The solution to the trolley problem is to derail the trolley
Ask yourself if a system which allows tying people to trolley tracks becomes viable if enough trolleys get derailed

@storchp Luckily, all three possibilities (let the trolley pass, divert the trolley, derail the trolley) are all imaginary scenarios and I can sleep well either way 😇
But seriously, a lot of times, these dilemmas occur because the systems in place encourage their creation
@firstname.lastname@example.org alternatively, raise the taxes on tying-people-to-tracks activities and introduce harsh fines for trolleys that go too fast to brake. Introduce rope-eating bugs to the ecosystem near the tracks
