Consequentialist theories differ in how they define moral goods. State consequentialism, also known as Mohist consequentialism, is an ethical theory which evaluates the moral worth of an action based on how much it contributes to the welfare of a state. Some argue that consequentialist and deontological theories are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
