If there were no god, no hope for an afterlife, I would certainly change my methods. My needs, the needs of those I care about, would justify the destruction of any obstacle, any person or property, without hesitation or remorse. The goal becomes the moment and nothing more, to live limited moments in comfort and happiness.
Starvation would not be a trigger, mere hunger or discomfort would make a person in posession of food an obstacle to my happiness, like a blade of grass I must step on to grasp an apple.
I asked a similar question a few months ago, I believe it was one of my first threads. Most who replied said they would do the right thing and treat people with kindness, I hope they were lying because they would not last six months in such a world.
You are standing in a field holding your starving child, an old man holds a bottle of milk and refuses to give you some. You love the child and know it will die without food, you do not know the old man, there will be NO CONSEQUENCES AT ALL if you take the milk, who leaves the field?
