Kant And Moral Politics

Decent Essays
The relationship between free choice and moral politicians in the eye’s of Kant is such that, in order to have long lasting peace in the world it is required that people with authority to make choices for their states that do not just benefit them as an individual in the short run, but the state as a whole in the long run. Thus the coining of the phrase, moral politicians. This idea of moral politicians is tied closely to that of Kant’s theory of perpetual peace. In this theory there are three parts that must hold: all states have a republican constitution, a federation of states, and cosmopolitan law. First looking at the republican constitution this is the idea that republics are less likely to go to war do to, “audience cost.”
