I don't think I agree with the 'eye for an eye' approach, besides being barbaric it just perpetuates violence, rather than lessen it.

Who would be responsible for retribution? The State or the people involved?

Well, humans are violent, malevolent, awful creatures. That being said, if someone were to hurt a person i truly cared about, and i was granted the opportunity to suck the life from them ounce by ounce, inch by painful inch, i would most certainly revel in its glory. No questions asked!

Yes, humans certainly have that potential, but not all are, most of the time.

If you were to do that to somebody, someone who loves them could think the same about you. It just perpetuates violence.

Human beings suck! They are without a doubt, the most awful creature on the planet. Nothing even comes close. You are probably right in your assumption that someone might think that of me, but i couldn't care less. I am all out of fucks to give in that department! I wouldn't go out to harm someone just because i could. But in the defense of someone special to me, i would stop at nothing to ensure that no harm would come to them.

Some human beings are great. :love: Others are despicable lowlifes...I've run into quite a few myself.

Ok, that's perfectly natural, but in a world where the cycle of violence is perpetuated then the odds of harm coming to your loved ones is increased, not the contrary.

Persons are, well at least can be, great. Humans, on the hand, are despicable, deplorable, utterly detestable creatures. Hence, my absolute hatred for them!

If you don't mind my saying so, I find your use of language interesting. You use 'them' instead of 'us', as if you want to distance yourself from the species. I'm a little surprised, to be honest.
