    Damnit duck, I just submitted this

    PatientZed

    No.

    “No, you idiot.”

    No, but you are obligated to beat up the editor of this book for leaving”effect” in the question, when it should say “affect.” Unless he meant to say that this act will not cause Hitler’s rise to power. Then I guess it’s OK.

    Slightly more dumb than all other moral dilemmas.

    “So, Hitler started the Holocaust because he thought some Jew stole his wallet in 1933, huh?”

    Where’s the option to staple Hitler’s nutsack to the back of his throat?

    Ethically obligated? No. Morally obligated? I’d say yes. Ethically, you shouldn’t take it, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t love that shit in retrospect. Or love telling other people that story later. Just imagine the one smart ass old man in a nursing home telling his kids “YEA! I was the asshole that stole HITLER’S WALLET!”

    Are you operating under different definitions of Ethical and Moral? Because, I think most of us believe they mean the same thing.

Dragyn’s personal morals, on the other hand, say that in particular cases, it’s ok to steal from someone just to fuck up their day.

    What? No. Why would you be ethically obligated to break social contract, even if you don’t like the person? Particularly if it won’t stop any of their actions that meet your disapproval – it’s not punishment for a wrong if the person doesn’t know the purpose of the action. This would be just stealing for the sake of stealing, an act which is by most social standardsethically wrong.

    You’d not be morally obligated either.

    Also, pretty much what AgZed said about poor wording and questions of advanced knowledge.
