Kant and MLMs

Immanuel Kant. Credit: Wikipedia.

A quick note this time. Immanuel Kant noted that it is immoral to use people as mere means to an end. For example, murder is wrong since you use the person you kill merely as a means to whatever end you wish to achieve by their death (say, getting away from a crime scene, eliminating a witness, etc.)

Can you think of any business where "we are using you merely as a means to an end" is more true than in an MLM? Not only does nobody care about what happens to those in the "downline" (so long as they keep promoting the upline's goal of making money), but their training material actively encourages you to exploit friendships and personal relationships to get the person in your downline -- that is, to actively turn relationships based on caring to one based on exploitation.

But how common it is that people will use others as means to an end through political or commercial propaganda....The philosophers have rarely been in vogue politically especially when they call for honesty and inveigh against malaise and mediocrity.

Not every person who has not as much as immaculate credit is flippant.
In all actuality, there are individuals like my younger sibling who have made their monetary overnight boardinghouse now lamenting lying in it. check cashing san diego
