Humans, according to Brink, probably do not deserve any special consideration in nature as Kant famously argued for in the essay "What is Enlightenment? (Kant questions humans have the right to declare anything as true). In the essay Kant, Kant argues "some readers acknowledge themselves as slaves of authority rather than working toward reason" (E3). Kant is requiring that humans always follow their own reason and if they are put aside reason for something else like authority, they are not using their rational minds correctly. Kant further argues that authorities develop within society to protect the people and come with their own rational practices that people think as reasonable. There are directives to stay out of a pond as it is polluting the water, but the value of self-preservation might dictate why one might go in. In this explanation, Kant clearly makes an assumption that authority has a rational order behind it. If so, humans are worthy only if they do not get submitted to authority as they justify their own thoughts. Authority and reason, according to Brink, have to be rationally justified. Indeed, reason cannot exist if authority does. Unfortunately, Kant lives in a society where the jurisprudence is absent of a whole. Society is clearly in need of a jurisprudence since humans act poorly on their own. Furthermore, people submit to authorities as Kant argued and question people is normal. It leads to the thought the humans that do not submit to any authorities are the thinkers." Kant put simply never spoke of the barbarous countryside and the slave-holders who enclosed common rights, the private persons who wanted to be thought them were snared into the of assertion and maintained that they were understood concerning the trust agency of sublimity.
