If you could have one of your greatest fantasies come true at the cost of making one of your greatest nightmares come true; would you do it?

You have the ability to choose the fantasy but not the nightmare.

Contradiction.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Correct. Fascio-communism cannot co-exist with Minarchy.

lol not all fantasies involve the government. but actually a contradiction can occur in other examples too. for instance if i wanted to have a threesome with my bf and have him like it (which is my fantasy)... at the same time, i don't want to have a threesome and have him like it (which is my nightmare) lol.

Greatest fantasies mind you.

Now, if the rules are, I pick any fantasy, and the greatest nightmare of those that don't contradict the fantasy happens, sure, I'll take that. I don't even know what that nightmare is, but it can't be that bad.

but actually a contradiction can occur in other examples too. for instance if i wanted to have a threesome with my bf and have him like it (which is my fantasy)... at the same time, i don't want to have a threesome and have him like it (which is my nightmare) lol.
Well, that's just your ambivalence. Unlike the incompatibility of certain political systems.

Doesn't this seem somewhat similar to the Corrupt-a-Wish thread?

Your fantasy (wish) comes true, but there is some sort of nightmare (corruption/negative downside) to it?

I had no intention of copying somebody elses idea; I just wanted to provide an interesting philisophical question. =P

You guys sure do like to ruin a decently interesting topic. That's tough, I think a nightmare could be way worse than a fantasy good, so no probably not.
Why kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?

I would want a worldwide marxist society. For the nightmare I would have the world's spider population rapidly increase(yes, i'm a chronic arachiphobe).

Same. My worst nightmare isn't worth my best fantasy.

I suppose I may as well clarify the fantasy. "Minarchy" is not sufficient with the level of power specified in the wish-- I take "Being the immortal autocrat of a minarchy."

I can't imagine a nightmare that that isn't worth, except one that would contradict it, which would make the trade null and void.

lol No, I wouldn't ever risk the chance of having someone kidnap me, tear my skin off bit by bit, saw parts of my body off, and eat my brain.
I could give a f about no haters as long as my ishes love me.

What. Your fantasy wouldn't contradict that?
