Justice v. Vengeance – A Work in Progress?


What is the difference between justice and vengeance?

Does it really matter?

Won’t vengeance redress the karmic balance anyway?

Surely an eye for an eye or tit-for-tat = reciprocity?

Won’t that suffice?

What does vengeance bring us?

(It must bring something or we wouldn’t still practice it so extensively)

What problems does it cause?

Do justice and vengeance ‘feel’ the same?

Does justice offer us something different to that which vengeance offers, or is it much the same?

How often do we dress up vengeance in a ‘justice’ costume?

Does it matter?

What kind of a lens do we need to use so that we can tell the difference between justice and vengeance?
