    Use Kant's Categorical Imperative to test your desire to “flush the toilet at 3 P.M. today.” The universalized form of this maxim is “everyone should flush the toilet at 3 P.M today.” But the nation's plumbing system would be destroyed if everyone flushed at the same time, so you cannot universalize flushing the toilet.   Morality for Immanuel Kant means acting in accordance with the categorical imperative. In fact, as is well known, for Kant, the categorical imperative is the supreme principle of morality.

“Thou shalt not steal,” for example, is categorical as distinct from the hypothetical imperatives associated with desire, such. Kant argued that morality was prescriptive.

Moral statements are categorical in that they prescribe actions regardless of the result. A hypothetical imperative doesn't prescribe or demand any action.

It is the complete opposite of a categorical imperative (I ought to does not allow for desires / needs) The categorical imperative has 3. Kant’s theory is a version of rationalism—it depends on reason. Kant argues that no consequence can have fundamental moral worth; the only thing that is good in and of itself is the Good Will.

The Good Will freely chooses to do its moral duty. That duty, in turn, is dictated solely by reason. The Good Will. Kant’s "Groundwork" opens with the line: “The only thing that is unconditionally good is a good will.” Kant’s argument for this belief is quite plausible.

A presentation of Kant’s conceptions of the good will, duty and the categorical imperative: The good will is the only thing in the universe that is unconditionally good.

The good will is good because it wills the good; that is, it acts from respect for duty, which is the expression of the moral law. The categorical imperative is Kant's litmus test for determining whether our moral principles conform to reason. Thus, according to Kant, we are free only if we obey the categorical imperative.
