Does The Saying 'You Get What You Give' Justify Violence?


Side Score: 2


Side Score: 4

Yes. Makes people who intend to victimize others consider the consequences before they take an action. Unpunished insolence encourages it. I don't believe in vengeance but delivering a message.

Does The Saying 'You Get What You Give' Justify Violence?


Sure. I ask no quarter, and I give no quarter. If somebody is violent towards me, I'm gonna be violent towards them.

I hope not, because it equates to an infinite cycle of violence. The problem with justifying violence is that there's always a way to justify it, if you're determined enough and unafraid to bend logic. Believe me, the Germans in WW2 thought they were the good guys.

I've never come across that proverb associated with the link to retaliatory violence which you suggest it is.

I am aware of a very close maxim which is;-''you ONLY get what you give''which is meant to stress that, there is a definite association with the effort one puts in with the rewards one receives.

Side: No
