YOU are the one to decide, there is no god to tell you whether or not you have the right. The Law will try to claim you don't have the right however why did the murderer have the right to do so? NEVER leave YOUR decisions for others to make.

Indeed, revenge is an "eye for an eye" after all. Once you've attained your vengeance someone will want revenge against you and the cycle of death continues indefinitely. Also NJ ripping it straight from MW2 :P



As for myself, I've had quite a few people around me die. Some were accidents while others weren't so much. I didn't become consumed by anger or vengeance because I've never had strong feelings towards friends. The reason is simple, I've never had friends I'd be willing to die for or leave my back to(figuratively speaking). They've never been anything more then what you'd call drinking buddies. Come the time when I find someone I really "love and care about" I wouldn't doubt that I'd try to kill the murderer and everyone he knows. I know what my anger is capable of as I've come close to killing family simply because they pissed me off. Psychopathic possibly, honestly its not something I'm proud of but its not really something I can simply change.

Bah, seriousness on the new years. Time for drinking bwahahaha!!!

Well i guess it all matters if one thinks there is a god or not. u obviously believe there is no god, while i do. From your perspective if there is no god, how would u feel actually taking the life of another living thing? Chances are that people loved the one u killed so you arent just hurting one life, but many more. and would the friend of yours who died really want u to get vengeance on their murderer? Just stop the chain of evil before it starts.

as much as i'd love to get revenge, its just not the smart thing to do. i have a lot to lose, and its not worth giving up what i have in the process.

I'd get revenge but I'll think about how to do it first. Cause if we let things like that go and immediately "forgive" them just cause it's the right thing to do, they'll think what they're doing is right and no harm done.

Besides, if it's someone important to you, the murderer should earn your forgiveness, not gained easily like nothing happened at all.

In a hypothetical situation, there is a difference between what you say you would do, and what would actually happen.

Hypothetically speaking, I would not react against the murderer through physical violence. It would only add to the chain of hate, and most likely that's the intention of the murderer, if the murder was without reason or purpose: to create more hatred and revenge. Thus, the murderer wins.

Of course, this is hypothetically speaking. In real life, it probably wouldn't go this way.

As for the Confucius quote, there really are two ways of interpreting it, hehe. What Confucius probably meant was to dig one grave for your partner, one grave for yourself. However, I suppose out of context it could be interpreted as one grave for your partner, one grave for his/her murderer. Don't think the latter is the one that he meant though, lol.

I do have to apologize for one thing. It's a bad habbit of mine to forget that people believe in god so my choice of words were....poorly made. I didn't quite mean it the way I said it, allow my to clarify.

Assuming god does indeed exist, he will not tell you to take vengeance even if it can be viewed as righteous. In the 10 commandments he does indeed say murder is wrong, however heres the thing. Religious idols such as kings in the past has been strong believers of the bible and god, however they always found their reason to take up arms and start their wars claiming its righteousness in action. Clearly god didn't tell them to start the grand crusades, it was a choice they themselves made for their own reasons. So in essence my initial statement persists, YOU need to make your own choice, do NOT allow others to make them for you. Even if you believe its walking the path of evil its a choice you yourself need to make, its what freedom is.

And 2ndly, you did the exact same thing to me just not as rudely as I did
I do not believe in god or heaven/hell. And you say that my friend who's dead may not want me to seek vengeance but hes dead, he cant feel anything. Revenge would be for myself and no one else. Finally you say that the friends of the murderer will feel the same towards me as I did him. This is no doubt true, however did I not say I'd kill everyone he knows. My vengeance would not stop at him alone, I'd seek to make him suffer a thousand hells compared to the one he made me suffer.



There is also a 3rd way to interpret it and the one I've always preferred. You dig 2 graves, not for your partner but for yourself and the person you seek vengeance against.


In the end though I suppose you could say revenge is "evil" however, this entire world is evil. More times then not murderers like that get away from the law because they have connections, letting him run free and cause more pain to others. Is that not the true evil?

Anyways, happy belated new years to everyone
