First off, I'd like to keep with tradition and thank shilpa0691 for initiating this debate. Good Luck.
_______________________________________________________________________________

1. I believe my opponent is taking this quote out of context. It only means that one shouldn't be looking to get revenge.... that one should be willing to forgive and forget.
2. This quote is true and important in two main ways...
a) Mutually assured destruction- when we look at the globe in it's current nuclear state, what is it that keeps China and/or Russia from blowing the United States off of the face of the earth? The fact that if they try, the US would in turn attack them with it's own nuclear arsenals. Now, this is important, because it shows how this quote shows the ability of a deterrence in the fact that all parties would end up dead (blind).
b) Personal Issues- there is a major quote that basically says that if one seeks revenge, one should dig two graves. One for the person who offended you in such a way that you would want to get them back, and one for you. Revenge is detrimental to society, and is a major reason the quote in question is so popular.
3. I reserve the right to clarify and explain in further arguments.

Conclusion- As my opponent stated, our freedom was gained not through peace sittings, but through force. I agree, but it was not in retaliation, it was in revolution. This is why it is obvious that "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" is a good and relevant quote that more people should follow.

Thank you.

Well.... I really don't have anything to say. Either my opponent wasn't able to get to their computer on time or my arguments were unbeatable.

And, yet again, my opponent has failed to answer any arguments...
It's obvious that my arguments stand.
It's obvious my arguments are good.
It's obvious who the winner is.

Vote for me.
