The world and humans for students and their parents


From the book by Andrey Sokolov and Tatiana Sokolova "The world and humans for students and their parents".


Immanuel Kant said: "The freedom to wave your arms ends before the tip of another person's nose." This can be considered Kant's third law. What is he talking about?

The fact that each person is valuable in himself and belongs to himself and no one else. No one has the right to limit his actions, thoughts, words or aspirations if they do not harm other people.

Therefore, a hooligan, robber or thief encroaches first of all not on the life, health or property of another person, but on his freedom.

Therefore, the hired worker sells to the employer, first of all, not his knowledge, skills and time, but his freedom.

Therefore, the student pays for knowledge in the lesson, first of all, not with his time or efforts, but with his freedom. For example, the freedom to play football instead of a lesson.

And the school, demanding from students a certain appearance, wearing a school uniform or attending some events that are not related to teaching, for the subjects in which the student will take an exam, encroaches on the freedom of these students.

Therefore, states encroach on the freedom people by setting boundaries. The right and freedom of movement of people are encroached upon.

Deception and manipulation encroach on a person's freedom of choice.

Freedom is expensive. A slave deprived of his liberty only risks the disfavor of the master. A free person, having much more opportunities than a slave, also bears great risks. And he pays a very high price for his freedom. Because freedom is, first of all, responsibility.

If a person is free, then he can no longer blame someone for his mistake, laziness or mistake. A free person is responsible for his own life. Completely.

And the freedom of one person ends where the freedom of another person begins.

Knowing all this, let's think about why it is impossible to cross the road, in the wrong place, although we really want to, although we are free to do it?

Because at the same time we will encroach on someone else's freedom - on the freedom of the driver of the car, who will have to brake sharply, fly into a ditch so as not to collide with you or go to prison because of you if he hits you.

Let's look at another example. Why shouldn't you make noise in class if you are free? Because your behavior can prevent other children from gaining knowledge. With your noise, you will encroach on their freedom.

Actually, this is precisely why you should not make noise at night, and you should not make noise unnecessarily during the day, so as not to encroach on the freedom of other people to rest in silence.
