Or maybe there are other factors we don't control which affect how we react.

Our freedom, and thus our free will, has limits. Circumstances dictate that some beings are more limited than others.
The internet is a source of great knowledge, and ultimately more freedom. There are those who seek to limit such freedom. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyber_Inte ... ection_Act
The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) is a proposed law in the United States which would allow for the sharing of internet traffic information between the U.S. government and certain technology and manufacturing companies. The stated aim of the bill is to help the U.S Government investigate cyber threats and ensure the security of networks against cyber attack.[
Some critics saw CISPA as a second attempt at strengthing digital piracy laws after the anti-piracy Stop Online Piracy Act became deeply unpopular. Intellectual property theft was initially listed in the bill as a possible cause for sharing web traffic information with the government, though it was removed in subsequent drafts.
The legislation was introduced on November 30, 2011 by U.S. Representative Michael Rogers (R-MI) and 111 co-sponsors. It was passed in the House of Representatives on April 26, 2012. President Obama has argued that the bill lacks confidentiality and civil liberties safeguards and has threatened to veto it.
