Top 10 Moral Dilemmas
Miscellaneous Thankfully most of us do not come across dire situations that present a moral dilemma, but it is always a very interesting exercise to consider a dilemma and our reaction to it. So, I now present you with a list of ten agonizing moral dilemmas, in no particular order. (Be sure to tell us what you would do in the comments.) 10. Concentration Camp You are an inmate in a concentration camp. 9. You are an emergency worker that has just been called to the scene of an accident. She sees you and although barely conscious, she manages to mouth the words “I’m sorry”… You don’t understand, but her look answers you question. You reel back in shock, devastated by what her eyes have just told you. You look at the seat next to her and see her lover. If you tend to your wife however, the man will bleed to death despite the fact it could have been avoided. Who would you choose to work on? 8. You are the network administrator for a rather large company. What do you do? 7. You sit down to think.
