Dilema moral.  Sacrificio por hacer lo correcto.
Sacrificarias tu vida o afectarias tu salud a sabiendas si eso implica que evito una catastrofe?
Punto negativo: los kamikaze
Punto positivo: la resistencia, los del underground train

Si sale de mi, que bien, es loable.
Else, mi vida por la gran empresa.
Puedo correro y dejar la compa/nia en el cuerno.  Pero es moralmente correcto?  Podre vivir con no haber hecho nada?
The workers are being asked to make escalating — and perhaps existential — sacrifices that so far are being only implicitly acknowledged: Japan’s Health Ministry said Tuesday it was raising the legal limit on the amount of radiation to which each worker could be exposed, to 250 millisieverts from 100 millisieverts, five times the maximum exposure permitted for American nuclear plant workers.
The change means that workers can now remain on site longer, the ministry said. “It would be unthinkable to raise it further than that, considering the health of the workers,” the health minister, Yoko Komiyama, said at a news conference. There was also a suggestion on Wednesday that more workers may be brought to help save the power station.
