This brings up a question that's been nagging at me for a while. Would an
FAI make this kind of decision? Assume that the FAI is mature and in
control of earth's resources.
1) If it can act to save a million people by sacrificing one person, would
it do that?
2) If so, then if it could save a million people by sacrificing 999,999
people, would it do that?
