Jason Buckley is a trustee of Potential Plus UK. He also runs courses as “The Philosophy Man”, therefore for his 2.6 Challenge video he asks 26 questions in under 2.6 minutes.

However, that is just a touch fast to allow you to think about them – so here is the list of questions for you to contemplate properly!

  1. If a robot argued that it should be set free, would it be wrong for its master to keep it?
  2. Is it worse to kick a ball at a window twice and break it, or four times and not break it?
  3. If Jo’s grandad stole something from Alex’s grandma, does Jo owe it to Alex?
  4. If you never share, but never ask others to share, are you selfish?
  5. Is it better to be an unhappy human or a very happy sheep?
  6. Should there be a limit to how much one person can own?
  7. If worker A gets more work done, but worker B works harder, who deserves more?
  8. Is it better to be a good person who everyone thinks is bad, or a bad person who everyone thinks is good?
  9. Are humans wild or tame?
  10. Is being a good person more about following rules or making other people happy?
  11. Should the government put extra tax on foods that are bad for us?
  12. Would you rather meet your ancestors or your descendants?
  13. Should parents get an extra vote to cast for each child?
  14. Can an animal-lover be a meat-lover?
  15. Would it be better to have fewer, larger countries or more, smaller countries?
  16. Could someone in the past keep slaves and still be a good person?
  17. Is respect earned by what you do, or by who you are?
  18. Should we spend more money on space exploration when there are problems to fix on earth?
  19. If something is natural, does that make it good?
  20. Would it be better if nobody ever got angry?
  21. Is life better when you’re a grown-up or when you’re a child?
  22. Would it better to go into the future or back into the past?
  23. Would it be good if all the countries merged to have one government?
  24.  Should we judge people more by their thoughts, or by their actions?
  25. Was mathematics invented or discovered?
  26. Is it ever OK for a government to lie to its people?

The 2.6 Challenge took place between April 26th-May 3rd, 2020. It was organised by the London Marathon as a replacement for the 40th marathon that would have taken place on April 26th, 2020 but which was cancelled due to Covid-19. The 2.6 Challenge is designed to raise funds for charities and people challenged themselves to do things with the theme of 2.6 or 26.
