What does wanting know? We know what we want, but we don't know/care what we ought to want, and we know know how to want what we ought to want, even if we know what that is. We cannot control our wanting. We cannot control what we think is important, and we cannot force ourselves to change our mind about what we think is important. And we talk about "freedom of the will." We can will what we want to will, but we cannot will what we ought to want to will. How free is that? What governs our choices? What is directing our desires? What is guiding our boat on its path through the sea? How free are we to not do what we want to do and to do something else (What needs to be done, for instance) instead? How free are we to be who we need to be, doing what needs us to do it, what needs to be done, whether we want to or not?
