philosophical question: Do the means justify the means?
I mean like is it ok or necessary to commit bad means to bring about good means for an end (assuming the end is good)
Ex. Think of a mobster who creates a laundry shop to launder money, you go to a job in the laundry shop, use the money you earn to get your kid through college. After learning where your wages came from, would you still have worked there?
Alternatively: do ends justify ends
Like should a good end or goal need to exist in order for a good end or goal to happen? (assuming the means are good)
