You wouldn't be here if not for an ancestor that killed or even ate babies.

His ancestor was Albert Fish?



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

I guess not. The alternative history that would unfold could turn out to be far worse.

Baby Justin Bieber on the other hand i wouldn't hesitate one second...



Hunting Season is done...

I couldn't kill a baby. OTOH, something less drastic to teach him good manners when it wasn't too late yet...




"Mary, the baby's crying"
"Good God, as if someone punched him in the face!"



Stwike him, Centuwion. Stwike him vewy wuffly! (Pontius Pilate, "Life of Brian")

A fart without stink is like a sky without stars.

TGS, Third Grade Shooter: brand new genre invented by Kevin Butler exclusively for Natal WiiToo Kinect. PEW! PEW-PEW-PEW!

        

The main implication of the question is philosophical due to the ramifications it could have on the timeline. Leave it up to a gaming forum to give a completely nonintellectual and/or virtue signaling answer to the question as: "I just couldn't kill any baby!" =D

Butterfly Effect... Gonna be a no from me

I cannot in my own conscience have the desire to change what is supposed to be destiny ...

If villains like Hitler are destined to commit acts of atrocity then so be it and likewise if heroes like Abraham Lincoln are destined to fall then they must meet their end. There shall be no assisting or hindering of other people's past from me because I believe there exists a reason for everything that happens with this intricate reality. Had WWII not happened, my life may have ended up taking a turn for the worst ...

For all the bad things that has happened with Hitler starting WWII, there were also positive results that came from it too such as an independent Jewish state, decolonization and many more technological advances ...



Its not about being able to kill a baby or not, ppl miss the point everytime this question is asked, if you kill such an influencial and important figure (for all the wrong reasons I know) in world history you change everything that happened to society and to mankind basicaly, and there's 0 ways of knowing the change would be for the better. World War 2 is a defining momment on our evolution as a society, not having it could end up screwing us badly. Btw theres also the possibility that someone worse than Hittler comes along if hes not around.



I would have just accepted him in the Academy of Fine Arts. Maybe if he could achieve his dream of being an artist he would not become a mass murderer.

This is a really poor argument to anyone who doesn't embrace the idea of destiny which is, at best, silly. But it gets worse for you because you say that even if you had the power to prevent the slaughter of millions of your fellow human beings, you would not act; which is cowardly. Perhaps even immorally so to those who believe in such things.

Would I kill baby Hilter? Absolutely, without hesitation. 

Nobody else seems to even confront the actual question. The question isn't "Would you kill a baby that may or may not cause harm to others?" which several guilt-assuaging denizens have perverted it to be. It's "Would you kill baby Hitler?" and I think it's perfectly obvious what that question entails.

It really isn't a poor argument because the power to change the past means the power to unilaterally change the present and the future as well. It's naive to believe that the power to change the past is a one way street since every action comes with a reaction ... 

It is not out of cowardice that I refuse to exercise such a potential power for preventing the slaughter of millions of human being since it means far more reaching ramifications than you think. Without Hitler starting WWII, racism and colonialism would run far more rampant today than it would today. It is maybe you who is the immoral one ... 

Even if you interpreted the question in another way, how would one justify killing an infant that has yet to commit a crime ? More importantly did Hitler commit any other crimes along the way before he came into power as chancellor ? You don't know what the question entails and you haven't given it much thought it either ...
