Yes, it is for the greater good.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 9:16:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, good of the many outweighs the needs of the few.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 9:23:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
^I understand this argument, but I don't think I could murder anyone, particularly if they are innocent, so I'm gonna vote 'no'.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 9:29:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would definitely think about it, but I don't think I could kill anyone, let alone an innocent person.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 11:38:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
no, but i would take my own life to do it
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 12:59:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I don't think the end justifies the means. I have no right to sacrifice someone else's life.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 1:00:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Depends if I knew them
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 1:01:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't like these 'would you kill one person to save another' type questions. Can't answer that unless your in the situation And new all factors involved.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 1:02:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
I could understand if it happens. But I couldn't do it myself.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 1:23:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure. And I'd kill a sh*t load of guilty people as well. But where's the guarantee that this will happen?
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 1:23:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
And who's paying for it? Sure better not be my tax dollars.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 6/4/05 - 11:09:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would say yes now, because it's for the greater good and all that jazz, but push come to shove I doubt I would be able to.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/5/05 - 3:21:31 AM EST (GMT-5)
How the phuck did this loaded, useless, waste of a question ever get accepted? Ban whichever mod accepted this crap.

*Vomits*

At least someone was honest enough to say it depended if they knew them. WHen most people answer this they think of killing some random person they've never met, but really, how many of you who said yes would do it if meant killing your best friend or something?

I agree with lady, I dont think i have a right to take anyone eles life
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 8/15/05 - 4:17:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I would let all those people starve. Seriously.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 8/15/05 - 4:25:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
All over the world, forever and ever?

YES!

16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 8/30/05 - 4:09:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
i'm not sure....i dont think i would do it though. it would be on my mind.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/9/05 - 4:44:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes i would no doubt about it, well unless it was like someone in my family or sumthing. yeah its kindof sad to think about doing that but if its the only way then it needs to be done (in my opinion)
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/9/05 - 4:58:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
The ends justify the means, but the means determine the ends. Murdering an innocent person could not end hunger in the world, anymore than it could end gravity. The Fourth Law makes this quite clear.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/9/05 - 5:03:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Eh, I'd murder an innocent person if I wouldn't get caught for it. I don't need to end hunger, but sure - I would. That way I would never be hungry.

Sociopathic answers to YT questions are fun.

I can only assume you mean this facetiously.

Allowing people to starve, when there is something you can do about it, is the same as murder. So instead of killing just one person, you're killing millions. I think that's a one way ticket to hell.

As long as i didnt know the person who i was meant to kill, and the world would never be hungry or go hungry again...

Then i'd consider it...

I would say it might be okay for one person's death to prevent the death of hundreds of thousands, but I couldn't kill the person myself.
