What we obviously need are MORE TROLLEYS.
Why not less rails? More cost effective.

Use railway workers as rails. Even cheaper.

2 problems. One solution.

“There is a runaway trolley barreling down the railway tracks. Ahead, on the tracks, there are five people tied up and unable to move. The trolley is headed straight for them. You are standing some distance off in the train yard, next to a lever. If you pull this lever, the trolley will switch to a different set of tracks. However, you notice that there is one person on the side track. You have two (and only two) options…”

I choose a giant helicopter swoops down and picks up the trolly, saving everyone!

“What? Where did you get the helicopter?”

I was taught to “think outside the box”

The “box” is believing the person asking the Trolly problem has control over you, restricting your choices

To me, the real problem is letting people dictate what you are limited to do

This point is often reached very early on
