Deontology adheres to the Golden Rule which is to do unto others what you want them to do unto you while teleology does not; rather, it is also referred to as the greatest happiness principle because it justifies an action if it produces the greatest happiness and least amount of pain. They derive all moral requirements from a final end or good they call a person's eudaimonia, translated either as happiness or as flourishing. On the contrary, when debating the views of the deontological ethicist, one might say that this approach is too extreme.

These theories can still identify the good independently of the right and say right acts maximize the good, but if it is essential to consequentialism to be impartial, as again some assume, they are teleological but not consequentialist. I don't know that I can agree, it seems obvious Con was arguing about specific aspects. He argues that because laws are deontological, it shows deontology to be more practical. Others involve patterns of distribution across persons, such as that they enjoy equal pleasures or, on a different view, pleasures proportioned to their merit.
The example is not intended as an example of how to apply teleology so much as show that there clearly exists circumstances where an action, like killing a young Hitler, could be morally justified if we knew the outcome.

Immanual Kant was a deontological ethicist and believed that there was a principle of human conduct that is universal and applicable to all rational beings, without any exceptions. One main problem is that utilitarianism, if adopted, justifies as morally appropriate things that are clearly immoral. R1 outlined the basic framework for the debate, and that the BoP was shared. The deontological extremist would say that if any single element within this set of means is, by itself, an objectively immoral act, then the end does not justify the means no matter what the end result of not following the path outlined by the set of means may be Conversely, a teleological extremist argues that, given numerous sets of means toward a set of ends with each set of means leading to its respective set of ends, it is ethically obligatory to follow the path outlined by the set of means which leads to the most preferable end even if it means committing objectively immoral acts. You go over to the bully to stop him from bullying your friend, then you and the bully get into a fight.
New argument: Teleology is also much too subjective Teleological ethics, in practice, necessarily requires its practitioner to imagine the consequences of the actions he should perform.

Pleasure is the only truth of life.
