Same here. The notion has always been completely absurd to me.

I hesitate to think that there could be any meaningful connection between this position and morality, though.. (This is regarding only what I read from their Wikipedia page, I had never heard of Derk till now). I mean, free will “exists” as much as any other social/mental construct, right? How can morality be affected by the acknowledgement of its constructedness?

I think it changes the way that we should go about dealing with responsibility. Instead of people being responsible for their actions, we hold them responsible for their actions. Which for me means a careful accountability process aimed at helping the people unlearn the harmful behaviours and heal together with the people they have harmed.
