Cognitive Dissonance much

Loved this post on a forum. The final sentence made me smile.

"Since his dead is evil gone from the world now?"

From my perspective, with all the celebraions and the reveling in revenge. There is more evil than there was.

Perhaps he could be called evil, perhaps he was.
Perhaps we were fed information, and having no personal experince in the matter we concluded so.
Perhaps he should not of been killed, perhaps it is better he has been.
Perhaps it is a time for celebration, Perhaps it is a time for mourning.
Perhaps he was fighting in the name of freedom, Perhaps he has inspired many.
Perhaps revenge is just, Perhaps it is not.
Perhaps celebrating ones death, gives us a opportunity to see what we truly value.
Perhaps i am conflicted and confused, Perhaps i dont understand completly.
Perhaps i should entertain the thought my views could be wrong. merely for the sake of objectivity

Currently i have a severe case of cognitive dissonance

Not sure where my mind will settle on this, There are many perspectives, right or wrong really does not matter it is all too subjective. In my mind i imagine this thru 3 peoples eyes, One celebrating, one mourning and one trying to understand why the other 2 feel this way.
