A few years ago Art Bell did a radio show on KNYE, with his late wife Ramona. (May she Rest in Peace) It was called *Tradeio* and the theme song was Elephant Walk. You could buy, sell or trade just about anything, but there was one catch! You had to answer a question first. On one show the question was from an old Twilight Zone series Season 1 Episode 20, Segment 2 called 'Button, Button.' You are given a black box with a red button on the top. If you press the red button someone will die in the world who you DO NOT know.
You will then receive a Million dollars. I believe in the Twilight Zone's story it was only $200,000, but Art went with a Million.

If you refuse to press the Red Button on the Black Box you will Not receive the Million Dollars and it would be offered to another person. Someone in the world you DO NOT know! Would you press the Red Button?

Yeah sure why not!

What are the chances it would be someone you know that would die?

Every second of every day somewhere in the world someone whom you do not know dies, through no fault of yours at all, whether you push a red button or not. Do you feel guilty about that?
It is a game of guilty conscience.
