Here is a scenario for all you (l)iberals out there…
As you are walking across a bridge, you see a bus below about to hit an oncoming truck, which will kill everyone on board the bus. On the bridge in front of you is a man leaning precariously close to the edge, teetering on falling. He is morbidly obese, with enough bulk and weight to stop the bus and save all on board… if he were to fall in front of the bus.
The man has dark stains in the creases of his face. Marks and lines obviously gathered from a hard life underground mining coal. Poor knowledge of diet and choices in lifestyle have resulted in his overweight and sagging body; further exacerbated by inactivity resulting from an uninsured workplace injury. He wears a ‘Make America Great Again’ cap, and as you approach you can hear him mutter something about the “homo’s and negre’s ruinin’ this country”.
The luxury bus is so wide that it spills into adjacent lanes, forcing other drivers into the gutter to avoid a collision. Emblazoned on the side of the bus are decals that clearly identify the passengers as the children of corporate and congressional elites. The same politicians and ‘Captains of Industry’ who have poisoned rivers and oceans with fracking, oil and chemicals, ‘downsized’ thousands in pursuit of their own greed, and flooded in to the Trump administration like flies onto the rotting carcass of democracy.
If you push the man from the bridge, you can save all the children.
If you do not, you will save the man; but all the children will die.
What do you choose to do?
