An eye for an eye?

“I and the public know

What all schoolchildren learn,

Those to whom evil is done

Do evil in return.”

– W. H. Auden

“An eye for an eye, and soon the whole world is blind.” – Mahatma Gandhi.

….

I, for one, am quite confused!  Maybe the linguists have ground breaking interpretation for this. But then whats’ with, “do evil in return?”. That’d lead to the whole world going blind … choice is mine … or your’s.
