I am not a hateful person; I can get along with almost everyone. No, that doesn’t mean that I never have a disagreement with anyone. It simply means that, ultimately, I won’t actively seek out conflicts.
In today’s society, it seems we can argue about almost anything, but the most common catalyst for fights is often some form of discrimination. Personally, I find it rather foolish. How can something as trivial as a difference in skin color be seen as inherently negative, when it merely results from the natural variation in our genes? Similarly, why should someone’s religious beliefs be a cause for animosity? The reasons behind such discrimination are often arbitrary and senseless.
Perhaps these two words, “arbitrary” and “senseless,” lie at the heart of all the hatred. It’s not just the lack of reason that baffles me, but more importantly, the random nature of it. These flimsy justifications can easily be refuted by numerous reasons why they make no sense. And yet, each and every one of us will, at some point, utter something that is disliked or disapproved of. However, discrimination is deliberate. So, when we consider how haphazard the reasons for discrimination often are, we must ask ourselves: Is it truly about these reasons, or is it simply a means to propagate hatred?
To grasp this concept more easily, let’s take a moment to think about internet trolls. They roam the online world, actively seeking out fights, aiming to hurt others, and finding pleasure in annoying people. Much like the reasons behind discrimination, their targets and motivations are often arbitrary. Yet, it all boils down to one common thread—the desire to spread hatred.
We can extend this analysis to a larger scale, observing how many politicians actually seek to create war and conflict worldwide, rather than prevent them. But what purpose does this serve? The issue lies in the fact that those who propagate hatred refuse to acknowledge their role in spreading it. Hatred has somehow become a normalized part of our lives, but whether people will recognize and confront this truth remains to be seen, and only time will reveal the answer.
Old version (The Silly Hatred)
I am not a hateful person, I can get along with almost everyone.
No, that does not mean that I never have a fight about something with anyone, it just means that in the end, I won’t go around searching fights.
In today’s society we can have a fight about almost anything, but still, the most probably reason to have fights are forms of discrimination.
I think it is really silly myself, like a different skin colour is anything bad, while it just is because our genes are different from person to person, or that someone is of a different religion, even though that is just a belief…
The reasons are all pretty random and nonsensical most of the time…
And maybe those 2 words are the exact problem behind all the hatred, those unseen words, that it just makes no sense, but more importantly, that it is random.
Those reasons are easily opposed by enough reasons why it makes no sense, yet, every one of us will at least once or twice, or in some cases a massive amount more, say something that is not liked.
Discrimination is however targeted, and when we look at how random those reasons are, is it really because of those reasons, or rather to spread hatred?
Think about internet trolls for a moment as an easy way to understand.
Internet trolls go around the internet looking for fights, to hurt others, and to plainly fill their lives by a fun they get by annoying others.
Like the reasons of discrimination, their reasons and targets are pretty random, yet once again it comes back to one thing…
The attempt to spread hatred.
We could continue doing this upwards to massive scale, like the fact how many politicians are actually searching to create war and conflict around the world, instead of preventing, yet, what is the use of doing so?
The problem about these problems are all the same, those who spread the hatred, they don’t want to face the fact they spread hatred.
Hatred has somehow become a regular part of our lives, but if people will realise and recognise this ever, only time will tell…
