    Default Just engaged in a dumb debate in vent.

    I said that if parents HAD to chose one kid to die or all to die, there would be a natural preference for which kid a parent would chose.

    Why?

    Because parents, despite altruistic beliefs, will have more of a preference for one kid over another. That survival is the natural state, and (assuming you couldn't martyr yourself for your children) that parents would have a favoritism behind their choice of who lives or dies.

    Thoughts?

    I seriously see this as one of those topics, no one wants to respond honestly on because they would like to believe there is always a more fluffy moral way to see things.

    It is wrong to say you would chose one child over another, it is wrong to not love your children equally.

    Such crap.

    My parents would probably let me die over my other sister. They probably would pick her out of all seven children.

    I'll probably have a favorite too, but I don't think the situation would arise to where I would have to pick one or none, so meh.

    You have one kid. Case closed.

    So you would let all your children die, rather than just pick one?

    Aren't most of the debates dumb? Vent isn't exactly the pinnacle of intellectualism (not saying anything about intelligence).
