Nik is widely considered an expert & professional on the the tight rope, known for not using safety nets. He wins his suit to perform over Niagara Falls, but it is required that he wear a safety harness for the first time. Should Nik be forced?

He negotiated, and that was a condition for getting what he wanted. For him to do otherwise would make him untrustworthy.

If he wants to die, let him die

No, he's Nik Wallenda of the Flying Wallendas. That's what they do. If he says he doesn't need a net, I'll believe him.

No, technically he shouldn't be forced. He should simply be allowed to find somewhere else to do his thing if he can't or won't take the minimal and reasonable precautions that they require.

No he should be forced to have insurance to pay for public services that will have to clean up his body if he falls off.

This is what I was going to say too.

I'd say no. They should perform under the same conditions they are used to. A harness (or the tow rope specifically) may throw them off.

No, I don't wanna! Can't make me!

Wait, whoa.... That's not me!

I was wondering...

Thanks for clearing that up.

Thank you wikipedia editors... It says at the beginning he's Jewish, then at the end says, "...Wallenda is married with three children, and considers his Christian faith to be a central aspect of his life."

Nothing special, just nitpicking.

Do you know any of that to be incorrect?

That Judaism and Christianity are not the same thing? Yes.

But as an ethnic background would it not work? I have, after all, met a few self-identified Jewish Atheists.

Of course they aren't.

Are you trying to say that since he's Jewish, he must practice Judaism?

I am a Jewish Christian. Ethically, culturally, and gastronomically Jewish... But theologically a Christian.

It doesn't say he's of Jewish heritage. It says "religion: Jewish".
