If you could use a voodoo doll to hurt whoever you wished, would you use it on anyone? If so, who?
No. Power corrupts and I certainly wouldn’t want that kind of power at my disposal. Because it could start out as me using the doll against someone who truly deserves the pain or torture. But from there it could become a slippery slope and suddenly I’m using that power against any random person who randomly pisses me off. Besides, who am I to judge who deserves to be anonymously treated in such a way? No, thanks.
But what would you do? Would the temptation to use the doll be too great for you to resist? Would you use it on someone in particular? Let me know your thoughts down in the comments!
