This is episode 135 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast!
If you've listened to our show before, you know that we have a love-hate relationship with philosophy. In many ways, it's fascinating, but it can also feel incredibly pointless because professional thinkers rarely agree. This episode is all about trolley problems - some of the toughest philosophical questions in history.
In the original problem, a trolley is about to slaughter five people tied to its tracks and we are given the option to direct it onto a different path where only one man is tied down. So we could save five lives, but in a way, we would be responsible for the death of the sixth man. What would you do?
But the fun doesn't stop there. We'll dive into the Trolley Problem Memes page on Facebook, which has a huge list of similar conundrums. The dilemmas include Harambe, Buddhism, the non-aggression principle, and much more. Some are comical, some are confusing, and all of them are interesting.
Tune in for all kinds of mind-bending hypothetical situations! Your hosts are Daniel Brown and Tim Baker. Enjoy!
