Sharing My World 28-02-2022

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World. It’s a day earlier than usual as I’m busy tomorrow and I can’t afford to run out of time as Monday will bring a new SYW!

Is any one person’s life worth more than another’s? Why or why not?
No. Or, if you like, you could measure someone’s life by the number of other lives it would affect. Like, if someone were to die, how many other’s lives would get better/worse? If, just as an example, off the top of my head, some random dictator, from Eastern Europe, say, fell in the bath tub tomorrow and broke his (or her) neck, would a whole lot of people’s lives suddenly get a lot better?

Can a good person do evil things and remain a good person? Under what circumstances?
I don’t reckon so. A good person can do bad things and remain a good person, but “evil” takes a certain sort of person.

Is somebody morally culpable if they take a morally wrong action at the orders of a superior? What if their life is at stake?
Ooh, the “I was just following orders” defence. According to the war crimes court, yes, they’re culpable.

People had widely mixed opinions about illegal bananas, so let’s take that a step further this week: What would be the worst thing for a government to make illegal?
The world wide web. I’d have to, like, talk to people. IRL. Urgh 😦

    Thank you Alistair for Sharing Your World! I hope tomorrow isn’t too stressful, it’s nice to be busy (sometimes), but stress? Never good. What wonderful answers and if that imaginary ‘leader’ did fall and break his neck? I suspect there would be dancing in the streets, but I’m a believer in Karma too and so I wouldn’t wish him harm. I can hope though, right? 😉 You made a very scary, very valid point with #10. 😐 Actual conversation? With a human being? Face to face? Auggghh. 😱 Have the rest of a splendid weekend and a great week going forward!

      Yes, imagine having to talk to a person face to face where you can’t pretend the connection has gone down when you’ve had enough 😮

    Food for thought… If we don’t make bananas illegal, there will be a greater chance for bathtub slipping (on A BANANA peel).

      This is possibly our secret plan. Make it look like an accident!

    You threw me off with the day early, and I had to go back and look for this!

    Evil definitely does take a certain type of person…. or squirrel, as it may be.
