Do we have free will?

Would it really be a good thing? If we hace a choise then dousnt that mean we can choose to do bad things?
Woulndt it be easier if we were controlled?

Or do we have both Free Will and Destiny?

    Mar 23 2013: Is the fact that I am mentioning the beautiful, azure waters of Havasu Falls at the bottom of the Grand Canyon in Arizona, in a discussion of free will an example of free will in action, or was it predestined that you would post the question and I would respond thusly? Is all of life scripted and we are unable to do otherwise? Am I compelled by fate to harm another person, or can I freely, intelligently choose to do no harm? If there is no free will there is no responsibility.
