1) The end justifies the means
2) The end does not justify the means
I've always been in the gray area, some would call it a horns hold up my halo mentality. I believe the end does justify the means. For a greater good, hardship will arise and sacrifice is inevitable. This leads to the question "what is good/bad?"
Which belief system applies to you & why have you chosen it? I'm interested to see what each type chose.
