THE ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS IN SOME EMERGENCY SITUATIONS!!!

The ends justify the means is just a statement that immoral means can be used to justify a moral end. In some life or death emergency situations this is indeed the case. Immoral murder exists during war and the end of war or peace is what justifies the murder.

 

It is immoral to murder someone, especially innocent humans but during War which is a life or death emergency situation and often a case of selfdefense, immoral murder can be justified.

 

Two atomic bombs were dropped on Japan during World War II and destroyed many “innocent” Japanese but it ended the war and the killing or murder. The two atomic bombs may not have ended the war and in this case many more Japanese cities would have been fire bombed, more “innocent” lives would have been lost, and the United States would have lost about 2 million soldier’s lives. Many lives would also have been lost in Japanese conquered territories where the Japanese acted in murderous brutal fashion. Is immoral murder justified during a selfdefense war? Yes, because it is an emergency situation of life or death of a nation and it’s inhabitants.

 

Dresden, a German city, was fire bombed during the war and many “innocent” citizens were killed. However, many of those innocent humans were contributing in a major way to the German war machine and leveling Dresden definitely shortened the war to some extent and in the end saved many more lives.

 

During war immoral lying is also justified such as feeding false information to the enemy about troop positions and plans of attack. Even though there are theoretical rules of war pertaining to the humane treatment of war prisoners, especially captured soldiers, even these rules can be broken as they were by the Japanese. It is a fact of life that immoral means can be used to justify the ends which are victory or peace and the cessation of murder or killing or the end of war.

 

More recently the Iraqis in their war against ISIS bombed many innocent civilians in Mozul. ISIS also used many civilians as shields for their soldiers and even had munitions and military occupying hospitals and schools. ISIS was ruthless and to win you had to be even more ruthless and bomb the shit out of them including many civilians. Did the immoral means justify the ends? Yes, because it was war, and even a war against a military which promoted its brutal terrorism worldwide.

 

In times of peace does the immoral means ever justify a moral end? Yes, sometimes immoral lying can be justified in emergency life or death situations.

 

If you were rather well off and a stranger with a weapon knocked on your door and asked if your offspring were at home then you would probably be shocked with fear that maybe it was a kidnapper or someone who wanted to kill your offspring. You may lie and say that your offspring were not home. Even though the probability that your assumption is wrong is probably rather great, trying to protect your flesh and blood from possible imminent harm with a lie can be justified. Better safe than sorry.

 

Although this is not a serious issue in most developed nations you could justify immoral stealing of food to feed you and your starving offspring in a crisis situation, especially in a third world extreme poverty situation.

 

Although not legally considered murder you can intentionally kill or immorally murder a lethally armed assailant in selfdefense. Once again it is a life or death emergency situation where either you or the assailant will die.

 

You may be able to come up with more life or death emergency situations where immoral acts may be justified but I will point out one which is not valid.

 

You may try to justify the immoral murder of one healthy individual to save the life of three dying patients who need a heart, liver, and bladder transplant. Your logic or reasoning may be that murdering one to save the lives of three is justified. However, follow this logic in the long duration and you will find that you definitely would not want to live in a society where many innocent victims would be murdered to save the lives of three or more unhealthy individuals needing transplants. You may be the next chosen to sacrifice your life so that many unhealthy individuals may live. That would be true injustice in society in the short and long duration.

 

Immoral means can seldom be justified to achieve a seemingly moral end in times of peace. If you feel that immorally stealing money or taxation is unjust then you are a moral purist and unfortunately taxation is a serious exception to the absolute moral rule.

 

There are basically 5 situations where stealing can be justified and I have written about these exceptions in my blog article and book STEAL. Yes, unfortunately many things in life are not black or white, yes or no, or completely moral or completely immoral, but shades of grey or exceptions to an absolute rule.

THE TRUTH ABOUT RATIONING+

2009BW6683_jpg_ds

Ration: to permit a legal number and/or amount of a subset(s) during emergencies such as climate caused destruction or wartime

The government sometimes rations food and water during wartime or hurricane devastation. The only time you personally may ration food and water yourself is if you were lost in the woods with only a little supply of food and water in your backpack.

Rationing is for emergencies which modern society has few of so you seldom have to store dried food and water for your own personal consumption. There are survivalists who store enough food, water, and basic necessities for a year or two and are truly prepared for any reasonable emergency which may occur.

I am not trying to scare you but maybe you too should store some food for emergencies. What would you do if there was an electrical power outage for a month or two months? Something to seriously think about!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT REFUGEES+

syrian-refugees

Refugee: n. a human who leaves a territory because of (war and/or persecution) and/or (natural disaster and/or trouble)

When humans flee a territory or country because of war, political or religious persecution, a natural disaster such as drought, or economic hardship then they are called refugees. Refugee camps are frequently set up to deal with the situation temporarily and some eventually go back when the war or natural disaster is over. Many choose to remain where they fled to or even immigrate further to countries which will accept them legally.

There is legal immigration and illegal immigration and the latter is done by very desperate humans who risk it all to try and find a safe haven from their economic misery or dire predicament.

My parents were war refugees afraid of communist persecution or death during World War II and I empathize with many other modern day refugees trying to escape from perilous conditions in their territory or country.

THE TRUTH ABOUT WAR

gears-of-war-12_00433413

Historically war was the way to expand empires and subjugate different cultures. Today because of assured mutual nuclear destruction it is highly improbable that war will break out between major powers like Russia, China, and the USA.

Regional wars are still possible but increasingly big money is being used to rule the world. Iran may seem like a warlike threat but economic sanctions by almost all the nations of the world brought Iran to the negotiating table about it’s nuclear ambitions.

Extreme Muslim fundamentalism may be a regional concern but the probability that they will become a nuclear terrorist threat to other nations in the world is highly improbable unless Iran goes nuclear.

CONCLUSION:

Future nuclear war is highly improbable and for regional military conflicts Special Forces and a Marine Corps backup should be all the military force which is necessary to prevent the expansionist ambitions of small local tyrants.

A cyber threat to the military and a nation’s electrical infrastructure is the only realistic threat which must be planned for and defended against.
