What's the point behind knowingly being hateful to others? There's no point to it, I feel like I'd rather be loved then feared.

And when I'm gone, all that fear you wrought, all that hatred you brought down others, it's all gonna be remembered, people are just gonna knowingly mock you, which is another cycle of hatred that just continues endlessly.

Unless you can totaly rewire the human brain...the answer is no.

Naive. To rid the world of hate you'd have to rid the world of passion, which would also mean ridding it of love. No, we will never be able to have our cake and eat it too.

Nope; too many racist, sexist, misogynist etc people out there and the far right isn't any better.

Peace is a lie
There is only passion
Through passion I gain strength
Through strength I gain victory
Through victory my chains are broken
The force shall set me free

Will we ever win against something intangible?

That's because you're a genuinely good person.

I agree. I want people to love, be positive, and help each other.

Hate creates conflict. Conflict brings about evolution. Progress = good. Therefore, hate = good.

I applaud the sentiment, I really do. There's nothing useful or moral about hate. There's nothing you can do on a systemic societal level to get rid of it though because the burden of good and evil is something that must be voluntarily adopted by each individual. There will always be people out their who shirk that responsibility, and everyone will fail at some point to live up to this ideal.

Yes. Atheists are pretty pugnacious in their "Beliefs".

This is an idealized Machiavellian perspective. It's tacitly false, as well. It's easily demonstrably wrong with all the science, medical, and technology breakthroughs which were done to help others (charitable work) or to improve the quality of life of as many people as possible.


How old you? This is relevant: usually, your type of perspective, people grow out of it.

Explain that.

Explain that. It's still relieving suffering, and honestly, the guy could've invested in ANYTHING, it didn't have to be those specific things.

Deep down, it may look like nothing but profit, but he invested into THOSE things for a reason.

Well, then that wouldn't be charitable work, now would it? So why should I explain your strawman scenario? thumb up

Hell no. You use google.

And after eliminating some of your edgelord ignorance, post back into the thread your findings with an apology.

It's not my job to educate you with things that are literally common knowledge. In fact, I think you're even pretending to ignore lots of the charitable work (the "changing the world for the betterment of humanity" kind of work) that's quite publicly acknowledged and happening today, because you'd rather be an edgelord.



Why do you insist on wallowing in ignorance or at least making you look like you are wallowing in ignorance? It's not "cool" to be appear to be ignorant.

Hate only can touch a person for the moment of time. Don't fear it instead lead people from wrong and you will be a part of something far greater than yourselves.
