Now I am no expert and could therefore get this very wrong.

When you contemplate the meaning of hate and look around the world we all live in you might wonder as to what causes hate it the first place.

We are not born with it.

It has to be acquired in order to dislike intensely or passionately some thing or person, to feel extreme aversion for or extreme hostility toward something or someone.

The shock-waves from the missile that destroyed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine on Thursday are still reverberating around the world.

So it might be a good time to address the subject as it seems that I HATE THAT it is spreading thanks to our new digital era, of remote bombs, mobile phones, 24hr television, and verbal diarrhea by unknown experts on all sides

The paradox is that Islam historically was relatively tolerant… anti-semitism runs deep in some Muslim countries today, but, for most of history, Muslims were more tolerant of Jews than Christians were.

”The West has no moral high ground on the issue of religious intolerance?

Why do some people feel this way?  What is to be done about it?

I have no idea. I see connections between everything, past, present, and future all at once.

For the most part, people create the emotional world in which they live.

All cultures have categories to distinguish people into “us and them” by ethnicity, race, religion, or nationality: One group denies the humanity of the other group. Extremists drive the groups apart.

Why don’t we allow our religious systems and rituals to shift and develop/evolve to suit the modern man and thinking?

All men are in a kind of “life lottery”, where we really don’t know how we will die.

The first, and most disturbing  fact, is that human beings, like few other species, are pervasively aggressive, violent and murderous to each other.

When we share common bonds of belief and value with others, we are less likely to be aggressive or violent to others in our world.

Hateful beliefs such as racism, Anti- semitism and misogyny allow whole groups to be dehumanized.

Too many of us have become desensitized to violent acts, not realizing the true effects of a bullet passing through a human body.

Without being connected to others, we care less for their welfare. The major predators of humans are other humans.

And I can only honestly offer the following answer:

The past does not exist, neither does the future hate in its pure form comes from present day cruelty and torture.

The inequalities of the world must be addressed. (See previous posts)
