The dictionary I consulted (www.dictionary.com) gives 6 definitions for fate, and this is only the noun form.
Many people think of fate thus:
A prisoner in chains-
A victim of venomous fate. " -- Rush, Freewill
What they don't often consider is this, from the same song:
"If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice."
What people consider fate is often just our choice, they just call it fate to avoid the responsibility. But we do have the responsibility of choice, even if we choose not to decide. This is free will.
