"Russian missiles are headed toward ten American cities and there is not enough time to stop them. About ten million people will die including the president. The president must first decide whether to launch a retaliatory attack that would kill at least 150 million Soviet citizens. If you were president, would you order the strike?"
Initially there were 10 students for yes, and 4 students who reluctantly raised their hands for no, and 2 students undecided. Over the course of the six weeks discussing the situation, the students each made their decision of what they would do; with ten "nukers" and four "non-nukers." They used their logic and values to finalize their decisions.
