(1) Description of the pattern

Equivalent exchange by way of exact behavior. There is no need to "be the better person" because you will be the only one. Doing unto others the same as has been done unto you is true balance.

(2) Why the pattern is good (i.e. bad)

This pattern upholds the running behavior that seems to underline a lot of society. The idea of "Returning the Favor" has evolved and resides in the shadows along with most hidden agendas (see hidden agendas). By keeping a "laser pointer" on the simplicity of what it is in any form, eye for an eye can never truly loose it's muster.
