Blue button, I cannot take another life to perserve mine. Since I would technically be commiting murder with the red button

Say you were in a room with a stranger. You both have guns on your person, but neither of you have taken out the gun yet. Plus you each know the other person has a gun. Other than that you don't know anything about the other person.

You wouldn't just pull your gun out and shoot the other person in fear that he would do the same thing to you would you?

I saw this same scenario in a movie I watch a long time ago....
Anyway, I'd push the RED button without question.

It depends on the person, I'm a firearms owner and I would never point one of my firearms at a person even if he were to point one at me. It is like the golden rule of owning firearms. Stop trying make us look bad now ass.

according to my teacher there is no such thing as altruism so 99.9% everyone is going to press the red button.

So ya I would probably press it too.


I'm not part of the 0.1%, since I'm no altruist. Rather, I would say that humans nature, or any living things nature, is self-centered. But I would press the blue button. There would be no hesitation either. I press the red button and I have to live with the guilt of killing someone and hating my life. Screw that, I'd press the blue button and die. If, unexpectedly, the other person also pressed the blue button, then all the better.

Another situation that is different from the original situation. Obviously being in a room with the other person makes it much more personal and you have a lot more insight as to what the correct choice is going to be. If he looks like he is freaking out then yes I might very well shoot him. I have no reason to take chances with someone who looks unstable. If he looks like he is going to to be rational though then there would be no reason for me to shoot. I really hope you aren't thinking that the answer should be the same for both scenarios since they are just too different.

Oh my god, I hope I am never in this situation with a bunch of CR people... I was going to say BLUE button. And I thought it would be the more popular choice. I would rather be killed than kill.

Typically I would rather be killed than kill someone as well. If it is made as simple as pushing a button though and I don't even have to see who it is or how they die....sorry but buh-bye.

Yay! If this hypothetical situation were to ever happen in real life, I hope you're the person on the other side!

Yeah, that seems to be how most people on here think. I couldn't do it though, and if I did I would feel guilty for the rest of my life.

Ok so, Imagine you are kidnapped and strapped to a chair with only one arm free within reach of two buttons.
You were given only two choices:
1. Press a red button that will kill a random person (via poison injection by the kidnappers smiling doc ) from any possible country of whom you have never met, and you will be freed of any possible harm.
or
2. Press a blue button which will disable the red button(the blue button cannot be pressed until 5 minutes upon the buttons activation which will be activated at the same time)

The random person who would be on the receiving end of your choice is in the same situation as you are, and hold your fate in their hand because You! are on the receiving end of their buttons. If you both press the blue button, you both will go free. Which would you choose???Red or Blue? only 5 minutes tic-tok


So, could this random person end up being a close family member? And you would never know?
