Of course. Not killing them will probably mean that everyone dies instead. Shirou's ideal of saving everyone might be something beautiful to think of, but it's not realistic.

What if its 3 billion and 1 Jews?

>>161470090
In a situation where you have nothing but pure numbers and no other information, yes.
The problem with that philosophy lies in knowing whom you have to kill to save god knows whom.
Say you live in a country with 20 million people. Would you kill all of them to save 20 million and 1 or even 21 million from another country? Including your family, friends, colleagues and whom not. There's no way you'd ever be able to rationalize a choice like that unless you're seriously fucked up in the head, just like Kerry was.
Shit, you can expend that to argue that sometimes it's okay to let more people die just to protect the ones that are actually close to you.

So yeah, Kerry wouldn't give a shit and would do it because he's a broken machine. Fate Shirou would definitely do it while UBW Shirou might still think about what kind of people are on both ends while HF Shirou wouldn't give a shit and kill 3 billion people to save the girl he loves.

That may be a personal problem for you, but on a more technical level, it really does matter whom you save.
Say you kill 3 billion mothers and "save" their 3 billion babies.
Or on a more abstract level, let's say the sacrifice lot includes everyone involved in or with knowledge of agriculture.
Say among the dead is every politician and in general everyone involved in management?
In any of these cases, you haven't really saved anyone. Humanity is objectively and quantifiably worse off because of your actions.

Depends if the one is me or not
>>
>>161470090
No. It's only okay to kill 3 billion if you're going to kill 3 more billion.
>>
>>161471192
Don't be so uptight.
>>
>>161470090
If there's no change in the aftermath, then killing the 3 billion is the morally right thing to do.
If the way you kill is different than what they're killed by, it'll get a lot more complicated.
>>
>>161470090
If that 1 more is a girl that will be my loyal cumdumpster then yes

Since humans are not equal the answer is no.

The planet would be better off with 3 billion less people on it. It shouldn't be okay to save anyone.

If you killed off the 3 billion poorest people, what would happen?
Conversely, what about killing the 3 billion richest people?

You really don't know much about Kiritsugu at all don't you?

The tainted grail was literally showing him a warped version how to 'save' the world, since it already twist any wish into complete destruction.
>>
>>161470258
>But Kiritsugu doesn't believe in utilitarianism, he just practice a form of it because it was the only realistic way for him he knows of to get anywhere. But it is still something not acceptable for him, he chased for the Holy Grail to try to create such world without need for such sacrifice.

------------
>Even Kotomine knew that:
>"You do not need to understand. Emiya Kiritsugu desired peace. Isn't it simple? But it was too simple for this complex world. He had to reject the extra parts that could not fit into that perfect shape."
>"But he could not tolerate that.
>He sought a perfect shape, but still wanted to save the extra parts.
>…But that is a miracle exceeding human power.
>There is no such thing as a world without conflict. He sought the Holy Grail to deny that fact."
------------

All he knows is that the Einzberns told him the Holy Grail is a legitimate miracle that could grant any wish, and he had little reason to doubt them considering they could demonstrate their sorcery trait with wish-granting (which is basically the ability to cast things without the knowledge of the magic itself). So basically he believed that such wish is possible with the demonstration, with the amount of power the Holy Grail collects, because the system was suppose to create a miracle, and even in the strict case the Einzbern would be able to give his wish a proper form with their sorcery traits.

>But when he found out the grail was corrupted and limited and malicious it is, he rejected it.
>Kiritsugu doesn't even think he's a good person, he thinks he's immoral due to his methods. and one of the reasons he said he doesn't deserve to hold Illya when she was born.

However, since the Grail at this time was tainted by Angra Mainyu, Kiritsugu was presented with the most malicious imagery of his "saved World".

EXPLAIN
>>
>>161472785
>>161470258
Twenty-five and fifteen - the choices continued. The sacrifices continued. The
mountain of corpses accumulated.
"This... is what you wanted to show me?"
Even as Kiritsugu recalled his nausea at the aim of this vile game, he listened
intently to the thing that called itself the "will of the Holy Grail".
That's right. This is your truth. The answer within Emiya Kiritsugu. In other words,
the acts that should be carried out by the Holy Grail as a wishing machine.
"No!"
Kiritsugu shouted, with his hands stained by blood.
"I didn't wish for something like this! I wanted some other method... that's why I had
no choice but to rely on a miracle..."
A method you yourself are not aware of could not possibly be included into your
desire. You wished for the salvation of the world; therefore, it can only be realized by
the means you are aware of.
"To hell with that! How is... this a miracle?!"
It is a miracle. What you had once aspired for, the deed that you were unable to
achieve alone will finally be carried out on a scope unreachable by the hands of men.
This is nothing if not a miracle.

>Narita: Since the Holy Grail itself was only a clump of magical energy, wishing for "Saving the World" without specifying the method would not work. If Kiritsugu had no power or wealth, but knew "the method of Saving the World", it may be possible for the Grail to carry it out.... Kiritsugu was presented with such a vision of "what would happened if the World was saved" because Kiritsugu only knew of "sacrificing few for the benefit of many". However, since the Grail at this time was tainted by Angra Mainyu, Kiritsugu was presented with the most malicious imagery of his "saved World".

>Narita: If "Saving the World" was wished upon the Grail as the Grail had presented, what would happen?
>Mashin: It would certainly realize it a la The Monkey's Paw.

The only logical answer is to kill 6 billion and 1. If they die, they are worthless trash.
