I was watching the latest TF Prime episode called "Convoy" when I came across a thought in this episode that surprised me. Part of the plot in this story reminds me of the ticking time bomb scenario. The Autobots had to safely take a highly radioactive bomb of mass destruction into military hands while a group of advance terrorists were trying to take it and. kill. everyone. At the end of the episode, the Autobots were able defeat evil (as usual), even while Decepticon interference held them back. They had been able to save the day once again... However, here is an interesting question... what if Prime had not recovered so quickly? And an even better question... what if the Autobots had to harm - or worse kill - the human terrorists to stop them from stealing the bomb. Everyone knows the Autobots have sworn to never ever harm any sentient beings... ever. But, the terrorists were trying to kill millions of lives... is that a big enough excuse to break their strict beliefs? As a result, I thought of two different possibilities (don't get too excited, I'm not Prowl or anything!) Possibility 1 (deontologist theory): Prime's team chooses not to harm the terrorists and fail to stop their mission. In retrospect, since Prime didn't stop the radioactive explosion, the death's of million would be technically caused by his moral bases, therefore harming the humans. Possibility 2 (utilitarian theory): Prime's team kills off (I know, unimaginable!) the terrorist threat and saves millions of lives. However, doing so would end their strict rule and would make them no better than the Decepticons they fight everyday.... So what do you think of these situations TF fans?
