    i find myself being more of a take a bullet person. true some people at some times need to be 'put down'. but i dont have the backbone to follow through with it/ live with my guilt.

    To be unable to would be extraordinarily maladaptive, unfortunately.

    I'd like to think I'd be capable of killing to prevent further death, be it my own or of others, but it's impossible to say having never been in those circumstances.

    I wouldn't have much of a problem killing a human.

    Animals are a different matter though.

    The only situation in which I could ever feel justified killing someone would be to save my own life from an attack, or to defend a loved one. I'm not saying I'm against the military necessarily or any of that jazz, just me personally.

    Leverage is everything--barring physical handicaps, everyone could probably kill given certain circumstances. That's not the same as liking it though.

    Could I kill another person? Well, definitely not under normal circumstances.

    The only situation I think it could possibly happen is if me or loved ones were at the edge of death and this led me to completely lose my mind for long enough. Or perhaps just losing my mind completely is enough...

    Other living things? I could not kill an animal unless a human's survival is at stake. Insects... only if they are close to hurting someone. Plants... only if it is ultimately useful to do so. I do not care very much for harmful bacteria.

    There are an infinite number of scenarios in which I would kill another human. I have and will kill animals when necessary or convenient. I would also use the homicide(or threat of) if I thought it might provide some security or deter violence, exploitation, resource-appropriation, etc.


    Keep in mind I was watching one of those dramatic post-apocalypse documentaries earlier.
    “Some people will tell you that slow is good – but I’m here to tell you that fast is better. I’ve always believed this, in spite of the trouble it’s caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba…”

    I think I probably could kill, the living with it would be more difficult than the act itself I suspect. I'm a conscientious sort of person and would have to have a good reason, such as self defence.

    I most likely could if the situation called for it.

    If I had to, as would anyone else assuming they are not too weak to do so.
