ending...
