And to be universalisable, a rule must be able to be conceived and willed to be acted upon by all without contradiction. To see how this works, consider Kant’s (1947:85–86) objections to a rule for making promises that will later be broken. How would things stand if my maxim became a universal law? I then see straight away that this maxim can never rank as a universal law of nature and be self-consistent, but must necessarily contradict itself. For the universality of a law that everyone believing himself to be in need can make any promise he pleases with the intention not to keep it would make promising, and the very purpose of promising, itself impossible, since no one would believe he was being promised anything, but would laugh at utterances of this kind as empty shams.

A condition for attributing moral responsibility, as Thompson (1985:559) pointed out, is that a: person’s actions or omissions…[are]…a cause of the outcome. However…because many people contribute in many different ways to the decisions and policies of an organisation, we may not be able to determine, even in principle, who is morally responsible for those decisions and policies. And so, it is concluded, the moral evaluation of officials in their organisational lives is inappropriate. Although organisational activity can be so structured that the delineation of causal chains becomes not only difficult, but perhaps impossible, at least for the purpose of attributing responsibility at a level more fine-grained than the whole organisation, this argument nevertheless gains some unwarranted plausibility through a conflation of two sets of conditions.
