Should revenge be legalized?

Essay

◆ Pros
 I believe that revenge should be legalized for the three following reasons.
 The first reason is that it is only reasonable for victims to take revenge, considering the feelings of them and their family members. It is just not right that victims cannot do anything. For example, how would you feel if your children were killed by someone and you couldn’t do anything?
 The second reason is that it will be a great deterrent to bullying. Bullying has been a serious problem and many people have committed suicide because of it. Bullies pick on weak ones because they know they will not be revenged. Taking these things into consideration, it can be said that it will be a great deterrent to bullying if revenge is publicly and lawfully admitted.
 The third reason is that it is unreasonable for jurors and executors whom the crimes don’t concern to punish criminals. If there is someone who has the right to punish criminals, it must and should be the victims or victims’ family members, not people who have nothing to do with the crimes.
 For the aforementioned three reasons, I believe that revenge should be legalized.

◆ Cons
 I do not believe that revenge should be legalized for the three following reasons.
 The first reason is that revenge is just transitory. Even if you did it, the sense of achievement would soon vanish and you would feel vacant. On top of that, even if you revenge, the damage that has been done to you will never be recovered.
 The second reason is that the best revenge is to live happily. Although there may be people who try to make you unhappy, try to bully you, the best revenge for them is that you live happily notwithstanding their bullying.
 The third reason is that nobody has the right to punish others. There is no such a thing as right and wrong. People want to define things which are convenient for them as right and things which are inconvenient for them as wrong. People want to punish the criminals who cause the inconvenience. People want to take revenge, which is convenient for them. That is so selfish, almost as selfish as criminals.
 For the aforementioned three reasons, I do not believe that revenge should be legalized.

メモ

◆ トピック:仇討は合法化されるべきか?

例によって、賛成派と反対派を書きました。

賛成派では、
「被害者やその家族の気持ちを考えると、仇討は正当」
「いじめの抑止力になる」
「何の関係もない陪審員や執行人が犯罪者を裁くのは間違っている」
というのを、メインに、書いてみました。

反論としては、
「仇討なんてしても、誰もうかばれないのでは?」
「仇討できない、心の優しい人がいじめの対象になるので、無意味では?」
「彼らは、国家に認められた、人を裁く権利をもつものでは?」
などが考えられます。

反対派では、
「仇討の達成感はすぐに消えてしまう」
「最高の復讐は、いじめをするような可哀そうな人に惑わされず、幸せに生きる事」
「誰にも他人を罰する権利はない」
というのを、メインに、書いてみました。

反論としては、
「それでも、加害者は被害者に好き勝手出来るのに、被害者は何も出来ないなんて、あまりにも、不公平では?」
「それが出来ればいいが、出来ない場合はどうか?」
「自分の子供が殺されても、そんな事が言ってられるか?」
などが考えられます。
