    ONLY the bad people would be blind. For they would be the only people that would seek revenge on those that did them wrong. But metaphorically.......aren't they the ones that are already 'blind' anyway? *shrugs* Just something to think about.

    the concept of "an eye for an eye" would only make the whole world blind if every single person was injured by another person and desired revenge. as long as the majority people do not injure others, and those who do injure others do not injure very many, the world will not be entirely blind. perhaps half blind,

    I think it would calm some people down. They would think twice before doing something to someone else. Besides don't you think the whole world is blind already?

    I think the whole world is pretty much blind already.
