Either will or would means the action in the future, right? Please.
What about "will" in this case? it simply means the future action?
He would never do anything that went against his conscience.
I. This sentence simply means the past action, but now he has changed to do things that goes against his conscience , right?
II. Any difference between will and would when they refer to the future action?

2. No, for the future they mean essentially the same.
