    Very well argued.

    I would suggest defining "rational" as you haven't and it's important to do so.
    Also, "Kant" not "Kants" in the second paragraph.

    Kant's deontological arguments are regarding morality. He says we should never commit murder and thus murder is "immoral". Not "irrational", necessarily. That is a signifi-Kant (lol, sorry) weakness.

    Would have been nice to discuss whether murder for its own end can be rational, rather than just for a benefit or in war or something.

    But it was well structured and well argued, with (mostly) correct vocabulary, and was precise and concise.
