And, for those of you who don’t think trolley problems are relevant to real life, imagine you have a vote in the US election but don’t feel either of the two leading candidates deserves to be President:

There are only two candidates likely to win: Trump and Clinton.

If you don’t vote for Clinton, Trump is more likely to win.

If you do vote for Clinton, you are supporting a candidate you don’t want.

Do you vote for Clinton?
