This and that And I reject the notion that a drone pilot thousands of miles away from the civilians he is murdering is some sort of automaton. The hamster is not the moral agent, but the person who flips the switch that starts the machine that causes the balloon to pop in order to scare the hamster into running on its wheel, which causes a small boot on a stick to go 'round in a circle and kick a lever that causes the billiard ball to roll down the track and fall into the bucket, causing it to descend on a rope and pulley, resulting in a gear being turned that causes the restraint to open so that the bowling ball can fall on someone's head is. Ignoring the person who flips the switch that starts the machine that drops the bowling ball to crush someone's skull is the produce of presuppositions suggestive of your bias in this case. That works for the hamster. But what is the moral difference, in your opinion, between walking into a crowd of people and setting off a bomb, or playing the video game that flies the real model airplane to launch a rocket into that crowd of people, blowing them up all the same? • • • The obvious advice is prohibited by the rules. And the condition of he who avoids the question in order to presuppose about the questioner is quite obvious.
