If it is more than an equal payback then it's wrong. Nothing more than what was done onto you.

No, not really. Although I highly suggest you should probably avoid revenge, because it will just make more problems later on when you exact said revenge(unless the person is totally level headed about it, which they probably won't be). And if you just can't subdue yourself then a minor display of revenge would be best, not enough to upset them, but enough so they get an idea of the message you are trying to portray. Kinda like a stop toying with me/ don't do it again/ and, or stop being a dunce sort of message.

But revenge isn't wrong, it's just illadvised.

Depends on how badly someone hurt you. Revenge at least makes for entertainment for those not involved in it and its drama.

Revenge is always wrong, it never helps anything no matter how much you think it will.

Personally I'm for 'Eye for an eye, tooth for a teeth'.
If someone hits you, you have the right to hit them back. It's called justice. Obviously that's a basic example, I feel revenge is a necessity supposing someone has caused you pain. That being said, the distance you go to extract payback determines whether what you're doing is right or wrong.

If, for example, someone punched you, you could hit him back. That's fair. If he punched you, then you went and punched him as well as his younger brother. That's wrong. That's revenge gone too far. It's not just. So in contrast of my point, revenge is acceptable as long as it is fair and on a relatively low scale. It is unacceptable if revenge affects the lives of people who haven't done anything wrong.

There is always the option of forgiveness nonetheless.

I prefer vengeance because the definition of vengeance uses the word retribution. Revenge plays more into an eye for an eye which really is just violence begetting violence. If we all lived by the religious doctrine of eye for an eye there would be non stop religious wars so... wait...

Vengeance is defined as any punishment inflicted or retribution exacted for an injury or wrong.

Retribution is defined as any punishment that is considered to be morally right and fully deserved.

I think people can do so truly horrible things and still be forgiven so vengeance isn't always the best option, actually vengeance should be the exception here. It is best to try peaceful means first and punishment/violence as a last resort.

The two things I consider unforgivable in this life is rape and child molestation. I don't care what people do with such creatures. Skin 'em alive for all I care. Where's Esdeath?


Nice use of Hell Girl pic. Hell girl though isn't so much about revenge as it is envy, pride, etc. Some dealt with actual vengeance, and for that extracted vengeance, those people were willing to accept the price. Most though, their "vengeance" was an act of injured pride, envy, anger, etc... little actual vengeance.

The best book on the subject was The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. When broken and hurt, vengeance is often sought, but what measure of vengeance is considered just or equitable? And, as Haydee, the princess, had tried to explain, after vengeance is exacted, you often feel empty and as though the effort and means were never truly worth it.

Also, practically, vengeance rarely endears you to bystanders as does victimhood. (I despise those that allow themselves to be considered victims far more than I do those that exact vengeance though..)

In the end, vengeance is never really worth it, but the trip to hell is fun for some.

Personally, Nemesis is my goddess and sometimes lover. When angered, when I am filled with righteous fury, I will not stop until I make the angels weep.
