Hate is brought on by jealousy, a feeling of losing the grip on something we believe to be ours. When acted upon swiftly, jealousy may become a crime of passion.
Hate is a defense mechanism that hides our fears of not understanding something, of change, of shame. Ones actions can lash out in bullying, sulking or spite.
Hate is pride, believing that oneself is somehow more important than another. Actions taken will belittle, be condescending or inconsiderate.
Hate is arrogance. An egotism that can bring about separatism, war and holocaust.
Hate is an intolerance that embeds itself in the psyche losing rational thought. This is what we see in our leaders when they refuse to work together for the good of the people. It is what brings about bigotry. It is what births injustice.
It is what takes our freedom from us.
