Consequentialism

Consequentialism is a theory of normative ethics which states that right or good action is that which produces the most desirable consequences.

The best-known version of consequentialism is utilitarianism, which asserts that happiness is the fundamental goal of ethics, and that right actions are those which produce the most amount of happiness (and/or minimize unhappiness).
