Today we have something special planned !!
We compiled a list of hard to answer questions and we want you to take the weekend to answer as few or as many of them as you feel like. You know, to give us a feeling of the kind of person you are.
Remember you can answer as few or as many as you like. To give you more time and make this easier for you, tomorrow we will have personality quizzes on our blogs for you, so you have less work. So, no excuses!
Here are the questions inspired by The Lux Series:
- How far would you go to protect someone you love? Would you kill to save them?
Yes, I will. As a 3rd generation to the people who saved themselves from the Nazis during The WWII (from both sides of my family) I learn the full meaning of survival and the value of life:
My grandpa swear to fight the Nazis and did so he joined the Russian army and then polish one as a Tank Officer and reach to Berlin their he got wounded.
This is the education that i got since i was little - never to lower my head to any humiliation ( include bulling) and this what I am passing to my own children.
I always fight the same against injustices, discrimination, and bullying, no matter which one.... and it is important to transfer this to others so no body will exploited others without sever punishment.
- When do you think are people allowed to decide about the life of others? What makes one life more valuable than that of another?
As a rule, all life is valuable and precious, people should not decide for others life.... as it is can lead to biases.
- “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” for example, the government faces the responsibility of shooting down a commercial plane that has been taken over by terrorists and is about to “attack”. Rightly so? Can one sacrifice the life of the few to save the life of the many?
The positive, answer to this case is very sad and difficult. I think the government should have more then one scenario to this kind of situations and they should keep there mind always open and totally outside the box.
As we all know, since 911 things had change (but sadly, it wasn't the only case a long the human history) - it is a real case scenario, to scarified the lives of the few in purpose to save thousands. The terrorist, also, know about this policy and they take into their account that nobody will negotiate with them, even about lives.
- The US is one of only 26 countries worldwide that is still actively imposing the death penalty. (The death penalty is still legal in 36 countries, though 10 of them haven’t made use of it in the last decade or are under a moratorium.) What are your thoughts on the matter?
I am against it.
First it is cruel, and it don't make us no better then the criminals themselves. Why us, as a society, will make other people to do the execution of this kind of decisions and turn them to monsters..
Second, there always a chance that you make a mistake and sentence the wrong person to die... and it is irreversible if you discovers it.
Third it never prevented from others from doing or repeating horrendous things. So it ineffective punishment... best trying to educate people and teach them compassion.
- What are your thoughts on teenage marriage?
No, No, No!!! live and learn first.
- If someone’s blood was possibly the cure to some of the world’s most dire diseases, would it be right to use them for their blood? What if it meant they would have to spend a lifetime in labs and hospitals or secret government facilities and weren’t able to have a normal life? What if they didn’t give their consent? What if you were that person?
This is another difficult question - but as a scientist and I can give you few answers. - First if somebody can give us solution to a cure, we must check the possibility how it is done and what is the machination behind his immunity. But it is doesn't mean that he has to scarified his life and spend all life in the lab. The science has the tools to copy this machination to artificial machination. The science has the tools to produce many thing outside the body of anyone (for example look how we produce vaccinations... we don't use human bodies to this. We can do this in vitro).
- What if alien lifeforms actually existed among us? Do you think you would be accepting of them or skeptical?
First if they are already live among us we should learn about them as much as we can. As the history proved many time before, The knowledge is worth more then ignorance.
- The earth is no longer habitable. Another planet has been discovered that can support life, but it is inhabited by a lower/equal/higher life form. Do humans have a right to take over the planet?
Yes, we have to survive. But of course we should do it while respecting other life forms.
