Emma Goldman said the ends justified the means wrt killing Frick, but she later recanted that view and said the means are reflected in the end. Kropotkin had a similar, but brief, focus on violent means to an end, but quickly reversed that view.

The end does not justify the means. This unwraps the philosophy of anarchism. This also puts us into a difficult spot with how to effect change. :-/

The only answers compatible with revolution are that consequences determine whether something is moral and that ends justify means. Anything else makes actual change impossible
