If you had the legal authority to kill anyone you wanted at any time would you do it?

    let's say your government elelected to to the position of "Messenger of death" giving you the power to kill anyone you wanted anytime you wanted would you kill people? You could walk into any prison or jail or end the life of anyone you feel like needs to die and no matter who it was it would be completely legal and up to your discretion.

    I've thought about this in the past and there is no one I've encountered in my life, so far, that I'd want to kill. There's several people whose teeth I'd kick in, but not kill.

    I don't think I could do it, really. I don't want to be anybody's moral enforcer. If I ever did take advantage of the power, it would be an overresponse to some trivial slight.

    There are so many "problems" in my life that could be eliminated with no illegality of murder. Are you fucking kidding me I would paint the town red with my shotgun.

    Absolutely. The hard truth in the world is that there are some people that just need to die.

    This.

    Most people would want to kill people "if it's legal", but when it comes down to it, not many people would be able to do it. "Normal" people kill others by accidents; not willingly and knowingly.

    To a lesser extent, it's similar to people saying I won't screw up my kids life when I'm a parent because they were messed up by theirs.

    People that say they won't be stupid with money they didn't earn, lottery or whatever, but most do.

    I'd at least issue a final warning:

    "Slower traffic: move to the right"

    Just throw the body into a body bag. It's really easy and quick with two people, and you probably won't get blood on your shirt. Then, you can move it around with total ease if you need to. Otherwise, just leave it there. I'm a problem-solver like that.

    Prison or jail?

    I was thinking Congress and corporate boardrooms.

    You said anyone.

    Also, is there a wizard involved here who protects me and loved ones from retaliation? Otherwise, somebody doing this job would very quickly either be a) bribed to take out good people and leave the corrupt alone, or b) whacked.

    Without getting all weird and macabre, people always think that it's going to be hard before you actually do it. When actually presented with the situation, you'd be shocked on how easy it is to turn on. After ending a human life, you think that you're going to experience this watershed moment full of emotions like horror, doubt, satisfaction from being victorious in your conflict, etc. However, none of those things are actually there, which is what it so difficult to process. You think that you should be feeling all those things, and when you aren't, you start to think that something is wrong with you. You start to wonder if you're unhinged or broken, but when you start talking to others who have been there before, you realize that all those emotions are just a bunch of Hollywood beliefs. The truth is that it's really easy, and if you were doing the right thing (shooting someone who was shooting at you, for example), you won't have any moral questions about what you did. You start seeing violence as a practical solution for certain problems. Today, I would have no problems with shooting a terrorist, drug lord, or serial killer right in the face in front of his wife and kids, and then going to bed and sleep like a baby. For scum like that, they just need to die. Their existence is harmful to society, and they need to be removed for the betterment of the human species.

    A good purge of thieves and rapists and corrupt politicians would be a good start.
