It is important here to understand Kant’s notion of space and time. This is because to Kant, space and time do not come from experience, but are the form of our apprehension of the world. He believes that space and time are both basic and necessary to form experiences. Our experiences take the form of space and time, but are not the content of our experiences. Everything that appears to us must have spatial properties.
Freedom is the right to do what you want, is right to live where you want, is right to choose the religion that you want and freedom is right to eat, learn, drink what you want. There is one thing that limits our freedom: someone else’s freedom. According to a Boğaziçi University student Arda Seyhan, “We can live free by respecting other people’s freedom. We are living in a community which we all need people around us, we can not just ignore other’s freedom and do what we want to do for our freedom.” We should consider other people's rights. The main idea of freedom is to be respectful and helpful to the community.
Kant argues that memory gives reason to individuals, which allows them to make certain decisions. Kant feels that goodwill and good intention is equal. Kant believes that if a person applies an action with good intentions or goodwill then it doesn’t matter of the outcome. Kant feels that people cannot have total control of the outcome. The outcome could be either good or bad.
So it is also very important that nothing should threaten the freedom of any one in the world and there should be equal rights and equal opportunities for everyone in the world which is a way towards freedom and equality. Because this special gift is given to a man and or society from his creator (God) and not from an
Even the most diehard advocates of free speech accept that it must have some practical restrictions in the interests of public safety and in order to protect other kinds of rights. People claim to want freedom, but they also seem to need limitations on that freedom. Some laws are not designed to limit freedom of expression, but nevertheless can have that effect. In general, people do not agree with the government controlling what they can and cannot do to themselves, it should be no one’s decision but your own if you want to be homeless, drug addicted, prostitute. As long as, the only damage you inflict is on yourself.
Applied correctly, Kant’s moral principles, specifically the categorical imperative, would greatly alter one’s view of life and due to this it may help to not only make the world a better place, but to also bolster individual lives. Immanuel Kant was born to a simple family of devout pietists in Königsberg Germany in 1724. He was the fourth child out of a total of nine. He enrolled in a university at the age of sixteen for six years and later
However rule of the family is, that is how the person’s freedom will be. This quote shows how freedom is a gift from God. He has given us freedom, so that we become the person we have meant to be and not by sticking to some tradition or family rules or whatsoever that keeps us from being ourselves. “Religious freedom is often thought to protect, not only religious practices, but also the underlying religious beliefs of citizens” (Brettschneider). For example, a very close friend of my cousin, Ramyar, changed his religion from Islam to Christian without his family even knowing about it.
For Kant world history is determined by a ‘cosmopolitan aim’ understood as the gradual realization of the perfect civil union of human kind. He believes human history final end as the establishment of a cosmopolitan order and we must hope for and work towards Cosmopolitanism if we want he humanity to attain perfection. Kant considers the question that whether human race is constantly progressing and he answers himself in affirmative. He states “Human race has always been in progress towards the better and will continue to be so henceforth” in his work The Strife for Faculties. Kant gives teleological arguments to justify events of history by demonstrating their necessary relation to some ultimate goal of nature.
Many were persecuted for even saying something that does not correspond to their beliefs. As well as, they were also killed because the ruler of that country didn’t like that type of religion or want total control of their citizens.” Freedom of religion is severely restricted in Muslim countries”(New world Encyclopedia, 2017). Freedom of Religion is decreases, which means that there are countries that oppose Freedom of Religion. “ China and Vietnam, although they don’t govern the economy they still oppose religion”( Reese, 2015). “ Freedom of Religion is a human right that needs greater respect around the world” ( Reese, 2015).
How can we live free? From my point of view, we can live free by respecting otherُs rights to live free too.We can not ignore the rights of people with whome we live in the society.We can not simply do what we want and ignore others.We must take other people rights into consideration.
