I want to believe we have found some common ground here!Do you have a point ?
That is the point.
I want to destroy a long standing wall between all of us!
I hate that it took this long to find common ground! (If we have... I hope.)
I don’t want to be your enemy!
And I don’t want you to be mine!
This is not an attack. This is simply my opinion.
I do not like the term “freewill” because it carries the connotation that there is no limit on the will at all. I think you, as well as I, can agree that the will is not “free” in the sense that there is no limits at all on it which, in my opinion, makes the phrase “freewill” misleading.
Would you agree that many, if not most, who use this term, today, do not even consider the fact that “free” does not mean completely free without any limits at all, but this is the connotation it carries in the world today.
This is my opinion but I believe this is the main difference between your Soft and their Hard Libertarian Freewill. I believe, at least in this point, you are closer to the truth than they are. The HLF-ers use the term “freewill” to mean “choose other than” which connotes complete freedom with no limits at all!
But your SLF-ism by definition rightly denies this implication by stating that the “character” sets the limit for the will...
...but the title “Soft libertarian Freewill” still carries the connotation simply by the phrase “freewill” in it.
This is still my opinion but I believe you would be better off distinguishing your definition from theirs, not by changing “hard” to “soft” but changing “freewill” to “voluntary will” instead!
At least “Libertarian Voluntary Will”, as a title, could take at least one brick out of the wall.
I don’t believe the word “voluntary” carries the same connotation as the word “free”!
That’s simply my opinion though!
What are your thoughts?
