Treating People As Ends In Themselves Is Very Important
“ Act in such a way that you treat humanity, whether in your own person or in the person of any other, always at the same time as an end and never merely as a means to an end. ”
—Immanuel Kant, Groundwork of the Metaphysic of Morals
I have noticed that i experience pain when being treated as a means to an end by others. It feels as if I have been denied my humanity by them. As if i do not matter. I would not want to do this to anyone else. I think that the more it is done the more damage is done and the more people do it to others. This is therefore very important in terms of understanding what is wrong with The World.
