I'm not really one of those "let 1000 guilty parties go to save 1 innocent life
" kind of guys, I'm more the kind of guy that bulldozes my
way to the guilty party regardless of who gets in my way.
"Who to blame
" is the easy part. I'd blame everybody, starting with you. If I got 50/50 correct rate between guilty and innocent folks in
retribution for harm befalling my family, then I would consider that a success. If I become more evil than the original offending party, I can live
with that. If I burn in hell, or if I lose myself and my soul because of my actions, I can live with that, as long as I am successful in my quest
"Will I live long enough
" to exact my revenge? You'd better believe it. I've been in 30 car accidents and never had so much as a broken
bone. I've been in 100s of fights and never gotten more than a few stitches. I've been blown up, and burned "full-thickness" to the muscle and
bone in some areas, told I might die, and would never walk right again, and I was back at the gym in 3 weeks, and back at work in 6. I've never had
a cavity. My appendix ruptured, and I was sent home from the ER for 3 straight days because my white blood cell count was barely elevated.
Eventually they did the surgery and cleaned me out a bit, and I didn't miss a day of work. You really think some flu is going to keep me from
exacting my revenge on somebody or everybody?
Not trying to brag, or sound like a tough guy, or some kind of psychopath, but I am saying that if someone had the opportunity to save everyone, and
they made the conscious decision to ignore their responsibility, and then my family was affected, yet I survived, then I would be a grieving
father/husband with nothing to lose and a memory of this thread to start assigning blame. That is a bad combination.
I realize the thread is just an exercise in human nature, so these things I say are not meant as threats, they are only meant along the same lines as
the thread. This is an example of one person's human nature, and one additional outcome to the hypothetical scenario. If the person acts, it might
end badly for them, but if they don't act, it might end even more badly for them!
