In the story The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas two points of view are introduced The Kantian point of view is contrasted with the Utilitarian point of view In the story there is a city named Omelas in which a single child suffers so that the community may live with great happiness Most of the community accepts the fact that one child must suffer for happiness to exist However the odd citizen becomes so disgusted with the fact the child is allowed to suffer that they leave Omelas for good In this essay one character will be a Utilitarian and another character will be Kantian The two characters will debate the issue of sacrificing one person for the good of the community and they will answer the question Would you walk away from Omelas The first character is named Sandra and the other is named Ben Finally this essay assumes that Omelas is a unique city on the planet earth Ben I went to look at him yesterday Ben You know him the one locked up in the basement of the old church I finally got up enough courage to go and see what the sacrificed one really looks likeSandra I dont like how he is just called the sacrificed one Im sure he must have a name Everybody has a namethats just part of what make us a personBen What do you mean He needs no name Why would he need a name Nobody is allowed to talk to him because that might give the impression that we actually care about him You only need a name if you interact with other people just like how when I talk to you I call you by your name I will never talk to the sacrificed one Sandra Never But that doesnt show any respect for him he must deserve at least a little respect Every person on Earth deserves respect even the sacrificed
