I do not think so. Will be moral and ethical when trying to achieve it.

Hi Solitaire,
Yes, there are moral and ethical limits to what we can do to achieve our goals in life. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless.

Yes. because I am immoral and unethical. Hahaha. Seriously, if the end is really worth it and the means would not compromise my values, i will.

Hi Hanging On A Hyphen,
You have a sense of humor. I like that. Anyway, we always use our sound judgment to determine whether the end justify the means. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless.

I don't think so. In my Philosophy class, this adage was used for machiavellism type of rule. They wage wars and steal land just to help their people attain prosperity.
It's like justifying evil ways to attain good. There is nothing in God's law about that.

try reading althusser's reading of machiavelli. i assure you of a very fresh perspective.

personally, i don't subscribe to this simplified excerpt of machiavelli's work, rather, applying it into specific contexts.

p.s. i like the concept of your page Mr. A. certainly fresh.
