Imo revenge is a neccesity. don't get me wrong, I don't mean revenge as a tool to get your kicks.I mean revenge to administer justice. 99% of the
time the courts give pathetic little sentences for serious crimes(you may not agree but if anyone touched my family two things could happen,I'd go to
prison or I wouldn't get caught).Not that I'm a violent person, but the U.K court system is a joke when it comes to punishment.On a smaller scale
revenge is also good,when I was about 9 or 10 I got bullied, teachers didn't help, my parents going in didn't help it carried on(I wasn't the only
one).Finally my father told me to deal with it properly,and so I did.I fought back and I fought back sneaky and dirtyhell yeah I did it when his back
was turned, I was only young and he'd made my life miserable! I tell you this, the bulling stopped, not just for me but for my friends as well, why?
because they took the opportunity to fight back once he was down.revenge for all. remember, revenge is NEVER brave....it is a resort you fall back to
when all else fails or you know nothing else will administer the correct justice YOU feel is required by the situation.
It would be a great world if we all forgave and forgot but that simply wont happen because that is just an invitation to the scum out there to do
what they want with minimal consequences.
I applaud the ops beliefs, but until the world is big enough to punish correctly and not confuse punishment with rehabilitation then revenge will be
a part of most peoples lives.I'm not that big enough yet either I'm afraid,sorry.
