From Dr. S. M. Sapatnekar:

Re: Vindictiveness doesn’t pay, study finds (March 30): While the observations in the study are interesting, interpretation is difficult to generalize. While negative tit-for-tat may looked down in lower and middle level, what about the top brass? In the Power game, it is the unpredictabilty and potential to cause harm stand out as qualities to acquire and sustain power. Unprovoked assaults and retaliation disproportionatly larger than provocation inspires awe.common man hates it initially, yet surrenders.
