Rant - no rave at all this time

Vindictiveness.

It seems society is becoming more and more vindictive.

I'm becoming more and more saddened and disillusioned by the world.

Worthy rant.

"Be the change you want to see in the world." -- Vindictiveness is a kind of pettiness, hurting another because you can is just wrong. Sadly, I think it's a case where instead of "paying it forward", people are "debting it forward" - taking the hurt they've experienced and passing it on.

Sadly few ever ask themselves whether or not what they are doing is fair - proportional and just. There's a culture of entitlement where because one CAN hurt another, it is often assumed that they should.
