HOW I COULD JUST KILL A MAN!

Could you kill?

I don't mean murder or that sort of thing, but could you actually kill another human being? Say if Britain (or the country you may live in) comes under attack and the army has been exhausted, and it is down to civilians to fight against the aggressor. Could you take the life of another human? Could you kill that mind and take away that life? Can you kill? How would you feel about your killing?

Yeah I could, without a doubt, if it comes down to either my life being taken, or their life being taken. The question doesent even need to be asked.

If it came to that, i would - I suspose it would depend on how much I hated the agressor

To my shocking discovery, I might actually enjoy the killing.

I dont understand most people's reasoning here.
If you had to kill someone who was trying to kill you, why would this make you feel guilty? What would you feel guilty about? Its not your fault they tried to take your life..

I think the point is that reason has little to do with it. You can rationalise why you shouldn't feel guilty yet still feel that you wouldn't be able to live with the guilt if you actually did it

When you say kill them, by what means are you talking about? Bare hands, gun, knife etc.?

Unless someone's actually been in the situation i think it's very difficult to say.

I love the fact your question includes Cypress quote, but the answer is quite simply that I don't know. I expect I could, though I hope I never get in a position to have to make that decision.

i think i could DIE for someone, as in, if a close friend was being threatened i think i could take a bullet for them, but i don't think i could kill.

No, having said that, i could kill, but only for one person...my little sister, i could kill anyone for her, with my bare hands ( i sound so agressive, but it's true)

no, that wouldn't kill them. you'll need more than just one brick. How about... say a lorry of bricks?

I can kill, and I can always spin it to make it seem OK.

Most people can kill, it's just that they are yet to realise their killing potential.

i think it depends on the situation really. I wouldn't say that i have any 'killing potential', i wouldn't kill for the sake of it, i would say it's more my protective nature that would enable me to do it.
