Daily Prompt: Shipwrecked!

by michelle w.

Read the story of Richard Parker and Tom Dudley. Is what Dudley did defensible? What would you have done?

4 men set sail on a yacht bound for Australia. After the Yacht sunk and they spent several weeks in a LifeBoat with little food and no water. In desperation they killed the youngest of the Men and ate him in order to Survive.

“Legal background and theory… The morality, ethics, and legality of the taking of another’s life to increase one’s own chances of survival have been discussed in thought experiments from the Plank of Carneades to The Case of the Speluncean Explorers, but there have been few legal cases where the question has been tested.”

I don’t agree in anyway shape or form with the taking of someones life. Yes desperate times call for desperate measures but when it comes to murdering someone to feast on them. nope don’t agree with that what-so-ever.
