I personally don't believe in Utilitarianism. It is not right to kill that poor guy.

Not pulling the lever means 5 people die in a freak trolley accident. You were there; you could have done something, but you didn't. however, nobody should expect you to do something.

Pulling the lever, however, is already murder. you make a conscious decision to send the trolley at the one person on the side track knowing that it would kill them.

I'd rather be a bystander than a murderer.
