    Default Murder: which is harder

    Well.. silverwmoon's thread inspired me to ask this question that I heard a lot.

    If you had to take a life of someone else... which would you do? Which guilt would you rather endure?

    (1) Press a button. You are flying an airplane and by pressing this button you drop a bomb on a city and kill a thousand. You are responsible for the death of a thousand innocents. However, you never actually get to see your victims suffer and it is a fast death.

    (2) Stab one person with a knife. It's a painful way to go, yet you only kill one person and spare many others. This takes more psychological strength to do since you probably would remember your victim's faces and screams for a while.

    stab em... and in all seriousness i have a small conscience so i doubt id have any trouble getting over it.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Kill one person. If I was to kill one person, yet I'd be saving others, right? I find that the worst way to go is to kill many, even if there are other problems to be solved. As long as many people were saved...

    (Good idea for a thread. o_o)

    i dont think the option of saving others should be part of the question, anyone in their right mind would kill one person to save others rather than kill a thousand people randomly... in other words the questions/options arent balanced

    I never dissected anything because of the ickiness, not because of the morality or anything. I've watched dissections, though (and only felt bad about the fetal pig). I just think that it would weigh on my conscience MUCH more to kill many people. One person is indeed a life, but more people = more lives and all...

    sorry DE but i dont have much sentiment in my system, ive never cried at a funeral or been sickened by the thought of torture and/or pain. by no means am i a sadist or a masochist im just one hell of a desensitized person...

    truthfully id wouldnt have a problem doing either one of the options but i guess itd be more convienient to just kill one person.
