If you find a ring that can grant you invisibility when you wear it, what will you do?


This ring is mentioned by Plato in his book Republic as the Ring of Gyges. Will you use the ring for yourself, leave the ring, or destroy the ring? If you use it yourself, how confident are you that you will use it for good cause?

    As bad as it may be, I think I would do the same.

    Yeah, the ring can be used for greater good in our society. Hopefully it does not fall to the wrong hand.

    I like you answer, bold and honest. I would probably do some of the same things, you are not alone.

    It won't control your mind, but it will be a struggle against ourselves not to use it for a bad cause. It is definitely tempting for most people.

    All it takes is imagination and guidance from the Lord. Sure, it can be used for all manner of bad, but so can any tool. The tool isn't bad; it's the user that brings bad or good to it.
