What makes one person more valuable than another, when all people are equally valuable?

Welcome to Spine-Health



  • This is either a trick question or a rhetorical one. The only answers will invoke a combination of politics or religion or even better, both ;-)
  • I think people who can give love and kindness unconditionally are the most valuable people in the world.
  • Your right, the socio-political issues kept cropping up.There is a moviecoming out dealing with organ harvesting...I think. that begs the question. I like Caths answer though!
    I dont/cant figure out why people do that. but..
    the very big BUT! is that I Value certain people over others. so my argument has holes.
    But I was just wondering why we value differently.
    what do you think is the reason why it is so?

    Welcome to Spine-Health

  • It's in our nature. Race, creed, color is not relevant. It happens all over the world and has since the beginning. So far there is no proof that I can see that shows it is changing much. Yeah we get better at equal rights to a point. Then we move further on other things. What we need is balance. In everything in life. Including value. But it will never be equal.

    I like Paul's answer much better. You want it down to 1 word. POWER.

    Value is a property of objects, including physical objects as well as abstract objects representing their degree of importance...
    Ok, thats part of the Wikipedia definition.

    For me value of people is much simpler.

    Its those that are willing to give up of themselves for the well being of others. Someone who is more concerned about others than themselves.
    Yet, at the same time, those same people bring so much to others.

    Sometimes we look at the past and say just how value a person was. It could be a past president, a war hero, a humane support, whatever. As time goes by and we remember those names, they should be a level of value associated with them. But in the past, we also look at those 'demons' of society, the ones that wrecked havoc on society.

    So who really can judge a person's value??

    I guess a lot depends at what window you are peering into for your view.
