After reading DeathNote*, I've been racking my brain over what I would do given the power over people's lives. I know power like that can corrupt but would I be inclined to do evil with it, be a self-righteous murder (I.e. kill only criminals) or would I simply not accept the book at all.
What would you do with it?
*for those who have not read DeathNote and want to join in, it's simply a God of Death's book--if you know the face and name of a person you can write it in the book and that person will die...you can even write how they will die and control their action up to 23 days (or was it 24).
