Freedom and law, ethics and morals according to Kant

Freedom
Kant defends responsibility and awareness of actions founding the causality of the will on the idea of freedom and attributing autonomy and independence from the sensitive world to reason.
Knowledge of natural or rational laws would regulate free actions between equally unforced people without forcing, careful not to harm, with wisdom and legality, without escaping responsibilities with cunning or thinking for themselves or in agreement with others.
In order to act in freedom, man even seeks motives to transgress, doubting and quibbling over any moral command contrary to self-love.
Yet God strengthens freedom, perfects morality, helps in success, requires free and responsible choices and actions and rewards individual efforts.
Providence leaves free to adhere to reason and to realize the good, while nature collaborates by animating the activity with interest for a purpose.
