Is revenge another way to reverse the game of survival of the fittest? Or to undo the roll of history’s dice? How many of us have individually, in our personal life been able to let go the desire for vengeance? Not many, I am sure. If we ever did let go, was it because we were helpless or because we were strong?

I wish people understood the “because we were strong” bit.

    Sameer insecurity and inferiority that is not faced, is denied, also becomes displaced as false strength It is the biggest maya jaal. True strength could do without revenge.

Acceptance of any situation which is contrary to ones own belief doesn’t come easy or naturally to human beings. Once the muscle of acceptance can be strengthened, need for vengeance will subside. Today we retaliate as that seems the more impactful…..hurt the other to assuage your own.

    Retaliate for history? For centuries ago? Crazy thinking. Instead of dealing with own issues. Always scapegoat

    They carry hatred and victimhood just under the skin. Nothing has taught them to ‘accept’. We are where America was in early 1900s.

    Thida sa historic difference hai but i get your point. Par anti Black racism has a strong social justice angle versis white supremacist fight. Here it is complicated by the once outsider becoming the conquering ruler and then a has been when yet another conquest happened. Except that the newest ruler made sure to build a poisoned chalice that leaks into us till today

    Kiranjeet, I guess it does not come by frequently so yes, I guess. Not at all wise but the rush it gives perhaps is satisfying if one is willing to overlook the guilt and silence the soft inner voice (for some it is non-existent)

    S Susan Deborah I guess that too

    But rising above that base feeling is going against the grain, I suppose and that’s what makes us human!
