If Hitler and Lassie (the heroic dog that used to be featured in the black and white television show that bears her name) were trapped in a burning building, and you could only save one of them, which would you save? Assumptions:

  1. Lassie really can do all of the things she is depicted as doing in her television show.
  2. Lassie is still alive, and healthy.
  3. Hitler is still alive, and healthy.
  4. If saved, Hitler would not be allowed to escape and create an army bent on taking over the world or committing atrocities.

It's fairly obvious what most of you would pick, but I just ask that you think about this more carefully before deciding.

When you say: "If saved, Hitler would not be allowed to escape and create an army bent on taking over the world or committing atrocities." Are you talking about the pre-nazi Hitler, or what?

Are you talking about the pre-nazi Hitler, or what? I'm talking about the post-Nazi Hitler, after he committed all the atrocities. Basically, knowing what we know now. The Pub is for serious discussion dude........ This is an exercise in moral judgment. This is a serious discussion.

I'd save the human before the animal, regardless of who the human or animal is.

I would save the human and give him to the USA for lots of money, so he would then be executed.

I would save the animal before the human, and let that guy burn.

Move it back please. I am sure there is an alternate point behind this discussion.

Anyway I would save the dog, not because of the fact that hitler is considered evil, I save the dog because quite frankly I care more about random animals then I do of random people that I don't know.
