A fifth post in a long line of five

To whome do I owe allegiance?

As a 28 year old man who is single, I ask all ye wanderers a question. Allow me to pose the Kantian liar's dilemma. All I ask for is your honest answers. Qualifications are allowed, but the answers are what I find important. I shall, at some stage give you Kant's solution (not necessarily 'right' but his all the same).

The 'why' in why did Vader post this will become apparent as the days go on. Suffice to say I have found myself in a quandry and require input.

A killer wants to kill a person. the person runs past you, into a house. Then the killer arrives. You are asked by the killer (again, the 'why' here is not important i.e. why did he want to kill the runner?) if you have seen the individual in question. Do you lie or tell the truth?

Yes, that could well disarm him.
