From Rules for Radicals, A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals by Saul Alinsky.

“Means and ends are so qualitatively interrelated that the true question has never been the proverbial one, ‘Does the End justify the Means?’ but always has been “Does this particular end justify this particular means?'”
