How is it that some individuals have come
to believe, that an unprincipled action,
could achieve an honourable harvest?
If you believe; "The ends justify the means."
Then you would have to, knowingly
and willfully, cross one of these lines?
I would lie...
I would lie and cheat...
I would lie, cheat and plunder...
I would lie, cheat, plunder, and rape...
I would lie, cheat, plunder, rape and burn...
I would lie, cheat, plunder, rape, burn and murder...
Now... how far did you decid that you would
go in obtaining your goal of good intentions?
If you decided that you would only cross the first line,
then you have told me that at the very least,
I can expect you to lie to me about anything
and everything, at any place and at anytime!
Now... how could I ever really trust you?
Any goal one sets forth to accomplish,
should be based on ones moral precepts.
Any action taken towards attaining a goal,
is a marked display of that belief system.
If you take the low road, then you will show me
the true depths of your beliefs are rather shallow,
as you will seem not to actually trust in all those
theological teachings you swear is the true word
of God... I guess you really just don't trust God!
That the ends will justify the means, is only
the excuse of the moralizer, better known as;
If the excuse is for the justification;
then there is an imbalance of virtue,
the convictions of one's belief system,
is in conflict with one's actions taken.
You can only be either moral or immoral,
you can not be both moral
and immoral at the same time...
Do you still believe your noble ends,
can truly justify your deceitful means?
