Kant is evil because his epistemology divorced man's mind from an objective reality. Kant could have said anything at all on ethics and politics, the damage was already done. Since man had no 'real' objective apprehension of reality, it was laughable to proceed to prescriptive aspects of philosophy. His disciples, and those influenced by him, certainly fleshed this out into the destructive subjectivism and relativism that were and are the supports of collectivism. Kant's fairly juvenile reformulations of the ubiquitous golden rule are quite harmless and quite forgotten to the modern collectivist because they floated away, weightless, when Kant's metaphysics and epistemology severed man's mind from an objective assessment of 'what is', and therefore from any rational force in prescribing what man 'ought do.'
