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:
- Lassie really can do all of the things she is depicted as doing in her television show.
- Lassie is still alive, and healthy.
- Hitler is still alive, and healthy.
- 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.
The Pub is for serious discussion dude........
I'd save Lassie because I like dogs.
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.
*moved to general*
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.
