    not making a choice is a choice in and of itself

    you're an elephant centrist

    You misunderstand both your own poll and centrism. The choice you presented us is not which elephant to kill, but which elephant to save from being killed. I wish neither to be saved.

    I don’t faff about with what actions must be taken in an ideal world, but the actions I can take in the moment to drive us towards that ideal

    Dumbo will get his day, let Babar be the first to fall

    This poll only had one elephant from my childhood, which makes it a very easy choice.

    this is about you, two elephants, and an elephant gun with a single bullet

    this is about the measure of a person, the choice in a crucial moment

    trying to consciousness objection this shit is saying in a pinch you'd let both of these elephants walk

    and then it's just you with that loaded elephant gun, and the knowledge of what you've let loose into the world

    Okay how many times does this have to be explained to you? YOU DIDN'T ASK US TO KILL ONE YOU ASKED US TO SPARE ONE. BY NOT CHOOSING I LET NEITHER ELEPHANT GO FREE FOR ITS CRIMES.

    no, you've chosen which one you would rather spare

    the other one will be executed based on your choice; I've never established that their execution will take place regardless

    you've made some assumptions about this dilemma

    I feel like this has gotten a bit intense, unlike this very lighthearted and tremendously important question regarding elephant termination

    Dumbo
    Dumbo the movie is a very racist movie but as far as I can remember Dumbo the elephant, himself, is not complicit in it.

    Babar has agency and uses that agency to decide that whites are super awesome.

    Babar has an heir, his line will continue, ergo he is more expendable. Also Dumbo is a child and executing children is morally abhorrent.

    I didn’t really see any Babar-related media growing up or if I did it failed to make any impact

    Whereas dumbo I recall every detail:
    1. had a feather
    2. could fly around
