10. And why am I not surprised
that you don't understand something this basic? The worth of a life, on an emotional basis, is subjective. To me, my children have a value that they have to no one else, except their dad. Intellectually we can recognize that no life has anymore intrinsic worth than another. Emotionally, it's a different story, and that's how people relate: Those they love have a more profound value to them, than people they've never met.
