Sample text

What I meant is that it is often permissible to inflict harm on a threatener that is considerably greater than the harm that the threatener would otherwise have inflicted on his victim. It is thus in the determination of how much harm it can be justifiable to inflict on a person on grounds of liability that considerations of responsibility and culpability are relevant. A threatener’s responsibility or culpability is one determinant of the degree of harm to which he is liable. It has then exhausted its power to justify the infliction of harm on the threatener.

This would be disproportionate, so the victim must submit to being wrongly killed. Defensive action may also be disproportionate because of its effect on the threatener. If the only way one can prevent oneself from being wrongly and painfully pinched is to kill the pincher, one must submit to being pinched. The form of proportionality that weighs an act’s good effects against the harms it causes to victims who are not liable to those harms is wide proportionality. Everyone agrees that wide proportionality is relevant to the morality of war, so that an act of war can be impermissible because the harm it would inflict on civilian bystanders would be excessive in relation to the act’s good effects.

Kamm, Ethics for Enemies: Terror, Torture, and War (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2011), 133–34. 8 • t h e e t h i c s o f wa r By stipulating that the many people are trying to cause the paralysis, Kamm presumably intends to suggest that they are all culpable. ”4 So the implication still seems to be that if killing each responsible killer is proportionate, so that each is liable to be killed independently of what the others may do, there is no limit to the number it can be proportionate and permissible to kill in defense of the single victim.
