Vengeance is how righteous people are seduced to evil

Because vengeance dovetails perfectly with justice

When a just person sees injustice being done

They are filled with anger and will seek to stop it if they can

It is right to fight injustice

And It is right want evil to be punished

But border between the nations of good and evil isn’t a fence

But a mountain range

Wild, Confusing and Dangerous

In the struggle to overcome evil

We find that our righteous anger has become malice

That the measure of justice has overflowed

And our principled joy has become the suffering of our enemy

The victory of evil is not the destruction of the innocent

But the destruction of innocence

Whereby the impulse to do good is corrupted

Into the impulse to do harm
