An Eye For The Way We Treat People

25 Apr

An eye for an eye. The famous reason that lies behind most revenge to be conducted. It may seems dark, but it’s actually the antecendent of ‘Treat people the way you want to be treated’. Only the latter sounds a lot nicer.

People do revenge means something bad happened to them first. It’s our reaction to treat other person the same way we were treated. But of course, revenge isn’t a must. And only wise people choose not to do so. While treating other people the way we want to be treated takes initiative and courage. Initiative to do the good deeds first. Courage to forget the past and move on to the present life we have.

If we treat people good, then the eye we will get after is another good thing. If we treat people bad, then the eye we will get after is possibly another bad things. Why possibly? Because there is still a chance that the other hand uses his/her courage to forget the way we treated him/her and takes an initiative to do the good thing back to us instead. Or, he/she do the bad thing to us as been told by ‘An eye for an eye’.

If the other people do not the eye-thingy back to us, believe me, there will always be party that will generously do it back to us. The universe for example. Or in tangible way, the court house. Have you ever think why people suffer death penalty? Mostly because they vanish other people’s life, I don’t know the case that doesn’t. But do you really think they deserve to die?

‘An eye for an eye’ is really a bad term. Only optimistic people can change it into a good one. Thus, the court sentences someone to die means the court kills the man itself. In other word, the court applies the ‘an eye for an eye’ terms, means the court is also the bad one here.

Because I think, no human can sentence other human to die, not even human’s law. It’s God, the one who has the only right to tell when is human’s time is up this life. What can human do to the bad person is to give a lifetime punishment. Or, to lend a hand for the eye that person had thrown in his/her life.

With this post, I hereby sign my support to demolish any death penalty in all court houses in the world. Because no person deserves to die, unless God tells to.

I gratefully thank John Grisham for the meaningful writing in The Chamber that inspired me to write this entry.

    maksudnya Hukuman mati ya, nad ?

    jadi inget komik “Death Note”… kalo mau membunuh orang si Light tinggal nulis nama orang di death note

    setiap orang punya hak hidup.
    jika orang yang telah mengambil hak hidup orang lain (membunuh), pantaskah yang membunuh juga diambil hak hidupnya ?
    (kok, jadi nanya ya…hehe)

    “kalau kita hidup dengan cara mata dibayar mata, maka seluruh dunia akan buta”
