Ok, I reloaded, but it is close to my bedtime. So ask something sensible before I go to bed.

Because all people die, one cannot save all life. In fact the law of diminishing returns will rule how many can be saved. That is why I depend on triage to save the most life possible.

The law of charity says that there are more people than can be saved. If you had an infinite number of doctors you could not save all life. You would still have to choose.

Wrong! That is assuming that I have to choose.

If I create enough doctors, I can save all!

The law of Charity states that there are more people dying than can be saved. So evey choice to save one person is a choice to let another die.
