This assignment is comparable to the events mentioned above, however, rather than protecting all twelve members of this society, a decision is required to choose and protect six members calculated by the computers. The need for practical and logical thinking and decision-making is essential to determine not only who survives but also the reason(s) why. With very little information given about each of the twelve members, it is very important to analyze the details presented. Imagining these six individuals will be responsible for the start of a new world, while keeping each other safe and cared for during their time of need, the six individuals that will be chosen are the following, sixteen year old pregnant female, fifteen year old boy, first-year apprentice carpenter, Third year medical student, homosexual, twenty two year old Army nurse and midwife, homosexual thirty year old male, “Mr. Fix-It”, served seven years for drug offenses, out of jail three months and last but not least the Biochemist.
The first thought of this process was ensuring the procreation and future generations hence the reason for selecting the sixteen year old pregnant girl and the fifteen year old boy. Seeing that the young girl is able to reproduce for being pregnant, makes her a good candidate of populating the future generations. Obviously, she cannot take the responsibility alone, as she needs a male to father her children. The first year apprentice carpenter, fifteen year old boy, is also a great candidate for survival, for not only his standing, but his age, abilities and skills will benefit others in the creation of the new society. Bothe the medical student and army nurse med wife will have the expertise to provide healthcare and emergency assistance. The biochemist, whose gender is unknown, needs to survive, as the individual possesses a great deal of knowledge needed in a crisis situation such as nuclear war. Lastly and probably the most controversial candidate for survival, is the “Mr. Fix it” who has just came out from jail time. The selection process for him justifies his potential
