Which goes to prove once again that lexicographers are not Gods and in fact know little about politics and less about philosophy. It always amazes me when people look to the dictionary as the ultimate authority in settling deep questions. In general we don't we look in a dictionary to learn how to communicate, instead lexicographers observe how we communicate to learn how to write their book, sometimes they get it wrong and usually it's circular. Free will is liberty and liberty is free will, not very illuminating.
