The Use of Resentment

I wonder if I ought to have hard feelings for those who have used me. There are no humans without hard feelings when such things take place. How could the case be otherwise? But is one who is able to act, to do something about the matter to show their higher character and turn a cheek? Does that make a situation more just? It seems that in most cases the answer is no, but certain institutions, still reveling in the fragments that remain of the Roman empire, make use of the result.

One is not somehow decent and principled who does nothing.
