    why do i find this interesting? Lol


    Yea i guess it can go both ways...

    But the answer is still disagree..cause even if theres just one person that cant be bought because they have nothing to lose it voids the argument.

    Disagree. Quantifying sentient beings with a price tag is dehumanizing and implies that one's worth is tied together with their salary.

    So no, it's a disgusting concept.

    To do what? Humiliate yourself on national television? Murder a child?

    I would say that I definitely have a price on the former (If it helps me retire comfortably 10 years earlier, of course I'd do it), and do not on the latter. I suspect most people feel the same way -- it depends on what you ask them to do.

    Maybe 90% of the population has a price. I think there are those who do not.

    The price need not be monetary.

    I can't think of anything I wouldn't do to keep my family from being murdered.

    What if you don't have a family?

    People tend to do what the person torturing them asks for.

    They also probably have friends, a girl or boyfriend etc.

    It would depend on the situation and the person. Money is not all there is for 'price', as has been mentioned. If the price is friends and family being hurt that makes it much murkier indeed.. what if it is a person that 'has nothing to lose' but must do something or innocent people are killed... I think there's always some level to lose but it would depend on the skill of the manipulator as to how the game went down.

    Depends what the situation is. Will I rejoin the military as a fighter pilot for $200,000? I'd rather die.
