Trolley Problem and the Hegelian Dialectic

Did anybody ever notice that the great Trolley Problem about ethics is a Hegelian Dialectic practice to trap you into 1 result (blood on your hands) given in the form of 2 options (switch tracks or inaction)?  The whole premise of the Trolley Problem is that you keep ending up with only 2 bad choices given to you by tenacious philosophers who will not allow more than the 2 given choices.  They want you to say that you will choose one of the choices they presented to you.  There is obviously intent going on here, though nobody would want to admit that.  They want you to declare your choice between the 2 while convincing you there are no other options.  They want so bad to hear you say it.  Why?

Wake up.

Trap Questions

Why do false prophets focus on the speck in your eye rather than the beam in their own eye?
Because hypocrites create trap questions to get people arguing about nothing.
A trap question would be:  Can the internet be measured by miles or cubits?

Have you noticed that people are arguing about many trap questions lately?

Matthew 7:5

Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
