Yes and No...
Ask yourself -
A woman is being raped
You can stop this happening by killing the man
Do you stop this from happening?
What would of happened if the means hadn't take place?
Additional consequences of the means/end
IF we could predict the future weighing up the consequences we clearly see that letting the woman get raped is the better option
But we only know that - the woman will be raped an the rapist will enjoy it - most people would say that it is "OK" to kill in those circumstances
Was it a choice between a greater or a lesser evil forced upon you by the actions of others?
therefore u should of passed by
First answer (not true):"The end does not justify the means" means that what ever effort or what ever reason you had for doing some thing was not was not justified, because the end result was not what you wanted. And so all of the time and effort to reach that end was wasted.True answer:"The end justifies the means" is a phrase which means that, if you have a goal, it does not matter how you reach it, as long as you reach it. For example, say that your goal is to get an A on a test. If you believe that the end justifies the means, cheating on the test to get the A does not matter to you. All that matters is that you got the A."The end DOES NOT justify the means" is a phrase meaning that you must take a moral route to reach your goal. You cannot break the rules or do anything bad in order to reach your goal. If you wish to get an A on a test and you believe that the end DOES NOT justify the means, you would probably study or use legitimate means to get the A on the test.
The phrase is "the end justifies the means." That means that you think that it is ok to do something nasty if the long range result is good. Taken too far, this can be a very bad policy. The reverse wording, "the means justify the end" makes no sense. "Means" means the method you use to accomplish your goal. Is this suggesting that no matter how evil your goal, it is ok if you use virtuous methods to accomplish it? How is such a thing possible?
There is no one or final answer. It is a matter of porportionality. It is a matter of degree. Generally speaking though the end does not, in almost all cases, ever justify the means. This question must be answered one step at a time, each step of the way, to the final end. It cannot be bundled into allowing some evil along the way finally in the end leading to a final greater good.
Means justify the end. End is the same for all that is death. It doesn't matter how you die what matters is what you do throughout your life. People are judged by their deeds. A wrongdoer remains a wrongdoer whatever though his achievements may be. Many personalities have been assassinated, but we remember them not due to their tragic end but due their contributions:)
It is a phrase that means as long as the desired result is achieved, it doesn't matter what you do to get those results. "The ends justify the means" is a Satanic doctrine teaching that we may do evil without becoming evil if our motive is good enough. So the question- Do the ends justify the means?- may signify the attempt to examine this moral abyss critically.
