students. Through the analysis of the dilemmas of the case and drawing from philosopher Kant’s rationale, I will discuss why it is morally permissible to torture the prisoner. The problem with killing hundreds of students is in turn what it does to humanity. It steals hundreds of innocent souls from the world, and brings an unspeakable amount of grief to their families. Murder is immoral to begin with. But, when children are brought into the equation, it makes things even more difficult. The idea

My own personal ethical system is based upon treating others how I feel I should be treated, on personally striving towards my idea of an ideal person, and on such an ideal person being kind, courteous, honorable, and knowledgeable. My ethical system is derived from two primary ideas: treating people as I wish to be treated and striving towards an idealized vision of humanity.

A prevalent symbol of this struggle has been the Declaration of Independence written by Thomas Jefferson. One can say that the many
