somthing798 Posted January 29, 2011 Share Posted January 29, 2011 A TV series called "Dexter" features a man who kills people who escape the legal system. He only kills people who he is sure are murderers, but he does break into people's houses who he suspects to be murderer's. He feels no emotions. Are his actions ethical? I suggest watching one episode or reading a Wikipedia page.The show also reminds me of something I heard about Ayn Rand. She once tried to right a story based on a serial killer. He would feel no obligation towards society, no emotion. For whatever reason she stopped writing. I can't remember the details. I would like some input. Do you think the idea was based of Ayn Rand's attempted novel. Do you think it is ethical? I say yes to the ethical part, but I can't be certain of it being based on her attempted novel.
