76. Condemned to be Free: Embracing the Responsibility and Excitement of Freedom

Updated: Mar 24, 2023

As William Search theorized in his books "Why" and "Conversations with ChatGPT: Exploring the Theory of Morality and Existence," the reason why humans exist is morality. In this context, the concept of being "condemned to be free" by Jean-Paul Sartre holds an important place.

Sartre's idea that human beings have no choice but to make choices implies that we are always confronted with the need to make decisions, and are ultimately responsible for the consequences of our actions. This can be both a challenging and exciting prospect, depending on our own perspectives and choices as human beings.

On one hand, the responsibility and uncertainty of freedom can be overwhelming for some. They may feel anxious or fearful of making the wrong decision and may struggle to take full responsibility for their actions. On the other hand, others may find the ability to shape their own lives and destinies exhilarating. They may embrace their freedom as a source of excitement and possibility.

Regardless of our individual perspectives, being human means having the ability to make choices and the freedom to decide how we respond to that ability. We are not limited or determined by outside forces, and have the power to create our own paths in life.

In conclusion, Sartre's concept of being "condemned to be free" is a reflection of the idea that humans have no choice but to make choices. While this can be challenging, it also allows us the freedom to shape our own lives and destinies. Ultimately, the responsibility and uncertainty of freedom are an integral part of being human, and we must each determine how we respond to this ability to make choices.
