Question - “Is hate a stronger emotion than love?”
My Answer - I would like to say “No” but…really I have to say “Yes”.
Let’s face it. If love was the stronger emotion there would not be so much war and genocide in the world.
- Genuine love does not cause us to blow peoples brains out, drop bombs on them or fire bomb villages.
- Hate can transcend generations even centuries but love dies with us.
- Humans can hate people they have never seen so much they would kill or be killed for it. Few people have ever been credited with being capable of loving anyone they have never seen enough to die for.
I do, however, believe there are more people in the world motivated by love than there are people motivated by hate, thankfully. I also believe this is the only reason we haven’t completely destroyed ourselves…as yet. But, as the world population continues to rise and the worlds resources continue to deplete, I’m sure it is only a matter of time before hatred strikes one final blow.
