is it morally permissible ( ethical) to kill one innocent person in order to save more innocent people.

i say yes... cuz you'd be harming more people (victims and families of victims) by killing the load of people than the one person

well if you didnt put the other people in danger then it wouldnt be your fault if they die, however if you kill the one person to save the other, it is your fault that the person has died.
the morals of it are clear though that it is ethical the kill the one person to save more.

killing is my business... and business is good

To me its like Iron Man said to the Sentry in WWH (yes I know I'm a nerd) something along the lines of not acting in a way is making a choice to kill those people as actuing is the choice to kill these different people.

Yeah, I'd kill the single person. Unless that person was more valuable or had more potential to help than the rest. Which is stupid, we're all valuable for something. Yeah I'd kill the one.

I guess none of you lot has read Crime And Punishment. And you should. Just do it. There's an awesome translation somewhere on the Net, 1913, I think, or something like that, cause I compared the Russian text with the translation, and it was almost as good.

I've read Crime and Punishment.
Now that you mention it, this thread is very similar to the same topic approached in the book (aside form humans and superior-humans). He murders the money-lender believing he has done society a favor.. in the end his conscious drives him to confession. Powerful book, yes, I strongly recommend it.

Well, that was my point exactly. This theory he had is the same TS mentioned. Look where it got Rodion (the main character). It doesn't even matter if you're religious or not, that's the whole point. It's a road to ruin regardless of how you're trying to justify it. Read this book, whoever's interested in this topic. I mostly hate our literature, but this is a gem. Has some "gory" stuff, too.

Wait, so what happens to the families of the multitude of people who die? Are they not aggrieved as well?

Well, it really depends on the color skin the person has....

Lol jk....
For realz,
Yes I guess it would be ethical... but I dont like either of the options.

If its one black person and 50 white people then you kill the black guy

If its one white person and 50 black people you save the white guy

Well it depends how you aproach it
And if its a boat of criminals (dark knight:p or boat of priests and if the one person is a pope or a mass-muderer

But if they both parties were exactly neutral and nobody said take my life instead it would be one hell of an ultitimatum

There is no real answer

If somebody ever came to the situation in real life they would probably kill the tne person but that doesnt make it morally right
