I assume you want me to give obvious answers like "shortening the war" or "being brave", and I'm wondering where the rhetoric is leading.
Actually, I'm trying to get you to answer at least one question. Let's stick with the one that I asked rather than the one that you wanted me to ask.
You've said that you would probably have been commended for killing Hitler. Presumably, then, your act would have been commended for some reason, and you know why it would be commendable. A professional assassin, for instance, might find your precision or your stealth to be praiseworthy, but then he would be commending your act qua
act, without any regard to either motive or consequences. I imagine that's not what you mean when you say that your act would have been commendable, but then I can't be sure: that's why I'm asking.
Interestingly, one of the reasons given for the abhorting of an actual assassination attempt by the British Secret Service in 1944 was that it would not have been politically expedient to allow Germany to surrender at that time. Put that one in your "morality pipe" and smoke it !
No, that's not interesting at all. We're not talking about Britain's actual actions, we're talking about your hypothetical ones. Stick to the subject.
