The power of hatred

There really is power in hatred.

Hatred isn’t just a mindset, it’s an emotional response as well. Hatred leads to resentment and anger, both of which have been linked to physical and psychological health problems and even to early death. Perhaps that’s nature’s way of limiting the impact of our species’ most destructive individuals. They die a little sooner than the rest of us.

Hatred doesn’t only have the power to kill the haters though. It has the power to kill the hated too. Haters become so locked in their own sad, hate-filled worldview they come to believe all sorts of atrocities are acceptable.

Take the recent case of the neo-nazi white supremacist who attacked an innocent man with a machete just because of the colour of his skin. And as you read the article pay special attention to the phrase…

“…radicalized on line”

That’s why we work so hard to counter Britain First’s lies.

  1. I’m glad you guys are constantly on BF’s case and exposing their bullshit. It’s unfortunate that it affects impressionable and gullible people, but the more articles and posts you make that gets shared, we can only hope that’ll reach out to those who are being radicalised by far right groups before another incident like this occurs.

    Indeed, hatred is very powerful and it only begets even more hatred and vendettas are carried through generations; bigotry, racism, prejudicism etc are all taught. No one is born into the world full of hate.
