When do the ends justify the means?.

It’s absolutely contextual, thus controversial.

(I’m not into politics or economy at all, so leave this turd aside for the time being.)

What do you take for granted as a mean and as an end?

First, what do you want to achieve? Is it for you? Is it to leave a legacy (the über-famous “bigger than yourself” idea)?

Will you harm yourself in doing so? Will you harm somebody else? How much? Is it an everlasting wound or just a mere “necessary evil”?

See how much parameters are to consider? It makes it tricky to tell if yes or fuck, the end justifies the means.

If the means involve using and abusing someone, it stops there. You won’t get a civilized end.

This is my point of view and it is biased. I have been so much butt-raped just to be left as the underdog and see others thrive…

Is the end the purpose of one person, or one of a tribe? Cases are different. Sometimes extremely remote.

I don’t have a definite answer to this.
