From a young age Billy’s free will is almost mocked which better proves the thought process of the aliens. Billy is thrown to the bottom of the pool as a young child by his father to learn to swim in a “sink or swim” situation. Billy of course doesn’t know how to swim and finds himself at the bottom of the pool but he finds comfort in the bottom of the water; his free will to stay there is taken when he is rescued from the situation. Another instance where Billy’s free will isn’t considered is when Billy is drafted to the war where he shows that he is clearly unprepared for “He had no helmet, no overcoat, no weapon and no boots… He didn’t look like a soldier at all, he looked like a filthy flamingo” (Vonnegut 33). This description of pilgrim in the war showed that he did not belong in the war as he was unprepared for it.
