Moral Dilemma
A choice between two options
that violate one’s moral principles
Extreme example of a moral dilemma:
You are an inmate in a concentration camp. A
sadistic guard is about to hang your son who
tried to escape, and he orders you to pull the
chair from underneath him. He says that if you
don’t, he will kill not only your son but also
another innocent inmate as well. You don’t have
any doubt that he means what he says. What
choice do you make?
