    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.

    Gold is gold no matter how you got it it will remain the same. maybe in few years you might regret doing what you did to get it and feel bad about it but its still going to be gold.

    That goal is forever tainted if someone does something evil to get far in life.

    I don’t think ends justify the means, you don’t deserve it if it was taken unfairly.

    i do believe ends justify the means. however then again i don’t believe it does. One reason being you should work for what you want not take it. A reason i do believe it justifies it because in order to get it the person may have went threw a lot of trouble competing with someone else to who wanted the same thing.
