: Certainly teh Bolsheviks and particulalry stalninists have used an 'end justifies teh means' ethics, although I doubt, strictly, it is utilitarian, Trotsky in 'Their Morals and Hours' relates all ethics to the supreme good of the Proletarian revolution- hence when he took hostages and murdered people it was good, when Stalin did it, it was bad.

Bob: How does taking hostages and murdering people end up being good? How come when Stalin did it, it's bad?

It sounds like utilitarianism....
