On Human Utility
What is the utility of a human being? Which beings are useful to us…and who are not? How do the utility of a person affect how we treat them… Or respect them or not? Whyndo we define the utilitarian value of a human being to us?
Why are some people useful but still deserving of our abuse and mistreatment and dishonour? What cognitive system can we use to make such judgements?
Its not my fault I’m really good at what I do…
Just because I can do it quickly, it does not give you the right to give me more work to do. Especially when I do not enjoy doing your work in the first place.
Choosing to do it and being efficient at doing it are my choices. You don’t have to abuse my generosity.
But you will. I know.
