The definition of Acting freely
	5 relevant considerations

(This is only the partial sketch of a full analysis. Our aim is to motivate the
discussion of Rousseau.) 

1. acting without coercion
That is,  Making genuine choices

2. But we always act for reasons except in special cases
	Can answer the question: 'Why did you do that', when we act freely,
I drank because I was thirsty

3. So ask- Do the reasons compel us ?
	If so, in that sense we are never free

Does thirst compel me to drink
	I say 'I couldn't help myself' - that seems to admit that I am not free

4. Still there is an obvious difference between accepting reason which is
'internal' i.e. in our minds and being forced by external authority
	the former is a reason that makes sense to me
My reason
My free action is part of a life plan I have chosen

5. We are free when the compelling reasons are internal 
They are reasons we accept 
	I act freely doing what I think is right

I teach the class and students show up for the exam
Are you free not to take the exam?
	Obviously!- for some people don't attend	

You are free to act otherwise but then suffer the consequences which such that
you want to avoid them

You are free not to take the exam
	But not free to avoid penalty for not taking it.
