Hate is a Weapon
Hate is a weapon. A weapon that’s being used on millions of innocent people. Its a horrible weapon, it works to stir up bigotries and hatred lying in the hearts of others, it inflames prejudices, bigotry and racism. It can and is destroying lives. Its a method of battery, it works to hurt others. Its a method of coercion. Its a method of invoking Fear. Its a protected method of battery, its all-too-easy to hate anon, to not have the slightest bit of accountability for it.
Its been marketized and monitized. Corrupt Silicon Valley CEOs are making money off of it, sheltering their doing so. They are completely indifferent to the effects of it, they do not care in the slightest about the Harm, they want to foster and spread it. They are cowards and bullies, who have invested themselves, made a product of and found their ideology, in hatred.
I have observed how bigotries are being inflamed online, and what they seek out are hidden prejudices. They bring them out into the open, online, hidden via anon, it ignites them in others, and makes them spread. There are destroyers out there, who actually find it in their “interest” to do this.
News is a weapon too important to leave to people who can’t even figure out how to run a profitable business. – Chris Tolles, CEO, Topix
Awareness of the rise and spread of hate as a weapon is so needed, much more needs to be done, to halt it.
Awareness is needed of the millions of innocents it is victimizing, who are being condemned, over and over again. The laws are not in their favor, and this blip in Justice, has been too long sheltered.
Until that time, the vast rise and spread of hate, can serve to remind of powerful cosmic lessons.
Hate is a dead thing. Who of you would be a tomb?
It is true, that the hater is more damaged by the hatred than the hated, that all the hated has to do, is to reject that hate coming their way, understand that it belongs to the hater, not them. It will make the hated stronger, those who aren’t destroyed by it.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. – Martin Luther King Jr.
I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain. – James Baldwin
Most hatred is based on fear, one way or another. Yeah. I wrapped myself in anger, with a dash of hate, and at the bottom of it all was an icy center of pure terror. - Laurell K. Hamilton
Hate isn’t healthy, it damages the hater more than the one who’s hated! – Eric Jerome Dickey
Hatred is Like a Long, Dark Shadow
Hatred is like a long, dark shadow. Not even the person it falls upon knows where it comes from, in most cases. It is like a two-edged sword. When you cut the other person, you cut yourself. The more violently you hack at the other person, the more violently you hack at yourself. It can often be fatal. But it is not easy to dispose of… It is very dangerous. Once it has taken root in your heart, hatred is the most difficult think in the world to shake off. - Haruki Murakami
Hate is a Dead Thing
Hate is a dead thing. Who of you would be a tomb? – Khalil Gibran
