An eye for an eye would leave us all blind and toothless

"An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth" would leave us all blind and toothless

Reasons to agree

 

Reasons to disagree

  1. This sounds clever, but it is a bad argument. It would only harm the victims and perpetrator of eye-poking and teeth knocking. Foreseeable (no pun intended) it would leave the rest of us with better eye sight and teeth, as there would be great fear of harming others.

  2. If the purpose of an argument is to find truth, or to uncover the facts, it is less important to say something cutesy-cutesy and more important to state simple facts. We should dare to be boring.
