    If so, can you describe what would motivate you to take another's life??

    Yes and without hesitation. It would require a threat to my well being or the well being of another.
    A serious threat.

    My 11 year old daughter would be the only thing that would cause me to kill someone I think.
    I have some respect for those that let the law deal with paedophiles and such...I'm not sure if I could be that controlled.

    Under the right circumstance pretty much everybody could kill.

    We are, after all, a species of KILLER APES.

    The patina of civility most of us have stems from the fact that most of us do not have to kill to survive.

    Threat to your well being???

    That covers alot of area. A threat to someone's well being could be ruining your high-score on Call To Duty: Black Ops.

    I think it has to be a matter of survival, not just well being.

    I could kill. For many reasons. But I only consider it for defense of self or others. At least until society collapses.

    But seriously, folks . . .

    If you live in a state that utilizes capital punishment, you can (and DO) kill other humans all the time. When they shoot the juice, it is being shot in the name of "The PEOPLE of the State of . . . "

    That's YOU, brother (and sister).
