Zen Life and Death

You are to be given a strange, unique, ability. You can choose one or the other. You cannot tell anyone, or even hint at, or profit from the capacity, or it is instantly revoked. Both faculties are dependent on touch. One is the gift of life, the other death. If you choose life then when you touch someone, in a few weeks they will become stronger, healthier and live years longer than they would have lived. If you choose death, when you touch someone in a few weeks they will die. Which do you choose? Why? Which choice will better the world? Why? Do you help your friends and some good or brilliant people live a longer more productive life, or do you clean up all the garbage and rid the world of dictators, corruption, the nefarious, and those who contribute nothing? Which is the more positive outcome?
