Dhamma practise is not harming onself and not harming another. Refer to MN 61. Kind regards.
There is always an official executioner. If you try to take his place, It is like trying to be a master carpenter and cutting wood. If you try to cut wood like a master carpenter, you will only hurt your hand.
