Every maniac’s favorite subject: Kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill! And kill some more!
1. Could you kill an innocent person even if you might get caught? Let’s hope you all answer no, but unfortunately, I think the number of folks who answer yes is going to much higher than you would think. I certainly hope my answer is no for God’s sake!
2. Could you kill an innocent person, even if you could be assured of getting away with it? I certainly hope my answer here would be no. I hope if I did it, my conscience would eat away at me for the rest of my life.
3. Could you kill an innocent person if they wanted you to do it because they were sick in the head if you might get caught? I definitely think my answer here would be no. I don’t think I could even hurt an innocent person if they wanted me to do it. I just don’t think I have it in me. Even hurting them would probably scare the living crap out of me and terrify me. I don’t think I would be able to enjoy it. Some people might answer no because they might get caught.
There have been some interesting cases along these lines. In one case, a female lunatic hooked up with a male sick fuck on the Internet. She had a fantasy of being murdered, and he had long wanted to murder someone, but he had enough controls not to do it. Just because she was a willing victim ain’t good enough though in the eyes of the law! The law doesn’t care. You’re a murderer just the same.
A recent legal ethics book argued killers might get lowered sentences in “willing victim” cases. I don’t agree with that.
4. Could you kill an innocent person if they wanted you to do it because they were sick in the head if you could be assured you would not get caught? This is a tougher question, but I still don’t think I have it in me to do that, or at least I hope I don’t.
5. Could you kill an innocent person who wanted you too, in which it was a case of mercy killing, and you might get caught? This is the toughest question of all! In most cases, we can argue that simply taking a life is wrong, wrong, wrong. That’s pretty much the way that I lived my life. But in the case of mercy killing, you are supposedly doing this dying and ill person a favor by killing them.
Apparently this sort of thing goes on in hospitals a lot, in which case doctors are killers. Giving a pull the plug order is actually somewhat trivial morally, though it can be painful. I could definitely give a pull the plug order. A number of people say that they might do this, but the thought of getting caught would stop them.
6. Could you kill an innocent person who wanted you too, in which it was a case of mercy killing, and you could be assured you would not get caught? Toughest one of them all. A lot of people would probably answer yes. I am not sure I could do this. Maybe I could, maybe I could not.
7. Could you execute an enemy prisoner in war, no matter how evil, if they were begging for mercy? In the case of most prisoners within normal bounds of evil, I say no. It’s the mercy part that would get to me.
8. Could you execute an enemy prisoner in war, no matter how evil, if they had given up and resigned to death and were not begging for mercy? This might be a little easier, but I still might have to give the gun to someone else.
9. Could you kill someone who was attacking you after you had already subdued them to the point where they were not fighting anymore (on the ground and beaten) if you might get caught? This would be a crime of rage.
I would like to think my rational mind would take over and I would think they deserve to be hurt about as much as they hurt me, but no more. If someone inflicted nonpermanent injuries on me, I have a right to inflict some nonpermanent injuries on them. That’s the way I see it.
A lot of people would say that they could kill an attacker in rage, but they would not for fear they get caught. I have been in some wild fistfights, and I certainly did not try to kill my attackers. I was mostly interested in stopping them or fending them off.
9. Could you kill someone who was attacking you after you had already subdued them to the point where they were not fighting anymore (on the ground and beaten) if you might get caught? A very interesting question. Could or would you destroy an attacker out of race after they are already out of commission, assuming you could get away with it.
Very hard to answer. I would hope I would be able to control myself enough not to do this. I don’t think it’s ok to destroy an attacker out of race after they are down and out. You already won the fight, now move on. You’ve committed excessive harm compared to the harm that was done to you. But rage takes over and people just go blind.
10. Could you execute a death penalty prisoner if all you had to do was pull a plug? Not sure if I could do this one either. Might just give it to someone way more coldblooded than I am and let them have the honors.
I used to be much more coldblooded, and I had many murder fantasies. Not about innocent people mind you! Mostly about people I hated, even family members. A lot about my enemies here and there. I still have these from time to time, but they are much reduced and only last for a bit, then I get over it and it fades out. I also fantasied about killing enemies in war a lot, even executions. I really enjoyed these fantasies! They were hot!
I don’t know what’s happened to me, but I have become way less coldblooded as I have aged.
