Trolley Problem Gamblers Edition
Ask a Question
So you may have heard about the trolley problem.
If not, it is this questions where there is this trolley/train heading down the track. In front of it there are 2 paths. One of the paths has one person tied to it, the other has 5 tied to it. You have control over which way the train will go. Would you kill one person or five.
But the tricky part is, what if that one person is your mother, father, spouse, kid or anyone you really like while the others are strangers.
But also, what would you do if the five are your favourite people and the one person is a stranger.
But my question is. What if there are 5 tracks. One with one person tied to it. One with 5. And the other three are empty. You can either do nothing and let the one person die. Or pull the lever saving the one person but changing the trolley to any other track. There is a 3/4 chance no one dies but 1/4 that 5 people die.
