Because of the epistemological problems connected to the utilization of the categorical imperative, and the unmanageable amount of possible ethical responsibilities in Kant (27), it seems logical that he generally places all actions under legal protection, so long as they are compatible with everybody's universal freedom of action.
The author tells us, rightly, "D does not necessarily imply a libertarian ethic." He also tells us that compliance with D is a categorical imperative on the grounds that it (1) passes a universalization test, and (2) permits action and the survival of mankind.
