Over the years, poets, philosophers, economists, and politicians have all considered this issue. We find it challenging to consider this topic because our moral conscience instructs us that a human life is irreplaceable.
Immanuel Kant held a similar perspective and contended that people have a dignity but not a value.
In the kingdom of ends, everything has either a price or a dignity. What has a price can be replaced by something else as its equivalent; what on the other hand is raised above all price and therefore admits of no equivalent has a dignity.
There is a common, albeit unique, argument that all human lives are equivalent. Regrettably, neither of the aforesaid claims can be supported given the facts of the modern world. Human life has a worth, and this value changes depending on who you are and the situation. Due to its implications for a variety of topics and policy debates, including health care, workplace safety, and environmental policy, among many others, this is a hotly debated topic.
On weekdays at nine in the morning and not on weekends, my alarm is set. I know my alarm will wake me up the following morning when I go to sleep.
The least thoughtful thing I could possibly do to myself is this. I have a lifelong tendency to take my ability to wake up the next day for granted, no matter what happens. Well, most people act in the same way. They have plans for tomorrow, the weekend, and the future, but very few people actually carry out their plans in the here and now, and this is how we value life. And occasionally, while carrying out those goals, we get so busy that we forget to live our own lives.
There are numerous interpretations of this question. I think it’s more important to think about how valuable a human life is…
The majority place a high value on their own lives. In reality, it is simple and inexpensive to take a life or murder someone. Life can be destroyed by virtually anyone. God alone possesses the power to create life.
Unless we desire God’s approval, we need not believe in a greater intelligence or power that created everything. We cannot be coerced into loving God and adhering to his standards.
We are free to make our own decisions thanks to God. “Love each other as we love ourselves” is the commandment. Good deeds toward other people are required if we want God’s blessing. Because our own life is dependent on our treating all lives as precious, this ought to raise the value that we place on each and every life.
Would you allow another person to drown if you stood on the shore with a lifeline in your hand? Would you decline to assist a person in need and instead allow them to suffer and die for your own comfort and safety? After being so cruel to his creation, do you intend to attempt to persuade the God of all time, the God of the living and the dead that you are deserving of his love?
We will all pass away one day. We have the ability to choose life right now. We ought to show our adoration in all that we think, say, and do.
