Would You Kill this Kitten?

Would You Kill this Kitten?

Would you kill this kitten? How about if you "knew" that in the future, this little cougar will have a part in hurting someone you love?

Godwin's Law asserts that "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1". Personally, I try to avoid Nazi or Hitler references, but in politics they are increasingly a fair game. Last week, Republican presidential candidates were asked "If they could go back in time, would they kill baby Hitler?" Jeb Bush answered "Hell yeah, I would!", And Ben Carson answered "I'm not in favor of aborting anybody". Just the mere attempt to answer such a [stochastic] hypothetical question should eliminate these candidates. That is not a "thought experiment" as some have suggested. The only correct answer can be "'Mu': unask the question".

N.B. A "stochastic hypothetical" is not a "hypothetical stochastic".
