Sam Harris on Free Will & Determinism

"The role of luck in our lives appears decisive...this poses a problem"[for the way humans traditionally speak and think about social structure] -Sam Harris
Is Free Will a necessary fiction to organize human society even if it ignores the multitude of deterministic variables that many people are unaware of?
Free Will is not free from the strings of causal events outside the paradigm of the ego.
