     According to the article “Utilitarianism : Concept to Thai Political Phenomenon” ”, the main purpose is to the conceptual issue seems to be in line with the common sense of most people in today's society, often claiming that good deeds are done for the benefit of the common people. But since the criteria for deciding the actions of advantage are to focus on the outcome of the action, not the action itself Sometimes the act is bad or wrong, but it results in benefits for many people, it is acceptable, such as stealing, claiming to be stolen from wealthy people to help the poor. This theft is legitimate, because the reduced benefits of the rich are not comparable to the benefits of many more poor people. Or during the past, there were many extraordinary killings and suspects of drug trafficking The offense was not correct because the suspect had no opportunity to go to court to prove himself, perhaps he was innocent. But this behavior has been accepted by some in society because it is believed that it is to prevent others from daring to trade drugs and will eventually lead to the deprivation of the society, which benefits the general public. Therefore, judging the actions based on the benefits of many people that occur from the action may not always be correct. If we apply concepts that are useful in everyday life, then we need to consider everything, not just the consequences of actions, but also the actions that should be taken into consideration.
