I am thinking about writing a book about this picture. Do you have any advice?
A hypothetical is an "impossible" situation such that morality is simplified to the quatity of people.
You can write how the masses is not individualized humans and play on the stalin death-statistics quote.
I want to focus on the man who is standing and not tied to a rope. Does he pull the switch or does he not pull the switch? I think there is a lot of discussion to be had about his thought process and I want to explore that.
Why bother. If you are gonna do it, you are gonna do it.
>the notorious railway killer strikes again
>passerby are advised to stand well clear, as the switch generally does nothing but nothing but activate a bomb
>if you see suspicious looking individuals laying down cable car track, call 911 immediately
Yes. If we're going to measure things by their Utilitarian impact on the physical, finite universe, we can only measure the relative worth of each choice by their impacts as finite procedures.
Thanks I'm pretty funny and make most of /lit/s good OC. I consider becoming a tripfag now and then- I could easily be remembered as the equal of someone like Quentin.
