Re: Does It Get Better???

I thought the moral dilemma was rather trite and artificial myself.

We all know the Naz...excuse me, I mean the Cardassians...did horrible things to the Je...Ga...Pol...Bajorans, but how does it honor the sacrifice of those who were killed to simply discard any medical advances that may have been discovered, advances which could save who knows how many people? Just because a discovery was made through unethical means doesn't mean that putting that discovery into practice is unethical. The problem is the means, not the ends.

Frankly, if anyone can learn anything from however I might end up dying, I would consider it an -honor- if it was used to save other peoples' lives, and a dreadful, dreadful waste if whatever had been learned was lost.
