Depends entirely on the circumstances. I wouldn't want to. I strongly believe there is value to human life. But If it's to save another life, I'd do what I have to. I wouldn't like it though, and I'd probably mourn them, lose sleep the whole nine yards.

I feel that no matter who the person is (With a few exceptions) they don't deserve to die. If someone was threatening my life I don't think I would have the resolve to kill them. But the second you threaten my family or friends. I would even hesitate.

I think i would try to flee from the situation. Its messed up , anyone see Ringing Bell ( Chirin no suzu) where the sheep through its revenge on the wolf eventually is considered as a wolf itself.

That's the thing, you lose your innocence. I am not happy about that, i dreamed that i killed someone , and i was panicking and saying to myself ' oh no i killed someone, I can never undo this for all eternity. When i woke up i was SO glad that it didn't really happen.

I will try at least to go for the least damaging outcome.

Depends on the situation, e.g. does this person act like the type who would hurt others if I didn't stop them? If it is such a person, then I would not hesitate to kill them, I would mourn the fact it had to come to that afterwards however. Even when justice demands the death of a wicked person and what is right is accomplished, I mourn, for another human being has been slain.

I want to believe that i'd be able to easily, but i'm not quite sure if I really could. I think I could.

I see a ton of people here say they would kill someone to defend themselves. The truth is would you really? It's one thing to say you would pull the trigger; it's a whole other thing to actually have to do it.

I would do it and I would probably love doing it. In my entire life I have simply took the most easiest routes, avoiding conflict. However conflict and our ability to overcome conflict is what makes human lives, this means I am a hollow shell of a person. If a definitive life altering choice such as this presented itself, I would kill in order to live. Not physically, but in a spiritual sense.

all you sissies on here saying you would easily kill someone don't know shit. Truth be told i doubt hardly any of you would have the balls to do it. Just cuz you watch a bunch of action and horror movies doesn't make you understand what its like to end a human life. Not only are you ending someone's entire life but you are also putting that persons family and friends through grief and sadness plus they could have kids and a spouse. Which makes you lower than the dirt i walk on and makes you #1 scumbag. Not to mention this is a stupid topic to begin with.

What people think doesn't matter so much once you know that you are a survivor

I never to this day thought of the other guys family. Honestly he is to blame for picking up that gun and going to war he is the one who caused his family grief by getting himself killed. I have never shead a tear over a dead enemy and never will

I wasn't even talking about war but since you brought it up, thats different it's either you or them but you do realize the enemy is no different than yourself you both fight for what you think is right. But you have to realize other countries still have a military draft, people are forced to go and pick up that gun whether they want to or not. So in some situations you can't really say it's their fault for picking up that gun.

You seem to have forgotten your history, it is EASY to dehumanize your fellow man. Since there is no definite definition of human. It is a simple abstract concept that we use to make us feel superior to other animals. The only reason people don't kill each other in the streets is because it is easier not to, due to technology. We love to tell ourselves, "Look how far we have come from 1,000 years ago" , but the simple truth is that we are exactly the same selfish beasts that care only for ourselves.

If you don't think you're superior to other animals like say a dog then thats all you bro. Fact is humans are far more capable of higher intelligence than any other animal thats why we're at the top of the food chain. Whether you choose to use that intelligence to better yourself rather than do something stupid like killing someone just to kill them is all up to you. My original post was directed at people that say it would be easy for them to kill another person for no reason or even enjoy doing it. If you fall into this category then yes I would put you at the #1 scumbag list. Why? because if you desire to hurt someone for no reason and don't have the brains or the will to control it then i can honestly say your are lower than the dirt i walk on.
