Bin Laden and the cycle of revenge

May 04, 2011

"We got him, justice is done." Really?

We seem to be overjoyed by the idea that Osama bin Laden's death is some sort of compensation for all the suffering and lives he annihilated.

I suppose it's human nature that revenge is a joy. But now our revenge must be avenged.

Perhaps our joy should just be geared to the fact that at least bin Laden will no longer plan additional harm.
