It's generally accepted that you should judge someone not by what they say instead by what they do. It's important to remember that sometimes people do evil while trying to do good.when someone's misguided notions end up harming someone are they than a bad person even if they thought it was good? If Hitler honestly believed he was doing the world justice is he still an evil person? If Ghandi on the other hand believed he was doing the world harm would he still be a good person? Which is more important someone's intentions or the result?
