Do you think that all normal people sometimes desire the death of those they love?

American, 21. I see no reason why someone would desire the death of a loved one. Of course I'm not in a philisophical mood, but hey. I usually want those I love to stick around.

Argentinian, 17. I think the only reason why someone would ever desire the death of a loved one is if that person had a terrible disease which causes them insufferable pain. What I mean is, I know I don't want my mom to die, but I wouldn't want her to live in pain everyday of her life either.

American 16. No! Why would anyone want loved ones to die unless they were in a vegetative state or something?

American, 20. I've been so mad that I said I could kill someone I love, but I, of course, never meant it or would ever entertain the idea. I would never, in my life, want someone I love to actually die, even if they were old and it was their time. I would have to vote no on this being a normality.

American 22, Slightly disagree. If I saw someone I loved suffering for years and I'd want them to be relieved of their pain. Of course I'd be sad, but I think that I'd put someone else's pain above my own. However, I believe most people are more selfish about their own emotional pain.

British, 17. Disagree. Although, you do get some crazy people out there who would kill. You know, if they know they'll never be with that person...

32 african-american, slightly disagree. Normality is relative, and this can be a question of faith and wishing death is very specific to circumstances, varying from abused children, resentful teens, jilted pursuers/ lovers, greedy heirs, caregiving children. In some circumstances it seems reasonable, if it fits their beliefs, but what is normal belief?

Pretty heady assignment, please share the background and results if you are free to when done. Good luck with it.
