Vengeance is the act of revenge. It is about retaliation and retribution to a perceived wrongdoing by a group or an individual. It is based on the concept of an eye for an eye. Thus it is actually a wish to make things equal and even. It is injurious as it is a very powerful feeling and can make people lose or misplace their values and understanding. Thus it rarely has any constructive goal. Vengeance is not considered lawful and people are advised to stay away from it as it destroys the avenger as well as the victim.

Some people mistake vengeance with justice but they are distinctly different things and are as different from each other like chalk from cheese. Vengeance is an ego trip that blinds man to reason and truth.
