One Russian shoots another Russian while arguing about Kant

There aren't really any challenging vocabulary words in this article, I just wanted to pass this on.  I guess it's good that some people still take the philosophy of Kant so serious.

Basically he had two big ideas.  One was that there is a big difference between the world as it is and the world as we perceive it.  His other big idea was that we needed to act according to 'universal' moral principles (principles that were true beyond any doubt and that everyone would have to agree on). Only by doing this could we free ourselves from the way nature often willed us to act (against reason).

Kant, of course, would have argued that it was wrong to shoot another person who disagreed with his philosophy.  :P  So the guy who shot the other guy DEFINITELY lost the argument. :P :P :P
