So I have a interesting moral thought. Would it be better for you to die alone or die with friends.
Life A:Lets say you died at a point in your life where most people from 1st world countries want to be at at the age of 65. You just retired from a nice job, a good and loving spouse, friends who care about you and a big enjoyable family with maybe a few kids of your own. Lets say you get hit by a car on the way to some place and you die. You leave all of your friends, your family, your kids and your spouse. They are now left in a grieving state, when anyone visits your old house it will feel empty like something is missing. Your friends will miss that reliable person who help them through the rough times. You children will miss your random tidbits of advice even if they did not fallow it. Your spouse might be a strong person but they will feel the lack of your existence more. He/she will toss and turn at night from missing the comfort of just you breathing while you sleep next to them. They feel a loss for you in their life, one that can never be replaced. You did this because you loved them. You befriended, comforted, stayed with them because you cared for them when you living. Now they feel pain because they miss you and you can't come back to them.
Life B:Lets say you die at the same age as life B everything the same but you have no friends, family, kids, or spouse. You die with with no one caring for you or you caring for anyone else. No one to become depressed about your death or any negative effects from your death. In fact your death made the world a better place. Your death frees up more money for other people to use.
I do not recall where I was going with this... so I am just going to post it... here ya go.
