Description

Gandhi famously said that an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind. Is the idea of "retaliation" based in equivalency, or has it warped into something more sinister? In this episode of A Different Lens, we explore retaliation against criminals, cyberbullies and whistleblowers to determine if the concept of an eye for an eye still has a place in our changing world.
