After months, even years, of suffering the insidious, unlawful and deceitful actions of the Democrat party, with the enthusiastic assistance of our intelligence agencies to work right along with them, it makes sense that Republicans and Conservatives would like to exact revenge on those groups and make them pay dearly. If we could find a way to punish the media, we’d make sure they experienced the consequences of their lies and omissions, too.
Wanting to get revenge is part of the human condition. We want to punish those who willingly, even enthusiastically, have damaged the rule of law, have tarnished the reputation of the United States domestically and with the world. We want them to suffer, to feel what it’s like to be abused and deceived, because . . . well, because it would seem to re-balance the scales of justice.
And yet, seeking revenge also has its downsides, not only for those who are in our sights, but for ourselves.
