On a side note (unrelated to this thread - but I don't want to start another), do you consider it moral to threaten someone at gunpoint to hand over their hard-earned cash in order to alleviate another individual's suffering.
No, because if that were to happen on a large scale the terror and fear created by the constant threat of suffering would most likely outweigh any suffering alleviated with the stolen money.
