Can You Answer This Tough Questions With Reasons?

25

PS: There is no right or wrong answer, just state your answer with reasons. But think your reasons through and think if you would still stick to it if the scenario changed a little. Scenario 1 You are driving a TRAIN on a rail track but from a distance you can see that 5 workers are working on the track and for some reasons your brake and horn doesn't work. You are sure THE FIVE OF THEM WILL BE KILLED, but just as you have accepted that fate, you see an intersection on the rail track and if you switch to that intersection ONLY 1 WORKER will die. Here is the dilemma, (A)Will you make that switch to save 5 and kill just 1? or (B) will you continue on the original track and kill 5 instead? If you pick A, what are your reasons and if you pick B what are your reasons. It doesn't stop there. If you picked A can you answer this. Suppose you were standing at the side of the Track before the rail intersection and you are sure if you jump into the track, the train will KILL YOU but stop moving therefore SAVING 5 or 6 rail workers in the process will you go ahead with it seeing your SACRIFICE WILL BE SAVING 6 LIVES? if yes why and if not, why not. If you picked B, What if the number of people in that track suddenly increased to 20 or 50 workers in a split second, will you still maintain on that original track or will you switch lane and kill the one? If you will continue, why? If not, why not? If you picked you will not, then answer this too, Suppose you were a by stander at the side of the Track after the train passed the rail intersection, will you jump into the track, the train will KILL YOU but stop moving therefore SAVING 20 rail workers in the process. Will you go ahead with it seeing your SACRIFICE WILL BE SAVING 20 LIVES? if yes why and if not, why not. Scenario 2 will be up soon...
