If one hates someone or something that means they have an intense dislike towards them. Sometimes this hate can be so large it can be an influence for mass destruction. We have learned, or even have seen examples of hate turning into something bigger throughout our history. These examples include the multiple wars, terrorist’s attacks, and genocides. Many of these incidents were drove by hate, and did not end well. What drives this hate? How can people turn on one another with just feeling hate towards them? The Holocaust being one of the many genocides in our history was indeed influenced by an intense dislike. That intense dislike was towards certain types of people it ended up taking multiple lives.
We use hate to cover a large range of feelings and for different situations for example a child who "hates" vegetables or their homework, to a leader of a country who tries to expunge everyone of a certain religion or ethnicity. Hate can be associated with a wide range of emotions from fear to anger and involves the most primitive parts of the brain and the parts that develop latest in human evolution. Hate is the fuel behind the greatest disasters in the world. Take for example the Holocaust, that was all caused because of bigotry. So many people lost their lives that the holocaust has gone down as one of the worse attempts of genocide. Hate can bring out the absolute worst in a person as shown in the Holocaust. In the holocaust it also shows how hate can be a similar to a disease with how ordinary people were turn into blood-thirsty murderers. Most times hate is illogical and needs absolutely no proof of "why" it just is. Sometimes all hate needs is just a small passageway and it can break into a person and bring out the worst. Have you ever noticed how a person's slightest movements and mannerisms can cause you to just go crazy? That’s a perfect example of how hate is illogical. The person has not done a thing to you but you still feel as if they have and this tiny bit of hate can cause you to later look for little reasons to hate the person even more. Some believe the hate isn't inherently bad be used in the capacity of good as well as evil. Hate can actually be a

Why is hate critical to understand? Why is it crucial that societies teach their youth the evil of hate crimes? Teaching how hate grows is a good learning experience for children. With this information, they’ll grow up and will be able to react to hate crimes more justly. Essentially, hate crimes can be categorized into sections.

Love is virtually a universal emotion. Almost everyone experiences being in love or being loved, and the same thing could be said about hatred. In The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne discusses the similarities between love and hate. He observes that people who are in love and those who hate both feel empty with the absence of their subject of attention. At the end of his book he reflects, “It is a curious subject of observation and inquiry, whether hatred and love be not the same thing at bottom” (236). Hawthorne is referring to the similarities developing between loving and hateful relationships in his story. He thinks that since both require a lot of emotional investment and cause you to focus on a single person, love and hate are at their cores the same.
The focus of hatred in the two-minute hate can be seen today as well. Hate is an emotion that everyone experiences. In 1984, two minutes is taken every day to focus hate on Emmanuel
Hate plays a role in the life of many people today leading the argument whether hate is acceptable in everyday life. Hate allows nothing but pain and suffering to continue on and feuds to continue through time. Hate is a lifestyle, lived by the people of today's society that don't have the courage to stand up for what is right. Hate allows for people to persecute and discriminate without much reason or cause allowing for these people to not change their ideas and adapt to the world ahead. Hate is not acceptable and should not be tolerated, but in today's world this is a diminishing view as ideas of segregation of people by religion, race, ethnicity, culture and many other factors is very common. The argument should
If one does not let go of hatred, then it will cloud one’s heart judgement and actions and for some, the want for vengeance that comes with it may consume one’s morality. With regards to the effects of hatred, the protagonist in Guy de Maupassant's “Old Milon” demonstrates the quality of spitefulness with his actions. After the death of his father and son, Old Milon starts to feel resentment towards the Uhlan soldiers as a whole, regardless of the individual and expiate their deaths by killing Uhlan soldiers. Before his first murder, Old Milon was consumed by his hatred of the Prussian soldiers and as a result, he did not take into account that the soldiers he targeted were essentially innocent, Old Milon was able to unwaveringly and violently swing his scythe without hesitation. In addition to his clouded judgement,
Throughtout The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas, the theme hate is clearly exhibited by multiple characters. As described by oxforddictionaries.com, hate is to “ have a strong aversion to (something).” The main protagonist in The Count of Monte Cristo, Edmond Dantes, was immensly wronged by four of his peers and was sentenced to waste his life away in the Chateau d’If. Moreover Haydee, Dantes’ associate, was sold into slavery by one of the quintets who betrayed Dantes. In due course, Dantes and Haydee alike dedicate their entire lives to punish and take revenge upon those who caused them to suffer.
Hatred becomes action not due to apathy or indifference, but when a person wishes to act. When people are willing to kill themselves for a cause it is not due to a whim or immature persecution complex, there must be much stronger factors involved. People willing to go this far... and to maintain that mentality for periods of time to organize an attack and carry it out have got more of a grudge than a mere shallow hatred of success or jealousy.
In the workplace or business area of life, there is also a lot of hate going on. Employees tend to get a lot of hate in their attitudes when they don’t receive a promotion or if they are given negative feedback from a boss or superior. They don’t seem to want to change to get where they want to be. Ex-employees tend to hate their ex-boss when they are let go. It is rare to find someone that has been let go not have hateful feelings toward the company or boss.
No matter what part of the world we live in, there is a time in life we either faced hate or will face hate. We can be hated by an old friend, stranger or even a family. Hate is a feeling within and can bring out a horrible outcome. The word hate is to “feel intense or passionate dislike for someone.” We all have our own reasons of hating others but three common reasons why people hate is because of misunderstanding, jealousy, and because someone else is doing it.
Love and hate are both very powerful emotions. The abundance one can feel inside when feeling them can be overwhelming at times. I think everyone can relate to the feeling when you love someone so much you would do anything and everything for them. We can also understand that feeling when you can’t even stand the thought of someone being in the same room of you. When we look at what emotion is more powerful, I think hate is stronger than love. The reason being is that love can quickly turn to hate, but hate doesn’t change to love very fast, if at all. I think Othello is a great example of this. His love for his wife, turned to hate so fast because he thought she was cheating on him. He murdered his wife in pure cold blood which shows how hate can be such a powerful emotion that it can actually cause someone to want to commit murder. The feeling of love and hate can change someone, and they both can be very powerful. However, I think that hate is an emotion unlike no other in which the feeling is very stable, in the since that it is very hard to change someone’s mind about you when they hate you.
While many know who they hate and why, those that are hated may not know what it is that caused said hatred. This is because people are quick to judge and then hate because of their conclusion they have drawn without questioning their outcome through another perspective. Many do not reconsider why they hate that person, they just know that they do. People need to learn to reconsider their beliefs of a person because what they may believe can change from the perspectives of another. Hatred and grudges could all be resolved if people were willing to look at it from a different perspective
