Nothing grows.

I’m sure you’ve all heard the expression “scorched Earth” to describe when someone goes on a tear to punish people for either real or imagined transgressions. The problem with that is when you do it, not even what you want to happen afterward will happen. You’re making it impossible for any good to ever come out of it. Consider it part of the law of unintended consequences. I personally can’t imagine being so angry at someone or a group of someones that I would go “scorched Earth” to exact revenge, but then, I don’t take anything (well, most things) that seriously.
