The end justifies the means 為達目的,不擇手段

“為達目的,不擇手段”語出尼可洛馬基維利 (Niccolo Machiavelli, 1469-1527)

You can use bad or immoral methods as long as you accomplish something good by using them (Not everyone agrees with this idea).

EXAMPLE

“Unfortunately, we’ll have to cut down the forest to make space for the golf course, but I feel the end justifies the means.”

Do the ends justify the means?

The answer to this question depends on what the ends or goals are and what means are being used to achieve them. If the goals are good and noble, and the means we use to achieve them are also good and noble, then yes, the ends do justify the means. But that’s not what most people mean when they use the expression. Most use it as an excuse to achieve their goals through any means necessary, no matter how immoral, illegal or unpleasant the means may be. What the expression usually means is something like “It doesn’t matter how you get what you want as long as you get it.”
