Moral blindness (or “closed eyes”) is not a call to otherworldliness, but rather indifference to temporal distinctions (e.g, class, financial status). Such moral blindness is the obverse of moral vision of our common kinship as creatures. Both advantaged and disadvantaged are equally obligated and equally able to fulfill the obligation.

Keywords:   blindness, kinship, moral obligation, otherworldliness, vision
