Do orcs have any choice in life? They do exhibit choices [In reply to] Can't Post

within the limits provided by their maker.

Tolkien stated:

"They were indeed so corrupted that they were pitiless, and there was no cruelty or wickedness that they would not commit; but this was the corruption of independent wills, and they took pleasure in their deeds. They were capable of acting on their own, doing evil deeds unbidden for their own sport; or if Morgoth and his agents were far away, they might neglect his commands."

"We are only held back from the things that we truly desire in life, by the choices we make on a daily basis. Most choose to make excuses and blame others for their poor results in life or in business and remain where they are right now, not realizing that if they would ask a few more questions about their previous choices, they might be able to propel themselves to exactly the amount of success they desire. Notice that making the excuses and blaming others is also a choice."
