Thich Naht Hanh and Tombstone

I saw this on Facebook today.  I love Thich Naht Hanh and I think he is generally right about this.  However, I also agree with Alfred Pennyworth who said, "Some men just want to watch the world burn."

I think this great scene from Tombstone says it best:

Wyatt Earp: What makes a man like Ringo, Doc? What makes him do the things he does? 

Doc Holliday: A man like Ringo has got a great big hole, right in the middle of him. He can never kill enough, or steal enough, or inflict enough pain to ever fill it. 

Wyatt Earp: What does he need?

Doc Holliday: Revenge. 

Wyatt Earp: For what? 

Doc Holliday: Bein' born.
