Moral dilemma #12

A group of people are exploring a cave a little way up a cliff on the coast. The tide turns and the cave starts to fill with water. The mouth of the cave is very narrow and the first person to clamber out is a very fat woman who manages to get totally stuck. As the cave fills with water, it becomes clear that all of them will drown, except the fat woman, whose head is out of the cave. Curiously, one of the group has some dynamite – enough to remove the woman from the mouth of the cave. There is no other way to get her loose, but this will inevitably kill her. If they don’t use the dynamite, everyone else will drown.

Should they use the dynamite to dislodge the woman?

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
