You are in the middle of your day when, all of a sudden, a space craft lands on the ground in front of you. Some men exit the craft, take you captive, and fly into outer space. There are no "aliens" aboard the ship; it is completely man made, and controlled by humans. The men who took you captive lead you to a room. Upon entering the room you see a man holding a gun to another man's head. You recognize the endangered man as a convicted sex offender, murderer and thief. He has no way of protecting himself from the immediate danger, and cannot escape, for he is seated in a chair and his hands and feet are bound. Also inside the room is a television broadcasting a live shot of the Earth. You are quickly seated and your hands and feet are subsequently bound to the chair. You have no weapons with you. You take note of everything in the room and realize that you cannot escape, the sex offender cannot escape... all you can do is negotiate. Violence is not an available course of action. The man holding the gun says to you, "I have the power to bring destruction upon the entire surface of the Earth, killing every living thing in the process, by simply pressing this button." He gestures to a large, red button on the control panel in front of him. "I also have the power to shoot this convicted criminal until he is dead. I am going to commit one of these acts, but I will let you choose for me. Which would you have me commit?" You begin by talking to him, saying things like "you don't want to do this" and you genuinely try to reason with him. You try some psychoanalysis on him, but it is to no avail... he's Irish. At last, he declares, "If your next words are not your decision, then I will shoot you and this criminal, and then I will destroy the Earth! Now... which would you have me commit?!" What do you say?
