Intentions and consequences

I have just found this in an old (2004) interview of Eugene Volokh by Norm Geras:
What philosophical thesis do you think it most important to disseminate? > Actual consequences of legislation are more important than intentions.

What philosophical thesis do you think it most important to combat? > If our hearts are pure, our policies are right.
