Project #54349 - Assignment 1

Imagine that you see dangerously overweight child eating a triple deckerice cream cone.Only a few feet away are three very poor, underfed children. You decide to take the ice cream from the overweight child and give it to three starving waifs. This seems like win win. The overweight child is unhappy but it's better for her health, for her not to eat ice cream. The three poor children get a welcome treat and they would rarely get and because of its rarity it will have negative health effects for them. If as it seems everyone wins then utility would seem to say this is the morally right thing to do. However, this choice doesn't seem right. There are lots of reasons why, but none of those reasons seem to be utility.

Can a utilitarian answer this and show that utility does gives us answer which we know to be correct, and that those 'other reasons' which seemed to be something other that utility, really amount of utility?
