What is currently commonly known as “the Trolley Problem” is an old chestnut in moral philosophy. History and variants here:
In today’s superheated psychosocial climate, a new variant has arisen:
A child is lying unconscious across the trolley track. Donald Trump is standing nearby, oblivious, thinking about his ratings. A trolley is rapidly bearing down on the scene. You only have time to do one of two things:
(a) Pull the child off the track to safety
(b) Push Trump in front of the trolley
Which do you do?
