Moral dilemma #9

Two men, Ahab and Bluebeard, are shipwrecked at sea. They’ve been swimming for some time and their strength is about to give out when they spot a wooden plank floating on the waves. It’s just large enough to support one of them, but not both. Ahab reaches the plank first and grabs it, but Bluebeard, faced with the prospect of drowning, pushes Ahab off the plank and kicks him away, condemning him to certain death. Bluebeard is eventually rescued.

Should he be tried for murder or had he acted in self-defence (as his life had been at risk)?

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.
