...and soon the whole world is blind".

If someone wrongs you, with malice or without realising, just once or repeatedly,  in public or in private, how should you respond?

Is it fair to retaliate?

If you perceive the perpetrator to be superior to you in strategic warfare (economically, intelectually or emotionally), maybe even enjoy power play, is it wise to try? 

Is it worth it?

If, in fact, you are not agressive / reactive (by nature or by choice), or do not crave the spoils of victory, what do you do?

And if you don't do, regardless of "comparative power" or nature, will you be labelled a coward?

Swallow the injury, heal thewounds and move on, you say?

What is "moving on", anyway?
