If you alter your path to avoid walking face first into a brick wall has the wall coerced you to do so, or more precisely have the photons that entered your eye indicating the presents of the wall caused you to do so? If you wish to jump over a mountain has gravity coerced you to stay where you are?

No, I think coercion is influence by another's will and it admits of degrees.
