No. That's like beating a child do well in school, and then saying the abuse is the way to get results. You have to ask yourself "at what cost" if you are going with that logic. And even still, one's idea of justice might be different from another's, so no one can ever really say the end justifies the mean.
Rarely, but sometimes. Unfortunately it's usually said to justify unjustified means and assuage feelings of guilt.
Not usually. But maybe if no one is hurt.
No, I do however think the means justify the end.
Excellent ? and 1 that continues to plague humanity,, as to how to best answer/reply. Most strictly speaking,, NO the ends never justify the means.

In that case the 'ends', women's liberation,, as it were,,, DID justify the 'means',,, abortion sad to say did free millions and millions of American girls/women,, to be,,, fill in the blank as you feel most appropriate.
All depends doesn't it?
