The lengths she is willing to go to and the means she is prepared to use, however, undermine her goals due to the moral implications. So her actions cannot be condoned, even if her ideals are worthwhile. I felt sympathy at her cause at the same time as if felt disgust over her methods. That's what writing a good character is all about.
This above quote talks about Kreia, and I agree with it totally...except with the talking of Kreia's moral implications. It seems as though that what she is doing is wrong, and that put in doubt her crusade. She is, after all, a Sith Lord, and a splendid liar.
But, the Force is something to fear, something to condemen...Jediphile made that point. But...er...well, he also condemens Kreia for what she is doing to stop it.
So, here is a question: Kreia is wrong, but so is the Force. How do you destroy the Force without harming any civilians or doing any bad deeds?
My answer is that you cannot, and that answer is what makes K2 so effective as a very Nihlistic piece of work...the only way to destroy evil is to be evil. But if someone can come up with a way to destroy the Force without having to do what Kreia done, then speak up. Any way to smash the Force must be good, at least to some people...
And, no, Darth Nihlius does not count for destroying the Force, due to the lots of colletral damage he would cause.
