Is there such a thing as morality when someone is in “survival” mode?

Is there such a thing as morality when someone is in “survival” mode?

 

Is a human truly capable of choosing and acting upon “right & wrong” when enduring extreme stress and/or great suffering?

Morality still exists when you're in "survival" mode, but it isn't nearly as important as it was when all is good. One still knows right and wrong. What changes is the perception of the consequences of your actions. For example: Stealing is wrong, but I'm too hungry to care.

That would probably depend on the individual and his/her priorities. Humans are similar but also unique.

Interesting subject, yes, I hope we don't see things get as bad as they can get. But when famine, the plaque hits or society breaks down, that is when we find out who is who and what they are made of.

All You Guys Are Incorrect. When In Survival Mode, You Do Anything To Stay Alive Don't You? Even If It Means Doing Things Out Of The Ordinary.

No, instinct eclipses morality when survival mode kicks in. If need be you'd eat you best friend to survive. If your planning going on a round the world yachting adventure be careful who you choose as a ship mate, you may have to eat them.
