Everyone has the same value as a human being. However, everyone has a different value as a part of society. The former is in no way dependent of the latter and should always override any perceived worth or detriment to the society by the society. And even if we would, God forbid, have to make a decision who to give our last piece of gum to..that in no way is implying that we have the ability to impart value to others. Just because I would save John Mayer from falling off a cliff instead of my chem teacher doesn't make him any more worthy of life and it's disgusting to think someone would flatter themselves so by thinking their actions and/or opinions could have anything to do with it.
