Negative Values: Hate

Hate is the embodiment of a huge amount of anger.  Love conquers hate.  “Violence begets violence,” according to Gandhi.  Hate can and many times does lead to violence.  I say, “Kindness begets kindness.”  I’m sure Gandhi would agree with me.  Hate must be treated with compassion, understanding and a long-term effort by all, especially those closest to the person who harbors this hate.

Hate—just like all the other negative values—must be singled out by all human entities, including film, media, schools, spiritual bodies, radio, television, and on and on.  Instead of our media covering all the details of crimes, isolate the value failures—such as hate—and solve the real issue, and not just the crime.  We must conquer hate!
