Here are a couple questions of philosophy to let you think about. For all of these questions assume that you have a button ending the lives of the people you are asked to end the lives of in the various questions, although this is not real world, you could easily substitute any real world weapon into the picture, the button idea, just gets rid of the "What if you miss" or the "Long term effects of a nuclear weapon" type questions. 1. Lets say a guy is pointing a gun at another guy and is going to shoot the weapon, do you push the button to kill the "criminal" and save the "victim." 2. Two guys are pointing their guns at a victim, do you push the button to kill them both or save two lives and let the victim die. 3. A million guys are pointing guns at a victim, do you kill them all to save one who appears innocent? In the end my question is, when does the numbers game balance out the relative guilt of the offenders, who has the right to survive in these circumstances?
