What Ghandi and the vast majority of people, it seems, fail to understand is that the admonition, "an eye for an eye," is not a call to remove eyes, or even to justify retribution, but rather to insist that the punishment should fit the crime, which is a very rational appeal.
Taken in the context in which "an eye for an eye" is intended, Ghandi's quote makes no sense.
