We're studying Lord of the Flies in English at school and our guest speaker gave us an interesting thought. I figured I would share it with y'all and see what you think.

 

You are standing by a train track. A train is coming down the tracks. On the tracks are 5 people who are stuck on the tracks and cannot be removed. By you is a switch. By pulling the switch, the train will switch tracks and go down another path. On that path is just 1 person, also stuck on the tracks and cannot be removed. Who pulls the switch and who doesn't?

Cool book.  Lord of the Flies is a classic.

 

Other questions arise. Who are the 5?  Who is the 1? Which group do you hate the most? Do you follow the Vulcan reasoning that the needs of the many out weigh the needs of the few or the one? Can you turn your back so that you dont see anyone get run over or do you have to watch them die.

 

Anyway I would pull the switch
