The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

A Moral and Ethical Issue

People Will Virtually Kill One to Save Five

 

It’s a moral and ethical problem that has been studied before: you see a train heading towards five hikers and you have the power to save them.  Just pull a switch to make the train swerve out of the way on another track.  BUT you’ll kill another hiker who won’t see the train coming at all.  What do you do?  Intervene?  Or no?

 

Variations on this have vexed philosophers (and their students) for decades.
