    Default Save your loved one or X number of ppl?

    If you are in a situation where you can either choose to save your loved one or an X number of ppl, who would you choose?

    Usually most people would choose their loved one over a number of people. But would X make a difference if it reaches a certain number? Let's say 100 people? 1000 people? etc. Also would it be morally wrong for choose your loved one over a number of people?

    I would choose to save my loved one over 10 million strangers without thinking. Morally wrong?? I did not kill those 10 milllion strangers, did I. Family first, the rest later...

    Call me selfish but I save my love on too. Simple because, let ask this question. Do those millions of strangers even care about me or my love one? I'm sure majority of them will say No. If I save them, who would save me or my love one.

    My loved one. The strangers do not matter compared with the person close to my heart.

    Not at the expense of my loved ones.
    Even if the number going up to 1 billion, I wouldn't change my mind.

    lol some of people reply here remind me of XLN, haha she said something in the novel like, i don't care about you dead or alive or something along the line, i dont care about you or anybody else, i only care about YG, lol.

    but you see, GJ is a different story though. He's a general. He have the whole country on his shoulder. But who are we? we just normal people and normal people usually don't think like hero GJ, lolz.

    Actually Xiao Longnu said "if I die, I'm taking you with me." So in this case, she would kill her loved one first, then herself.

    Ah, what happy ending

    You called?

    Yeah, I'd sacrifice the one to save the many. Either way, it'd be hard to live down, but I can't stand seeing large numbers of people suffer when I *know* that I had the opportunity to affect the outcome.

    Spoken like a true Guo Jing fan.

    However, being a Xiao Feng fan, I'm naturally even more selfless:

    I would sacrifice myself to prevent anyone else from dying. Even the gods on Mt. Olympus would be moved and thus send troops just in time to save everyone.

    That's the best choice possible in a situation that really has no completely happy resolution, but the condition of this question doesn't provide us the option of sacrificing ourselves, only that loved one.

    In some ways, that's a much more difficult sacrifice to make than one's own life. When you're dead, you don't know anymore. Living with whatever you had to decide is much more difficult.
