    Sad, but unfortunately true. I, however, agree with Gandhi... an eye for an eye will leave the whole world blind.

    Every culture defines its own justice. There is no 'right' answer to the question of how to respond to evil. Just as there is no answer as to why men to evil to one another. Still yet, an eye for an eye does not always imply evil to be done to evil.
