Harsh viewpoints are not conducive to spiritual growth. Even if they are ‘right’ or ‘justified’, a spiritual seeker cannot afford them. One has to give up the luxury of revenge or enjoying that ‘justice has to be done’ when a supposed murderer is executed. One cannot violate basic spiritual principles without paying a price. The spiritual seeker sees through the illusions and therefore gives up the role of judge and jury. Nobody goes ‘scot-free’, as people indignantly protest.
