Morality is natural as other things like ugre to find meaning of life. We are endowed with it. But as it is with other intuitive abilities, it can be drowned out especially when we are focused on our target which realisation is remote from going by moral rules. I’m alluding now to the character of Powell. She had some kind of sensiblitiy for this little girl, but her target forced her to leave this girl for dead. Inside Powell was no moral dilemma. She only wanted to completed her mission no matter what.
I assume that all soliders didn’t come up with the same solving, because their judgements were not fast and intuitive. Hauser list these qualities as two of few that constitute a universal moral grammar. Time in the movie was passing really slowly, there were too much place for thinking, discussing. Their bureaucracy killed their endowed morality.
