But I still don't understand, why the kidnappers would let you go free though, no matter what button you pressed.
What I'm trying to say is, that you would die no matter what.
So why take the red button? There's no logical reason to press it, also it's morally wrong.


I see, this is hypothetical.... so it was formulated for one or the other button to be pressed.
The doc may be crazy, but that doesn't mean he can't be a honest loon.

I see still the blue button makes most sense for me at least.

Lol...the one who presses red first kills the other, but this situation is quite obviously to formulate either of 2 possible outcomes.
I am sure that someone who would ask such a question will know this from the start.

Whatever button I pressed, If I lived the person I would have no remorse in killing would be the psychotic who set that choice up.

Let me put it another way. After being (in my mind) forced to murder someone. (or put my faith in the idea that some random stranger wouldn't murder me) I would set out to find and kill the people who made that happen.

Thinking about it that way. I think It would become a self fulfilling prophecy, I probably wouldn't have the courage to press blue. but having been forced to murder an innocent (for all I know) I wouldn't care if the label murderer applied to my making sure that the sick puppies who came up with this deal could never hurt anyone again.

(philosophy aside the truth is that I'd probably die why dithering about making up my mind.)

I would not push any button. And instead say "Fuck you". Because I refuse to be pushed around.

Most people would press the blue button - it's how society works. All of our lives are globally already interconnected and fates in the hands of people we will never know.


Maybe your are right.

I think most people would press the red button, there are more selfish people out there....

Knowing myself, I would be traumatized by the experience. I would press the red button just because my survival instincts and indifference call for it since it is a stranger, someone I shouldn't feel sorry for (I'd tell that in my mind at that moment) I would not hesitate to press the blue button if it is a member of my family...I would still think it twice if it is a friend.

But in the end, by choosing the red button and getting free, my consciousness would not leave me alone and I'd kill myself out of remorse.

It's a clip from a 2012 movie called Lockout. A man is being interrogated and he refuses to cooperate, despite being beaten. In fact, the man deliberately goads his captors.
