Would You Have Killed Hitler?
It seems like a straightforward enough question — kill one evil man to save millions of innocent lives. But for some, the moral implication of murder is simply too much to bear, no matter the target. New research into the ethical quandary found that men were significantly more likely to overcome their qualms about homicide as long as it served the greater good. But women had more trouble breaking moral conventions, even if it meant saving lives, and were more likely to let the Führer live.
