    Which is true. A-holes are A-holes.

    But think of a situation like this. You hate a person. You want revenge. But out of the blue he / she does something nice to you.

    You feel like dropping the revenge plan?

That pleasure being simple revenge, of course.

    But I guess it would depend on why I was tortured. If he just did it because he liked doing it, then I'd kill him. And although it wouldn't fix everything or be the ultimate solution, I could at least begin the healing process. Until the end of my days, I wouldn't have an ounce of regret over doing it. I don't value the life of someone who would torture an innocent person for 16 years. I would feel like I had done exactly what needed to be done.
    An honest post.
    And I very much think along the same line.

    It would be hypocritical to think any other way.

    He simply assumed he would.
    Ask him whether he really does have any experience of carrying out his plan ever in the past.

    I don't think so.

    It depends on how nice she does.

    Maybe. If he has tortured me by orders, I probably wouldn't kill him. If he has done some torture just for the fun of it (and is still doing it to others), I would consider killing. On the other hand, can't say really because 16 years being tortured changes a person a lot. Actually, when I think about being tortured for 16 years I would probably kill him.

    It's hard to say what that would do to me psychologically. The impulse for vengence would be there. If a loaded gun was placed in my hand while they were in the same room immediately following my torture, I might. I think it would be wrong, but I could pull the trigger. But if it's a matter of planning, I don't think I would. Especially because he or she would just have been acting as an agent of the state. I would be more likely to blame the system and join a resistance movement, I think.

    Killing government agents could be considered fighting against the system.
