Perhaps Hitler or Stalin, or other geo-political figures are not the best examples, here. How about lone madmen? How about the unibomber, or John Wayne Gacy, or Ted Bundy? If you could travel back in time to visit Bundy's mother, Why is the blood of their victims not on your hands simple because you're not the one holding the knife? Isn't allowing someone to die an immoral act, even if saving their lives means commiting a lesser atrocity yourself?

If you wouldn't do it yourself, that's understandable. However, would you look down on a timetraveller who killed Mrs. Bundy as evil? Or simply someone who took it upon himself to tarnish his own soul in exchange for sparing the lives of others? There is nobility there, deep within the moral relativism.
