Selfless Acts & "Suicide-Missions": Create A Program For Human Volunteers?

This is easy, start with the guy who falsified records. The work through all the bankers, politicians, and brokers who made it happen. And you can then move onto the rest of the politicians, bankers and brokers thatyou can find in Japan.
Then you can use the military, and police. Once they're done, use prisoners for volunteers.
It's THAT easy.

You are asking people to volunteer for suicide duty to cover up the CRIMINAL acts of others, who get to hide behind lawyers and DUE PROCESS???
No man, you are WAY off base here, you sound just like the system you know that?

i totally agree with what you are saying i personally would be willing to give my life if it means many more people continue to live because of my sacrifice. You are completely right about the space exploration as well there must be at least thousands of people who would be willing to be sent to mars or even just sent out to explore deep space and send back what they experience. very good post.

- What are some of the issues which you feel would need to be ironed-out in order for this to work?
- Would you vote to enact such a program?
- Do you feel it is unethical?
- Do you feel it is unnecessary?
- What are some of the science, medical, and research tasks that could be aided by such volunteers?

b.) Each must sacrifice at least 14 days a year to be refreshed on medical and safety techniques. There should NOT be a standing army, for the costs are great and a strain to the common masses whom volunteers are striving to save and uphold an ideal for generations of humanity. It is too be strictly volunteerism.
c.) As it is strictly on volunteer basis, there must be no expectation of rewards or recognition in any form, for it only inflates the ego and will tear the ideals of the organisation apart when such expectations are not met. Medical benefits will be offered, but when the volunteer faces less than 50% chance of life in line of duty, then euthanesia be induced.
4. Absolutely necessary, for in order to progress for the evolution of our race, mistakes will happen and must happen. Someone will have to take the fall, and when no one else will, you and I will have to, for the sake of humanity at large or we ourselves will be doomed as well.
Just never let our deaths be in vain, and never allow such mistakes to happen ever again. We all will have to die anyway, sooner or later. At least if our death can save millions or thousands of other precious human lives, then so be it.
