Immanuel Kant on Colonialism - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 315
Colonialism/Kant/Höffe: Kant's world citizenship consists of a well-determined right of cooperation, namely a right to visit, not a right to hospitality: whether individuals, groups, companies or states, even religious communities - they are all allowed to "knock" elsewhere, but have no right to enter. In particular, they are not allowed to kill, enslave or rob the one who knocks, nor, conversely, are they allowed to subjugate, exploit or enslave the natives.
Colonialism: In this context, the colonial policy of the time is strongly condemned without compromise. The "injustice" that the "acting states of our part of the world" did to foreign countries and peoples goes "to the point of horror", because "the inhabitants there reckoned them for nothing".(1)
, Cf. >Postcolonialism.
