Would I work for an arms manufacturer? I will probably not have to decide this time, but it is an interesting question anyway. It would not be me who pulls the trigger, but I’d still help people kill other people. In peace time, it’s probably easy to just ignore it, but what when the products actually get used? The next NATO air strike in some distant country could then be executed with my indirect help.

Could I work in such a job? How would it feel to read the headlines about the dead and wounded and the destroyed towns?
