Why, oh why, do people HATE so readily? If somebody just physically or emotionally abused you, some hatred is understandable. I'm talking about things people hate when they simply needn't. Examples - 'Bad' language, bad grammar/spelling, text-speak "i h8 u", pro/anti abortionists, right/left wingers, sports/sports teams, 'druggies', TV programmes, TV's & TS's, babies, teenagers, adults, being criticised/praised, animals,,,,. Basically, you name it and you can be sure somebody, somewhere HATES it. Well, apart from the abuses I mentioned at the beginning, I don't hate anything or anybody. There are things I don't like but I don't dwell on them for more than a few seconds. I don't even hate the haters. I LOVE human diversity. Are these myriad hatreds normal human condition that I'm too laid-back/mentally ill to comprehend, or do the (irrational) haters need to chill? Your thoughts, please.
