Share Your World for 28 Feb 2022

Melanie certainly picked some difficult questions this week, meaning difficult for me to be my usual hilarious self with. You know me, I’m always up for a challenge…

Is any one person’s life worth more than another’s? Why or why not? No. All are created equal.

Can a good person do evil things and remain a good person? Under what circumstances? I know a very good man whose seven-year-old daughter was kidnapped, tortured, raped and murdered. He said that if they ever caught the guy, all he’d want was five minutes alone with him. I assume he meant so he could beat the perpetrator to a bloody pulp. I would certainly still consider him a good person.

Is somebody morally culpable if they take a morally wrong action at the orders of a superior? What if their life is at stake? I believe that a person has an obligation to refuse to obey a superior if the superior is asking him to do something immoral, even if it means they lose their life.

People had widely mixed opinions about illegal bananas, so let’s take that a step further this week: What would be the worst thing for a government to make illegal? Self defense…

  1. I enjoyed your questions and that poor man who lost his daughter in such a horrific way….I would not blame him at all. My dad killed other men during WW2 but he was a good man. My mom set the dynamite under the bridges to blow them up so the Germans could not advance. Yes, she was part of the German Resistance. My grandfather ended up on a concentration camp for not agreeing with the Nazi policies. My mom was taken out of the home and her brother was sent to the Russian Front. You know, I don’t blame someone if they follow orders because they are too scared that their family will be killed. I have not been in that position. I would like to think I would take the noble stance but I just have no idea.
    How can one make a decision that one person’s life is more important than another’s? I can see the leaders of their countries be taken away for safety but this is not necessarily the right thing.
    I am pro choice and Roe vs Wade should not be rescinded…the country is going backward but my biggest issue….censorship. Never take away the books or take away what truly happened in history. Knowledge is key so that history doesn’t repeat itself. Huckleberry Finn and To Kill A Mockingbird should never be taken off the shelves.

  2. Thank you John for Sharing Your World and some outstanding memes! You rose to the occasion magnificently! 😀 The guy that lost the daughter? I don’t believe the perpetrator would survive that five minutes. Pond scum who hurt children (whether in that horrible way or by ignoring them, starving them, beating them regularly, emotionally abusing them..) deserve nothing less. In my way of thinking that’s God’s job though. I’m sure those sort get what they deserve, if not here then over there. I wouldn’t blame the father at all if he did kill the low life. Retribution. But. I bet the father would still carry the pain regardless of what happened to the criminal. Very thought provoking answer (to all the questions!). Ninja babies? Scariest thing EVER. 😮 😛😆 Have a fantastic week!
