Sorry, but playing god with people's lives is not "simple numbers game" or a game at all, and it's either right or wrong. Where they are is inconsequential.
Decisions are driven everyday by the circumstance in which an individual exists.

It's dishonest to say life-and-death decisions aren't driven by numbers and by circumstance. The whole point of Troi's command test was that she may have to pick someone to die so others can live.

Everyday doctors have to pick candidates that qualify for liver transplants leaving others to die. You don't think circumstance drives those decisions?
