Have to disagree. People don't want to hate...they fear. People hate what they fear. Anything that contradicts the safe world they know is cause to be afraid and since lots of people don't understand fear and how to deal with it, it becomes hate.
Although children that are taught hate, I think they do start with learned-hate and then it becomes fear because what would happen if everything they had been taught all their lives turns out to be wrong? That is a very large fear that most people in their position can not deal with.
Hate is easier to live with for some people than admitting they were wrong.
But I don't want to derail this thread...
Life is about the journey and not the destination,
so what better way to know life
than to wander all the roads and paths set before you.
