Objectivism is a philosophy in the same way that a rotten, filth-covered apple is food.

To much the pragmatist.

I would be unwilling to make any of the personal sacrifices, unless the innocent was someone I had a connection to.

Have no legs, with the way technology is progressing, why we'll have full leg replacements by 2035.

Objectivism refers to Ayn Rand's philosophy that promotes self interest as a virtue and that people should consider themselves lest they be Shirou Emiyas.

Murder of course

Lose all memories. I wonder if I'd end up as the same person or someone totally different.

What PV said. Objectivism holds that the morally correct thing to do is whatever benefits you and your self-interest the most. Others and their livelihoods matter not -- you're the center of the world.

Lose my memories, but before that I'd leave a trail of bread crumbs to help myself remember some important things. Journal entries and other notes.

Well it's not that you're the center of the world or that you should do what benefits yourself.

By all means helping others is important and should come before you and i believe this.
(i took this as you insisting or taking the idea that i'm someone who follows objectivism when i'm exactly the opposite in most cases)

However one should always put there health into consideration i would myself rather lose my memories in most cases however...without any of the three things i must give up i can't reach my life goal.

You should always put others before you however in the case of striving for immortality or my life being prolonged i must put others before me.
That's pure survival instinct.

Is it right? well no....but the alternative is never reaching your goal.

Honestly though i say i would choose murder however i don't know how i would actually act in that kind of situation i feel i would not be able to make myself do it.

However i'm not giving up my life dreams just so someone else can live i have to be selfish atleast once in my life.

Honestly the only reason i could ever murder someone would be if i was put into a position where its me or them.
I don't really live an "objectivism" style life if anything i believe in giving and helping others rather then taking and doing things to benefit oneselves.

We all have one think that would drive us to kill or throw away our ideals and mine is my life...i value it as the most precious thing i have.
With my phobia of death it would make little sense for me to be ok with killing myself or giving up on my life dream which is basically to avoid death as long as humanly possible then go out with a bang and leave behind a gift for those who i love.

Life is about helping others and in-turn by that helping yourself you should always save people and help them those are my ideals.

Well one would assume they mean you have no legs nor can you ever get them back.

Atleast that's how i read this.....because otherwise i would be fine with giving up my legs for some robo-legs xD

WIN / WIN Scenario.


Hmm... Good point. Now I regret not voting for murdering someone.

i edited that out cause on second thought it wouldn't be murder if they were ok with it.
So i kind of wish i can change my answer now i have thought about it more xD

Lose all your memories has the least amount of pain and probably won't affect you in a negative way.
