The Societal Trolley is heading towards two grand problems, on two metaphorical tracks. The problem it runs over is magically erased from the current world. People know it existed, but none of them will miss it and nothing like it will ever come into existence again.

If you hold YES in an option, that is a vote to destroy the thing on the right track. If you hold NO in an option, that is a vote to destroy the thing on the left track. It doesn't matter how many shares you hold, everyone gets one vote. This includes bots.

The market will close each week and I will check each option to see if there is a clear majority vote, and resolve the options for which there is. The market then re-opens for another week.

You can submit any trolley problems you think would be fun for this. If people trade on your trolley problem, you'll get trader bonuses/fees! You should try to submit options that are tough to decide on, as this will probably get you more traders. I reserve the right to N/A answers for quality control.
