I read/watched a thing about The Man in the High Castle

and I didn’t want to be thinking about euthanasia but I am anyway.

This is short but angry and about death so under a cut it goes.

So, which philosopher do I have to thank for the idea that allowing something bad to happen (when you know for sure that you could have prevented it) is more justifiable than actively causing something bad to happen?

Even if the two bad things are the same?

Even if the bad thing you’d be allowing is actually worse than the one you’d be causing?

If whoever-it-was thinks responsibility/guilt/causation is that important, they should be aware of how many slow, painful deaths they’ve caused by convincing people that ~letting someone die~ in a horrible, painful way is ok because at least you’re not actively killing them.
