As I read through the comments I have realized that much debate has gone into the subject of revenge. It seems as though the disagreements sprout from a difference in what each person means by revenge. I would like to argue that what some people in this argument are calling revenge is the part of justice that gives bad things to enemies, while what others mean by revenge is a hateful desire to harm in order to fulfill one’s emotional sense of injustice. It seems the group that defined revenge as the negative side of justice merely meant by saying that the king avenged that he executed justice without implication of malice, and the group that defined revenge as emotional anger would agree.
