Of all human emotions, hate is the only one that accomplishes nothing but destruction.

There are many sources of information on the internet, but some commentaries from newspaper editors and writers tend to become "colored" by the emotion of hate. Written editorials need to be rational and not biased, and facts must be presented as plainly as possible, giving the reader due freedom to make his own conclusions.

Writers need to be responsible for the facts that they present. Investigative reporters do that, journalists are required to do it for CREDIBILITY. One cannot write effectively if there are questions all over the place left unanswered. That would be just a maze
of emotions, of HATE.

Hate is the ugliest human emotion I have ever encountered. It is full of force, but is is usually BLIND. It is also deaf. Hate cannot hear the other side of the argument because its ears are full of the burning smoke of unbridled anger.

Hate also causes mental disorientation.
A person so filled with it in his brain, has no room for logic to set in.
He gets irrational and sometimes delusional, thinking only of WINNING, of HIS views, and of HIS world.

A person consumed by hate will do everything and at all costs to give vent to his emotions, and rant and rave
in a rage out of proportion to the situation at hand. It is the most uncontrollable emotion of man.

Notice that a person filled with hate rarely accomplishes his purpose in life. He gets so preoccupied with destruction, he never sees the hope and the promise of a better tomorrow. He has none of those.

Hate equals self-destruction. That fact is proven and has always been the
course of life. It breeds animosity in families and communities, and can destroy a nation. There is no need for its reason, nor honor, it just needs to destroy.

Sadly, it is usually the person who hates whose life gets destroyed. It is like a corrosive substance, an acid, that eats up everything it comes in contact with. It is such a strong emotion, one can "feel" it even without actual presence from its source.

The most devastating effect of hate is that it causes advanced AGING. It will increase the blood pressure, upset the stomach, result in sleep loss or sleep disturbance, and yes, it causes a lot of wrinkles. Hate is useless because the object of the hate is not affected by it, nor does he suffer from it. The hater does.

Sometimes, mothers hate can plant that "seed" in her children, which to survive, need to hate back to maintain their sanity.

You identified the root of many evils. Unfortunately, all political figures seem to be an object of intense hate by some segments of the opposition, except in oppressive dictatorships where free speech is not tolerated. Indeed, leaders need our prayers for wisdom to do the right thing - a much better channel for emotional energy & less destructive.
