Joker appears in Gotham. He says “batman: if you don’t reveal your identity, I will kill people”. Batman doesn’t reveal his identity, joker kills people. Who is responsible?
This is a pretty straight forward moral question, but I think this the best example of it. Essentially, though, it boils down to “do X or I will do Y”. When X isn’t done, who is responsible when Y happens?
As far as I’m concerned, it’s obviously the joker. Like if someone doesn’t pay a ransom, it’s still the kidnapper’s fault the kidnapee (?) dies. To blame the person who didn’t give in to demands is stupid.
What are your thoughts?
Posting in imho because it’s more about the moral question than the film itself.
