Call him a breathing corpse.”~~
I believe that hatred is a desire in oneself to bring harm or strong disliking to another, and is driven by fear and lack of power. Whether it is shown by acts of racism or blinding rage, hate is everywhere. It creates who we are as people and houses the society we live in. All humans were born with the instinct and the ability to hate. There are millions of good people in this world, but since hate is an instinct that we use it in our everyday life, we sometimes tend to overlook it. A woman, who has been raped by a person she doesn’t even know, obviously does not love her rapists but has strong, harsh feelings towards the rapists. I agree with documentary Beyond Hate showing that hatred is worldwide, and that many religious use hate in the name of God, but I disagree with racism being effective to resolve problems.
No matter where you look in the world, there are always people hating on others because of differences in ethnicity, or even because they live five blocks in the wrong direction. Hatred is worldwide and it’s something we cannot change. Everyday people lose their lives in gang fights, wars, and other acts of violence because of mankind hating mankind. In the documentary, Elie Wiesel says, “He who hates his brother, initially hates himself.” If we cannot love our brothers we cannot love ourselves. The documentary also tells about the life of a young black male who lives amongst gangs. He tells the story about his gang-life, and says hatred is much like a faucet; you can turn it off and on. Hatred is not always at its highest, like all things it takes certain things to fall into place before it reaches its highest effectiveness. Adolf Hitler, leader and commander of the Nazi Army during World War II, started with a very small amount of hate for the Jewish people and his hate eventually lead to the death of over six-million innocent people.
“Try to understand men. If you understand each other you will be kind to each other.Knowing a man well never leads to hate and almost always leads to love.” ― John Steinbeck
