Is it ethical to do so much thinking and no acting?

Without having read the thread, I would guess someone has commented on whether or not this sotuation actually represents an actual 'ethical' choice given the limited choices that are not consistent with freedom of action and human nature.

 

That said, would not acting to save a life be the 'better' choice?

 

And if someone close to you means someone of value to you , why would you not act to save their life? It doesn't seem that difficult a question in this unrealistic scenario.
