Yes I do have the power over their lives. But I choose not to. The power then lies with the people that were forcing me... Don't get me wrong I love Boogie Monster. But a stranger's life is important as well.

By choosing not to have power over their lives, you abdicating your own, leaving yourself powerless in the process. Have you though about this and how this might affect who you are in the long run?

This is quite an outrageous scenario, granted, but how do you (in real life) react to the power you hold over other people, would you submit under pressure for little (but important) things or do you fight for what you rightly feel is due to you?  How you react when someone attempts to steal your job by falsely accusing you of fraud (after all the stranger's need in wanting your job is important too) is pretty much how you'll react in a scenario where you have a gun in your hand and the threat of a loved one being killed.
