According to Socrates, the moral person wins out over the immoral person even though the immoral person takes advantage of the moral person in matters of money and business. This claim is incredibly true. It is true due to the fact that a moral person doesn’t find his/her happiness in matters of money and business.

Utilitarianism would say to keep lying, it keeps everyone out of harm 's way. Kantianism would say it is immoral because the woman would certainly want her children to obey her own death wishes.
Utilitarianism would want execution, the payout would make the people happy due to their detest of the person. Kantianism would not want the person to be executed because no person wishes execution.
Kant states that it is always wrong to use another person for one’s own purpose. I disagree, the concept of employment is a key factor. In most employment positions we have a superior, someone to tell us what to do. Metaphorically let’s imagine I work for a paper company, in the corporate branch. I have a superior, who also has a superior. In the long run, we are all working to benefit people who are profiting off of the
