“If all people (7 billion of them) will take ZAR 620 000 000.00 when they’ve done a year’s work in order to get really, really rich then there are going to be very high salaries resulting in economic downfall. And people will never care about each other anymore because no one will need anything from anyone. People will buy things they don’t even need, which will result in products shortage.” So, this maxim is not conceivable in real world ruled by universal law.
If I were to earn ZAR 620 000 000.00 per year, I will buy anything that money can buy, I will spoil my children, family and friends. I will go to places that I have never went to. I will spend carelessly because I know there is plenty where that money came from. That will lead to an unhealthy life style, that is the reason you find that most rich people are fat. So, I will not be able to act rationally on my maxim.
Whitey Basson did not steal 620millin but he worked hard for it, so if he did not steal it and he worked for it, according to Kant he did nothing wrong. Whitey Basson did a legal act under legal circumstance and he got a legal ending. According to Kant this is acceptable.
Basson worked hard for Shoprite and he does deserve to be paid a huge amount, however 620million it is just too much for an individual while groups of people are struggling in poverty.
