great benefit to the orphanage, and the children’s lives would turn from poor to prosperous. Would you:

b: Do nothing and leave the robber and the orphans alone?
Explain your answer.

that you have just enough time to flip a switch that will send the train down a different track, saving your son. However, tied to the
other track, is your granddaughter, the daughter of the very son in danger of being run over. Your son is begging and pleading with
you not to flip the switch, not to kill his daughter. What would you do?
