If you're reading this, at least read the scenario and vote. Thanks.

I've had this kina philosophical question in my head for a while now.
This being from someone who love post apocalyptic fiction. It started with me wondering how'd I'd fare in a post apocalyptic world.

The Scenario
You in full 'look out for 'numero uno' and all about your own survival. You wander across a gang surrounding a woman and her child, their intentions are unknown. You can either save them with moderate/serious risk to yourself or contine on your way continuing to focus on your own survival.

Try to answer honestly. Personally even though I fancy myself a 'loner' my humanity would force me to act. I don't think I could live with myself other wise.

I couldn't give you an honest answer unless a situation like this was upon me. You don't always know how you'll react in certain situations.

I'm also hoping a situation like this never does happen.

I would have to say yes in this situation, even if I were to sustain heavy damage or even death. Heck, I would wish myself dead if I didn't help anyway.

Yes.

I'm aware I would probably die for trying but I can't live with a guilty conscious.

What Iberjib said. I pray that I am able to answer the call on the day. I would feel like a total piece of shit if I left them to die. I would want to save them but my body might freeze up in fear.

Well. It's the apocalypse so I most likely have knives. At least 3 of them are goners. I'm goin' right for the throat. No time to play with them. If they have guns I'm stabbing one in the side of the throat taking his gun and using him as a shield as I attempt to blow the others away. Even if I die I'll weed out the numbers enough so that they can get away. I'm not a murderous man but I am a caring one. I'll protect them with my life.

I wouldn't. The chances of them dying later on is rather high anyway,plus if I save them, I'd have to save every stranger in need that I will meet unless I want to feel hypocritical which is one thing I hate to feel/think of myself.

I am gonna save them. I am a military trained, combat hardened soldier so I feel my odds in any given combat situation are good. I also question the worth of anyone who wouldn't ,such people don't deserve to keep breathing a second longer.

I'd have to question what I was living for if I was abandoning my humanity by ignoring them, so I probably would. But then again, it depends on the size of the gang and the tools at my disposal

I'd like to think I would but you never know until you're presented with it.

Did I stop bullying in Middle School?
No.
So I probably won't have the guts to save some Woman and Child.

I would probably not live to regret it, but my conscience would not allow me to move on without attempting to save them.
