question for all
    #361520 - 07/26/01 05:22 PM (22 years, 7 months ago)

Say a group of scientists asks for a meeting with the leading politicians in the country to discuss the introduction of a new invention. The scientists explain that the benefits of the technology are indisputable, that the invention will increase efficiency and make everyone's life easier. The only down side, they caution, is that for it to work, forty-thousand innocent people will have to be killed each year.

Would the politicians decide to adopt the new invention or not?

Would the politicians? probably. Here in America, they would, anyways...

Scientists don't invent anything; they gather data and interpret it.

Not if they wanted to get elected again. What they would probably do is find a way to whittle the casualty rate down to 20,000, vote it in, and all you would hear is how they brought about this new invention AND saved 20,000 lives while doing it. Not THAT'S politics!

Is the glass half-full or half-empty? I say it is both.
