At some point in each of our lives, somebody has done wrong to us. We have all wanted to retaliate, despite often being told that revenge is bad. One definition of revenge is “The action of inflicting hurt or harm on someone for a wrong suffered at their hands.” We have all heard the cliché “two wrongs don’t make a right”, but is this really the smartest policy for approaching things? What if nobody sought revenge against anyone else? That would essentially mean a world in which all of the bad people just beat up on the good people while the good people just sat there and took it. At some point, people need to know when to fight back and seek justice against those who have wronged them.
I don’t think revenge is always the best action to take, but there are certainly some situations where it should be used. The United States sought revenge against Osama Bin Laden after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, and the end result was a successful victory against terrorism. According to the Bible, God himself often used revenge to strike down his enemies. Again, inflicting hurt or harm against someone is never good on its own, but when it results in more positives than negatives I think it is worth it. With all of the corruption we face in the world today, revenge needs to be taken against evil if the good want to have any hope of surviving. Justice is always a cause worth fighting for.
