Revenge

Uploaded by Bag puss on Jan 17, 2006

Revenge cannot be explained through psychological analysis, revenge is a human instinct. It is traced back to the days of the cavemen, an eye for an eye, and a limb for a limb. Revenge is a reoccurring natural event that takes place when the jurisdiction of a government cannot act quick enough to eliminate emotion from justice.


Justice is essentially revenge without the excess emotions involved. Justice is such an impersonal process that most if not all emotions are removed, making it justice and not revenge. “Revenge is a sort of savage justice,” Webster’s dictionary defines the word “savage” as not domesticated or under human control. Since justice is a human idea does that not mean that revenge is primal? Revenge is a primal instinct, native to man and only to be controlled by an invention of his.


Revenge can often be seen in nature, in animals, in the state of nature. Before man had government he was free. Free from guidelines, free from rules, but bound by fear of his life, in fear of revenge. When man gave up some freedoms in return of protection by a government, protection from revenge is included in this. In a way, government removes all emotion and primal instincts from decisions. It leaves the decision and jurisdiction as a plain and simple answer. No intricacies of entangled emotions are involved.
