    Kant doesn't care for treating other only or primarily as means to one's goal, so B is the opposite of Kantian system.

    If you must choose either A or B, that leaves A, which is a rather loosely-worded summary of Kant's self-focused process of considering all relevant data (including what other people are doing and saying, qua data), in order to develop a Moses-like universal law-giving, albeit based on "WWKD?" (what would Kant do?), rather than on some God-inspired Word of guidance.

    Default behavior is probably at the root of all human beings, by that I mean people are basically selfish, and the strong survive. Ethics, laws, etc.keep us in line.

    So, that would probably mean B, not that we SHOULD, but that's how a lot of people are.
