I'd go back in time and rid the world of its future threat if I were able to successfully assasinate the targets without being caught.
But would I be able to take back some evidence from the future which would prove my motivation for eliminating said targets?
I wouldn't care about not being able to return to my own time, I don't have any friends for me here anyway. So I guess I wouldn't even mind going to jail.
I'd probably only go back in time in the first place if these future evildoers had a directly adverse impact upon my life. And doesn't the world need depopulation anyway?

By trying to do god works you may unleash an even more destructive evol influence, due to their energis still being present just not in the bodies you killed. Also you may offset time by being back in it. SO not a good look from my perspective. Why not just be patient and await cleaners to bring forth the path of the LAMB?

If the human race wants to worship their masters and give them the ability to do such horrific things, I really have to lay blame on the population, you get me? It's up to the people to dispose of such characters and if they fail to throw their shackles off and fight, well, I can't support such cowardice and sheer stupidity.
Another facet would be if I were born long into this tyranny. In that case, of course I would go back and secure my future (or past since you added that twist). There's just too many dynamics involved to give a sure answer.

If you had the ability and foresight to go back in time then maybe you don't need to kill anyone. Either change them in someway or persuade them to the otherside, maybe 'inception' style.
Or just try to empower the opposing force with either intelligence or other means.
And if the only only way to stop them is to kill them then so be it, but I am sure there would be consequences to that scenario too.
Interesting to ponder on.
