Consider the following thought experiment: If I were to take someone with extreme character flaws, i.e. a heroin junkie, and put them in a room with only two exits, one labeled freedom and one labeled heroin, if they chose the heroin door and went to their death, is that my fault?
I've been thinking about the Saw series, and specifically the moral implications of the main character, Jigsaw. Can a person really be blamed for the mistakes made by others? If a person is flawed and their flaws lead them to harm or death, just because I put them there, am I responsible?
I guess to put it bluntly, does my construction of a situation or environment in which one's poor decision-making causes them to be harmed, am I the bad guy?
