You rightly point out the problems which would arise if free will proves to be illusory. If we are not responsible for any action, then concepts such as sin, criminal liability and punishment are nugatory. But if that were so, anarchy would result and to protect itself and its members, society would, instead of punishing wrongdoers, be obliged to seclude, or even kill, persons deemed to present a danger. I think I would rather stick with the idea of free will.
