A man's hatred is
always concentrated
upon that, which
makes him
conscious
of his bad qualities.

 -- Carl Gustav Jung

 

 

 People hate
those who
make them
feel their own
inferiority.


   

Earl of 
Chesterfield

 
(1694-1773)

Love, friendship,
respect, do not
unite
people
as much as
a common hatred
for something.

What is objectionable,
what is dangerous,

about
extremist
is not
that they are extreme,
but that they are
intolerant.

 

The evil is not what they say about their cause,
but what they say about their opponents.

Julius Caesar 

Beware the leader who bangs the drum of war
in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor.
For patriotism is indeed a double- edged sword.
It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows
the mind. And when the drums of war have reached
a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and
the mind has closed, the leader will have no rights
of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused
with fear and up all of their rights to the leader
and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what
I have done. And I am Julius Caesar."  

Attributed to Caesar by some, but disputed by others. See  this and this.
Nevertheless the content may be right whether Caesar said it or not.

 

 

"I passionately hate the idea of being with it; I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time."  

Race hate isn't human nature; race hate is the abandonment of human nature."

Unity and self-sacrifice, of themselves, even when fostered by the most noble means, produce a facility for hating. Even when men league themselves mightily together to promote tolerance and peace on earth, they are likely to be violently intolerant toward those not of a like mind.

 

Whence come these hatreds...? They are an expression of a desperate effort to suppress an awareness of our inadequacy, worthlessness, guilt and other shortcomings of the self. Self-contempt is here transmuted into hatred of others- and there is a most determined and persistent effort to mask this switch.

ERIC HOFFER

 Passionate hatred can give
 meaning and purpose to
an empty life

We are unified both
by hating in common
and by being hated
in
common.

We do not usually look for allies when we love. Indeed, we often look on those who love with us as rivals and trespassers. But we always look for allies when we hate.

 

 

 

  Much that passes as idealism is disguised hatred
or disguised love of power.

Few people can be happy unless they hate some
other person, nation, or
creed.
