While I can agree and see your point ( the OP's ) in this matter, I at the same time am reminded of a person I know dearly well, Myself, I make so
many decisions that are emotion based or many would say Gut feeling, those are my decisions, since I feel it and I decide to go with it. At the same
time, free will is the act of doing an action freely from one's own thought process, others can influence your thought process, but you ultimately
have to carry out the action relation to said thought, giving you sole ownership of said action, you can choose to put that gun, that cigarette, that
fist, the brake petal down or never to of touched it at all, or even several thousands of actions before hand and completely alter the whole outcome.
I see where you are going, but we ultimately are walking biological action filters. The sum of our lives equal the amount of free will we have used.
Kinda like our name is our virtue.
To force another into doing something is to of tricked them in one way or another and that's another issue ( deception ) which is to falsely inform
someone, but you can be falsely informed ( deceived ) and still feel " weird " and decide not to carry on with being deceived. What's a better lie
detector than another human?
Free Will is alive and well, didn't have breakfast with em this morning, but instead drank red fruit punch, oh yeah
gotta love it... next I dunno
maybe I will continue to be random for the next 50 years, good day
