This is a Journal Entry I do not need a cover page This has to be 2 complete pages For Immanuel Kant, the fundamental question isn’t “What is the right thing to do?” or “Who is the right person to be?” or “What will create the most happiness?” For Kant, the fundamental question is “Can this action be made a consistent universal law?” A part of his moral philosophy that is often understated is that he spoke for broad moral laws, not a bunch of exceptions; for example, he would say that lying cannot be made a consistent universal law, and exceptions like not hurting people’s feelings or to keep a party a surprise would not be acceptable. Kant also said that part of living in a moral society is helping others live morally without forcing or coercing them. This is a consistent universal law and a human duty. So is upholding human dignity. So is not causing unnecessary pain (which he extended to not causing unnecessary pain to animals). And plenty more. Kant also stated that we should use people only as ends unto themselves (upholding their dignity), not as means to our own ends. ———————————- Without doing any research on Kant’s social views or what philosophers have said, pick one of the following issues and explain whether or not it could consistently be made a universal law. I’ll be looking for your analysis (reason), not at whether you agree with me–there is room for (polite) disagreement. Remember–broad rules, few exceptions. capital punishment assisted suicide of the terminally ill automatic voter registration (when getting a driver’s license/graduating h.s./etc.) universal public schooling mandatory public service (1 year military/civil service after h.s. or 18th birthday) mandatory post-mortem organ donation mental acuity testing for driver’s license issuing and renewing (hey, we test the eyes, so . . . )
