Understanding; not accepting

I sometimes understand those who initiate force- or want to- while recognizing they have no right to do so.

I am only human and have had the same perverse desires crop up myself.

I admit I was wrong when I wanted to initiate force- why is it so hard for some people to accept the same?

    Some people recognize that temptation, accept it, and move on.

    Others fight that temptation and let it overwhelm them with guilt and anger.

    A few give in.
