Threats and Bystanders 39 Guard, in contrast, is what I will call an Attached Shield, and counts as a direct threat. I cannot see any difference between this case, and a case in which Falling Person hurtles towards Victim in a heavy box or, as Otsuka imagines, wearing heavy ski boots. It would be an odd moral theory that treats Falling Person as a threat when it is her weight that will kill Victim, but not when it is the weight of her ski boots that will kill him. When the threatening object will kill Victim qua object—when is it the physical mass that threatens Victim’s life—being part of that threatening mass is morally relevant.

If the contribution of Guard’s mass doesn’t make a difference to the trolley’s capacity to kill Victim, how can it be relevant? g. 26 Lang points out that individual components of a lethal object will often not be lethal in themselves. It’s not as if a single cog of the trolley is independently lethal. But if we deny that any component of a given object X can be described as lethal whilst affirming that X consists of nothing more than its parts, we would seem to be committed to the idea that X is not lethal after all.
