Hatred: An Acquired Taste

Like with strong beer, hatred is an acquired taste.  From the earliest years people need and thrive on loving and luminous environments.  Such is necessary for cultivating and appreciating liberty and the need for mutual respect.  But in every corner of the world, there are those who acquire a taste for hatred. Once the taste is acquired people no longer are at home without it and require a dense surrounding atmosphere heavy with its lethal fragrance.  This tendency towards atmospheric hegemony is an important characteristic of hatred.  It cares nothing for sharing, but seeks to dominate and conquer.  The management of this psychological poison becomes a major task of all enlightened civilizations. Though hatred's source ultimately resides in envy, the essential nascence of this emotion is still a mystery and its originating process in no way clearly understood.
