Would you go back in time to kill baby Hitler? | The Tylt
Would you go back in time to kill baby Hitler?
We are not the first to ask this question. The video below explains the history of asking about killing baby Hitler and a bit about the idea of time travel in general. The concept is not as old as you might think.
At the heart of this issue is a moral dilemma. Can you, with your own two hands, kill an innocent child to save millions?
But wait, you might argue, this child isn't innocent—it's Hitler!
True, but the sands of time might be immune to your killing of baby Hitler. As this article says, "I admit that all of what follows is non-falsifiable, but I strongly doubt that Hitler’s nonexistence would have prevented World War II or the Holocaust."
