The most common terms used are "free socialism", "free communism", "libertarian socialism", and "libertarian communism".
One cannot force someone else to do something freely. If 1 is true, then compatibilism is false.
If compatibilism is false, then we have libertarian free will. Therefore, we have libertarian free will from3.
It seems undeniable that if some agent has performed some act because he was forced to do so, then he did not do it of his own free will; he was not the originator of his action. I do not expect compatibilists to agree with this premise.
They may very well believe that 1 can be true and yet compatibilism also be true, and hence 2 would be false.
It could be claimed compatibilism only teaches that determinism and free will both are true and work together in some way. Whatever the cause in causal determinism, it is that cause, and not the agent, that is determining in a causal, not epistemological, sense that such an action should be performed.
In essence, he is forcing an action that is purported to be free. But then per 1 this is false. They could claim that while compatibilism is false, determinism is nonetheless true, so that libertarian free will is not possessed by anyone.
To this we might wish to consider that determinism of this sort can never be rationally affirmed. In that case, it is not that she has performed an act of free will or free thinking, but rather that whatever was the cause of her action ensured she would do the action.
In the same way, hard determinism surely cannot be rationally affirmed, for one did not reason to arrive at his conclusion, but was merely determined to repeat it.
But then it follows that we have at least some libertarianly free actions, and hence 3 is true. We live in a libertarianly free universe, and hence we are held under an incredible sense of responsibility, morally, to God. What will you do with this choice?
Choose to honor God, to be holy? Or choose to live in a state of rebellion against God? While this may work as a defense, it does not work as an account of free will.

The history of this phrase is that I was presenting a paper here at the University of Chicago on the “Save More Tomorrow” program, and a guy in the Economics Department was my discussant and he accused me of being a paternalist.
An examination of the possibilities for libertarian feminism, taking the feminist thought of the 19th century radical individualists as an example and a guide.
We find that the radical libertarian critique of statism and the radical feminist critique of patriarchy are complementary, not contradictory, and we discuss some of the confusions that lead many libertarians--including many libertarian.
James Harkin: Libertarian paternalism started life in a paper by two of America's most innovative economists, Cass Sunstein and Richard Thaler.
Its novelty was to move deftly beyond the stale. For his first paper using the database, Tabarrok decided to analyze the effect of federal regulation on “economic dynamism”—a catch-all term referring to the rate at which new businesses.
