What do you mean, 'schmorally'?

"It bears notice that Kant interpreted “fiat iustitia,

pereat mundus” as “es herrsche Gerechtigkeit, die Schelme

in der Welt mögen auch insgesamt darüber zu Grunde gehen”

[let justice reign even if it wipes out all the villains in

possible way."

How was it 'just' that Samson killed 30 Philistines on random at the beginning of feud for their garments?
