Individuals have two types of freedoms that they need to manage: inner freedom, in order to expand who they are, and external freedom, to expand what they do.
External freedom needs inner freedom to exist. Nobody can have the power of external freedom without having achieved inner freedom first. The pathway towards external freedom requires having achieved inner freedom and being able to manage time.
External freedom implies assuming the responsibility to do while being conscious of the actions that need to be done to adapt to the environment. This is the definition of free will which is a basic condition for democratic environments.
Free will can only be exerted by individuals who are adapted to the environment, have assumed a responsibility in the environment and are conscious of their actions. Freewill cannot mean doing what one wants to do. It necessarily implies the integration of the needs of all the participants in an environment. Absolute free will is an anarchic / individualistic behavior.
NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in using the unicist logical approach in complexity science research and became a private global decentralized leading research organization in the field of human adaptive systems. It has an academic arm and a business arm.https://www.unicist.org/talents/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/turi-1.pdf
