TheВ ValueВ OfВ LifeВ

" AtВ firstВ IВ gaveВ theВ standardВ legalВ argumentВ­В thatВ IВ wasВ notВ evaluatingВ theВ intrinsicВ moralВ worthВ ofВ anyВ individual. В IВ wasВ basingВ myВ decisionВ onВ theВ law, В justВ asВ juriesВ didВ everyВ day''(Feinberg). В TheВ writerВ ofВ thisВ statementВ KennethВ FeinbergВ showsВ theВ wayВ theВ governmentВ processedВ andВ howВ theyВ distributedВ moneyВ betweenВ victimsВ ofВ SeptemberВ 11. В KennethВ statesВ thatВ theВ governmentВ didВ notВ goВ offВ onВ theВ moralВ worthВ ofВ anВ individual. В TheyВ simplyВ wentВ offВ ofВ whatВ wasВ inВ AmericanВ lawВ insteadВ ofВ valuingВ theВ victimsВ onВ theВ wayВ theyВ lived. В TheВ wayВ theВ governmentВ triedВ toВ valueВ theВ livesВ ofВ theВ victimsВ wasВ flawedВ inВ differentВ areasВ ofВ theirВ pointВ ofВ view, В andВ KennethВ FeinbergВ recognizedВ thisВ sixВ yearsВ later. В ThatВ aВ life'sВ valueВ isВ moreВ thanВ howВ muchВ aВ personВ canВ pay. В IВ believeВ thatВ noВ oneВ shouldВ beВ ableВ toВ putВ aВ valueВ onВ lifeВ becauseВ theyВ haveВ nothingВ toВ justifyВ itВ exceptВ forВ theirВ opinionВ whichВ aВ lotВ ofВ peopleВ wouldВ mostВ likelyВ disagreeВ with. В IВ thinkВ thatВ thereВ shouldn'tВ beВ aВ valueВ onВ aВ person'sВ lifeВ becauseВ everyoneВ isВ differentВ noВ oneВ personВ isВ theВ sameВ asВ theВ other, В soВ youВ canВ notВ goВ offВ ofВ aВ reasonableВ thingВ thatВ canВ linkВ individualsВ together. В

TheВ valueВ ofВ lifeВ isВ theВ oneВ thingВ thatВ everyoneВ hasВ theirВ ownВ opinionВ on, В fromВ theВ regularВ workingВ classВ toВ theВ famousВ idealizedВ figures, В andВ toВ theВ government. В EveryoneВ hasВ theirВ ownВ interpretationВ ofВ howВ muchВ aВ lifeВ isВ worth. В TheВ governmentВ viewedВ theВ valueВ ofВ lifeВ asВ justВ moneyВ toВ identifyВ theВ personВ thatВ wasВ lost, В andВ theyВ didВ stateВ thatВ " We'reВ notВ tryingВ toВ makeВ youВ
