Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Right
Karma wins all the time. Ever heard that? No? Well, it presupposes retribution for every harm done. It means the Mosaic Law of ‘an eye for an eye’ can never go wrong. But an eye for an eye makes the world go blind and if the world goes blind what happen? We all go blind; we all lose!
Two wrongs do not make a right. Even a wrong that is provoked enough to be justified, on deeper reflection, loses all conviction. Anger generally indicates a loss of self-control. As such, it is not all wrongs that should be requited. The wronged one may be soothed if he knows that defeat in some situations is glorious. A wrong done by a person gives a sense of Pyrrhic victory, while the wrong done in response gives a sense of hollow victory. Two wrongs that don’t make a right presupposes that whenever evil is paid with evil more evil is birthed into the world and that’s why evil is never the best way to pay back evil.
