Could you imagine yourself killing someone?

Posted by: EdgeOfTheInfinite

I need to prove to someone that people have morals. So imagine that you would 100% get away with murder. Could you imagine doing it?

  • Depends on who I perform it on.

  • Any honest person would answer Yes

  • Yes, I can imagine myself killing someone. I can imagine myself killing anyone. But would I act; no.

  • Yes I can imagine myself doing that but I'm not really sure about the benefits I would get by killing someone but heyy killing is fun... in video games..

  • Undoubtedly, I am Raskolkinov. I am not evil, I am not apathetic. Even if murder were legal, if I could get away with it, I don't think I'd be able truly get away with it in my mind. The idea of depriving someone of life, even an evil person, is a strange concept, and it is mostly because I am a nihilist. While I am not afraid of death, it is the concept of death that scares me in that, at once you are and then you are not. Murder gives people the power of god (I am an atheist, so this is just a turn of the phrase), to make them cease to exist. It's a harrowing thought, and I'd imagine that I would have certain deep regrets after the fact, incredible regrets, mostly because of the fact that I have a habit of thinking to much. I am too empathetic. The murder of a person would effectively be like committing suicide, though, not in the individualistic sense, but in the sense that I have had my own life deprived from me, for the fact that I mentally bare the weight of someone's entire life on my back. All of this culminates to the fact, though, that while I could not commit some Ellision act of murder out of American Psycho /myself/, I can imagine myself pushing the button if it came down to it. I can kill from a distance, but were someone screaming at me to murder them, I don't think I could truly bare it objectively.

  • No need for imagination. I HAVE killed before. Not sure how many. I did it defending my country. I have no regrets.

  • No. I can't imagine myself killing anyone. I'm simply incapable of it.

I can imagine myself killing two -- ha! Ha! -- two people, ha! Nay, three! Ha! Ha! Ha! Nay! Ten! Nay! Tens! Hundreds! Millions! Everyone! I can also imagine myself with a giraffe head. So, what's your point?
