Hatred is taught and learned.

Hatred is taught and learned. Hating others simply for who they are, how they act, or what they believe is insanity. That form of hatred has no benefits whatsoever. Bigotry has NO place in the world today. NONE! It fucking SICKENS me! SICKENS ME!

And more violence and invasions and more oppression and repression will NOT solve it. Keeping the warmongers in power who fight for western hegemony will solve NOTHING but WILL create more problems. We are constantly repeating history because these ultimate asshats continually fight to stay in power and belittle and marginalize those who seek true and lasting peace. Their vast sums of money and positions of power for decades ensure that stranglehold doesn't loosen.

In addition, leaders of Muslim sects that foster violence are still living in the Dark Ages. The Christian Dark Ages were violent and brutal to "non-believers" and those who threatened the power held by the Church of Rome. Current mentalities of these terror groups aren't much above those of slugs and vermin. They foster ignorance and hatred. And we have similar mentalities among religious and political parties here in the US. The vast majority no longer resort to such violent means but the mindset still exists. That mindset is a DISEASE!

So, whether it's leaders of political parties, leaders of religion, leaders of terror groups, leaders of hate groups, etc. It doesn't matter. They are all in power through means of fear and taking advantage of those who live in poverty or willful ignorance.

It is THAT mindset that must be eradicated. THAT is the real tyranny in the world today. Those who lead by fear.
There's only one rule to live by in life...it's very simple and cuts across all races, creed, beliefs, etc.

Don't be a dick!

Or, in other words, don't be an asshole!

Or, maybe better put, do unto others and you would have them do unto you.

Don't let hatred become a focus. What's the fucking point? Hatred won't solve a goddamn thing. Never has, never will. It only leads to more and more problems and more and more hatred.
