What assumption. I'm not assuming anything. The example is that
someone is harming, not going to harm. Revenge wouldn't play in that
situation. I tend to believe that instinct would take over.

Fair enough. I don't expect people to always agree. Especially since
culture plays a huge role in belief systems, and we do have quite a few
different cultures represented here. :) You never know when someone is
going to show you a perspective you have never seen, and it will change
your viewpoints. I'm always open to that. :)

oppression: for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent
that will reach unto himself.
