    Context is key.

    Certainly in war. Certainly in defense.

    Where normal functioning of society is broken/displaced, I could kill for power.

    Morals to me are highly dependent on the situation at hand. That said, I have an innate disgust for revenge-related stuff. If I ever kill, it's probably going to be more for a functional/practical reason than emotional. ...except in 'compassion', which I've done for animals and would do for people.

    Killing is easy?!:eek: :horor: Please don't tell us what you do in your spare time.

    And if you do it right, there are no repercussions.
    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

    I can't vote but... if someone was going to kill me, I would kill them first if I could.
    Wyrd is a concept in Anglo-Saxon and Nordic culture roughly corresponding to fate. It is ancestral to Modern English weird, which has acquired a very different meaning.

    i wouldn't enjoy killing someone out of passion. i think i would enjoy it more if it was a passionless murder. but i can't think of an instance in which i would be in that situation.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    You forgot an option.

    I would kill for the pure enjoyment!

    (Provided I could get away with it.)

    But seriously, I truly think that if we didn't have laws threatening us, mankind would reveal its true nature.

    I think we're all capable of killing someone, but we don't because of laws.
