Unjust means, unjust causes


Would I do something inherently wrong for the right outcome? Would an honourable cause grant the use of dishonourable means?

Some matters may appear terribly intricate, impossible to assess with the simple logic of black and white, good and evil, right or wrong. However, it is also possible to dwell too long on the complexity of an affair to justify dubious acts. Is a cause still just if it demands unjust actions?

Many a complicated circumstance results in unjustifiable acts not because they were the only way out but because they were easier or faster. Most of the time, we can do better.
