Trade off 

If you had the choice, why would you choose?

To see the future and do nothing 


To see it, change it but at the cost of someone else’s misfortune.

A good life for you and a bad one for someone else, could you give away your misfortune and steal another’s happiness? 

Or would you be selfless and take what you’re dealt?

An irrelevant question really because it would never happen, at least the seeing the future part anyway, the second aspect is usually very real when you think about it.

People step on each other all the time to progress after all.
