Re: Trolly Problem

It is acceptable to divert the path to the second track if and only if the the Fairy Queen approves.

Who is the Fairy Queen? Why is her approval relevant? I'm sorry, but those questions have no place in this thread.

Re: Trolly Problem

Killing 5 people is equally bad as killing 1 person. So genocide is morally equivalent to assisted suicide? If we fail to feed someone and they die, it's tragic but not immoral. It is immoral to purposely starve someone. Does this not contradict your claim that " there is a moral obligation to...
