Just some light hearted questins for the day.

I give my students random assignments; “Things to ponder” and figured I shared.  I have two reasons for sharing. One, this forum seems to have gotten a bit stagnant. And two, I’m interested in hearing the differing opinions between the students I’ve brainwashed, (heh >:}) and those who haven’t be scrubbed my me.

 

 

Scenario # 1-You need a laptop for work or school but don't have the money to purchase the one you need at full price. It's Black Friday, and the very laptop you need is on sale for a screaming price of $200, an amount you can afford. Of course when you get to the store there aren't enough for everyone there.

If you could cut in line with out anyone noticing, essentially taking the computer from the person behind you, would you?

 

*would you do it for a loved one?

In the frenzy to get through the door would you be willing to shove or hit someone to assure that you got in the store first?

*What if you could get lost in the crowd and no one would know you did it?

Scenario # 2 -We are at war with Korea, China will no longer trade with us, our dollar is worth less than the paper it's printed on; there is a food shortage. Shelves in the stores are empty. Even if you had something of value to trade, there is no food to trade.  The government is rationing food and people have to stand in “soup lines” to get anything to eat. Martial law is in effect to keep the masses in order.

If you could cut in line with out anyone noticing, essentially taking the food from the person behind you, would you?

 

*would you do it for a loved one?

Would you be willing to shove or hit someone to assure that you got food first?


Scenario # 3 - Essentially the world is over, the 2012 predictions have come true. Some how you survived and are living in a post-apocalyptic world. There is NO food, no animals, no law, things are chaos and the population has dwindled to about 1/50th of what it is now (That would be a little over 6 million people in the US). In your travels and scavenging you find a small house, someone obviously lives there.

Would you be willing to break in a take there rations an supplies, if they weren't home?

What if they were home? Would you fight them for it? kill them for it?

 

*Would you do it for a loved one?

Put yourself in the most dire situation you can imagine, who could you trust? Is there anyone that you can really trust not to turn on you when things got down to "it's you or me". How hard would you fight to keep your humanity? Is it worth more than your survival?

Would you give up your humanity to save someone else’s humanity?

What does this have to do with martial arts?
