    Hell no. I personally care for others and not just myself. If I killed someone, I'd be scarred for life.

    What's the point of this debate? Morality is subjective. All I've really seen so far is people trying to proclaim their morality is more 'just' than someone else's.

    But for real, I would. People die every day and if by my hands I would not mind in the slightest, although it could depend on the person.. single mother, probably not. Some prick, definitely.

    That is just such an outrageous position I don't believe you.
    why not? you can save at least 500 lives with $1,000,000 if you donate to the right charity. A net gain of 499 lives is a good thing.

    Edited:

    Fuck no, lives can't be measured in money.
    sure they can

    Do you guys not know how this works? When you push the button and get the million you are the next person the button kills on press. It's the devil's deal, you get a very short time to spend the million before another sucker takes it.

    No. Beyond the fact that I wouldn't kill anyone for money, I've seen documentaries on people who do. Unlike whatever you might think, these people have some severe damage to their psych as a result, most of them can't sleep at night.

    A dark part of me would say yes, but ultimately I couldn't bring myself to do it. I think I could only bring myself to kill if it was in defense of myself or others. I wouldn't do it out of simple greed.

    But is it that random person's responsibility to save the lives of those 500 people? Shouldn't they have a say in it?

    Why the fuck would anyone kill someone for a million dollars? Credit card information costs about $2 per US credit card online. You could just set up a front business and take money from these cards, and buy more cards, and make millions of dollars by the end of the year. And you could also launder money not to get caught, by using the untraceable p2p e-currency Bitcoin and such for laundering.

    I am not understanding what compels some people in this thread to lambast others and try to be the "civilized" forum-goer who has morals. Its easy to go on the internet, and say anything, but I would bet 95% of the people in this thread would press that button, or pull that trigger if it actually happened.

    Its easy to talk about something that frankly will never happen to them, so people will say whatever they want to make themselves look better.

    Ontopic: Yes.

    Speaking in hypothetical, it is easy to be greedy and imagine all the ways I could use the money. Past this, however, I am not sure I could handle knowing I just killed someone. I consider myself to be a desensitized individual, so I really will never know unless I experience it -- I do not plan to do this, though.

    But, I can understand the moral side and the greedy side. Considering how many different situations can go along with this choice, it would be a very difficult one to make.

    Give me a break you don't know that. like you can even attempt to expose the integrity of what someone believes over the internet or the fact that they're proclaiming it on the internet devalues their moral reasoning. Or that a trial needs to be established in order to challenge that mentality. Just basically like me saying yeah right the people who would, couldn't because they would be too pussy.

    If that's how you actually imagine the morals of most people to be then you have major problems.

    then why don't you start robbing/killing people to take their money and save starving africans? seriously, i'm actually asking - you've decided that it's a moral imperative to kill people so you can save more, so why don't you put your ideals into practice?

    Assuming it would be legal to make the decision for the money in this case, robbing/killing people would add an extra level of complexity. Obviously, you would then be committing social crimes and would be risking your freedom/life for the goal in such a case. It is an entirely different situation.

    Just like I'd do it if it was some warmongering asshole who exploited people and went to war, raped, pillaged, etc.

    Thing is, it's random. Again, I still don't think I would or could, if only for my conscience.

    I would never kill a complete stranger for all the money in the world. It disturbs me how people would just kill some innocent person who did nothing wrong, all because some greedy person wanted a bit of money.
    Maybe you're already rich but a million dollars is more than a bit of money in my eyes.

    Couldn't do it, even if it was some serial rapist murderer. Taking someone's life no matter if they're a scumbag or not would live with me for the rest of my life.

    And quite frankly, 99% of the pople here who are saying yes, wouldn't have the balls to do it either. That's my personal opinion.

    If I am allowed details of the person I will be killing, and time to think about the person, then I will give you a yes or a no.
    But as the question pertains to a complete stranger, I assume that means I will NOT be allowed information.
    Ergo: I will NOT kill someone for a million dollars, under the circumstances.

    I wouldn't kill anyone for any amount of money.

    However, if I were forced to choose between of killing someone I care about or killing a stranger, I would kill the stranger. Even if I had to do it personally.
