If a man orders another man to be killed, who is worse the man killed him or the man that ordered another to kill him?

I think that the man carying out the order is worse beacuse he knows what he is doing. The man giving the orders might only be able to imagine what it's like to kill someone.

Neither, the guy that was killed shoulda been watching his back.

The man giving the order is worse because he's to cowardly to do it himself.


When in doubt, gas it!

Both commit the same crime, they just use different tools. The first person might not feel as bad as the second because he didn't get his hands dirty but that doesn't mean that he isn't just as guilty.

That's a very hard question, I think the one who demanded him to do that.

Something such as that cannot be answered by anyone. We don't know about the two people. The person doing the killing could be like me, now, I am not saying I kill people, or would, but he could feel no guilt over things, and could be just in it for sheer money, not for the evil sense of killing people, which he could also be. You have people who do care about killing people, but in an opposite way, they enjoy it. So the motivation for the job would count in that sense also. In my eyes, if it was that the person enjoys killing other people, he is worse, but if he is just a careless man that is in it for the money, then hell, he isn't as bad as the man who wants someone dead.

I guess it does depend somewhat on the circumstances, the employee could be blackmailing the employee, but otherwise, they're equally as guilty.

Agreed. You are both effectivly murdering an other person and therefor just as guilty. It doesn't matter wether you order somebody to commit murder or wether you obey to this order and commit murder.

The only exception I could think of would be when somebody is forced to commit murder or be shot himself though in that case one *should* let himself be shot though. Murder can never be justified no matter what tools (words or weapons) you use.
