    Default deathnote in real life

    If there was such a thing as a deathnote in real life, and you found out there was no heaven or hell, that you would fade into nothingness, would anything hold you back from using it? if theres no eternal punishment what would hold you in check?

    Mortality, understanding, compassion, caring, not having enough mental stamina to. Sounds dumb, but thats what stops murders from happening.

    Of course nothing would hold me back.I'd use it like how Light did,cept I'd include a few stupid/arrogant/ignorant people that never learn even.

    I probably would use it (that is, I wouldn't be able to restrain myself completely), but nothing mayor. And I most definately wouldn't use it to create a 'perfect world', simply because there is no such thing. I probably wouldn't even kill Osama bin Laden or anyone like that, because it would shift the 'power balance' in ways I would not be able to control.

    What I like about the Death Note manga is that it questions justice itself. According to Dutch law you are commiting an offence if you whack a thief in his/her face. You are commiting an offence if you kill the person who tries to rape you. Etc etc. Of course, it's not like you'd get a huge penalty for it, but still, I have always found this odd. If you could help multiple people with it, what is wrong with killing? If you can prevent murder by killing the would-be-murderer, why would it be wrong? If you can make absolutely sure a murderer would not kill again by killing that murderer, why would it be wrong?

    However, in my opinion the problems are 'gain' and 'border'. Most crimes committed are for gain rather than 'preventing harm'. And which crimes would be severe enough to warrant 'death'? Where is the border?
    Isn't that really 'up to society' as a whole to decide? Some people are too soft, others too extreme and some are in between. Together, they define the best mix of what is acceptable and to which extent.
    I am not saying the current laws in this world are perfect; they're not and they never will be, because the sense of justice of people will always and continously change and because people do not have the same amount of power to influence the laws. I am just saying that while Light may not have been wrong at first; 'trying to prevent harm', it quickly turned into personal gain: gaining the 'Kingdom of Kira' with himself as the ultimate superior leader, the king, the god, the judge.

    Screw a few a year,they say that were gonna run out of fish and sea sea resources by 2048, plus crime rates are soaring.Need to kill to save resources and to punish those deserves to be punished.
    I would definately be like Raito and try to create a new world order.Where I am the ultimate judge,where if you do wrong, I will get you. But I'm really a tolerant person so it'd be up to circumstances as to who and why.
    Only thing I wish about the deathnote was that it should be able to see through the internet(like see face and name just by seeing where they post/show up go to on the net/ip). That would eliminate alot of sexual predators,scammers,idiots, and ect.

    Use the Death Note to get rich and powerful...not very generous or kind of me but hey...I'm only human...and well...after thinking about it...if I was in that position...that's what I would do...I'm not a very good person...sorry...
