Playing Their Hate

Updated on September 1, 2016

Innings

"Hmmmm..." I go as if I'm
actually considering the
stupid idea, waiting for
ten pairs of eyes to hit me.

"I suppose we could..."
I say with a nod.

The stupid idea was now
voted down because I had
appeared to support it.

I knew the most efficacious way
to get what I wanted was to 'support' the opposing position.

As long as the other board members didn't catch on to what I was doing
I'd always get my way.

This is the power of hate.

The Power of Hate

People may walk a mile to get the person they love a present. But people will walk a mile in the snow, barefoot, if they know they will hurt the person they hate.

There is nothing more powerful that hate.

Oh, please yourself waxing lyrical about love, but know this; hate is so all encompassing that once it catches you, every reaction is based on that feeling. Often, you can't control yourself.

You may be shocked by the words that come out of your mouth, by the behaviour you have just displayed, it was all unconscious, all provoked by hate.

When people hate you they do things that are not in their interest because they can't help themselves. They can't park their hate long enough to have rational thought. Hate rules.

Learning the Trick


Before I learned the trick I would speak myself hoarse. I would present all sorts
of authorities to prove why I was right. This never really worked. I might get
one or two working brains to at least consider my proposals, but it was a gross
waste of time.

People do not vote for, they vote against.
People do not support, they attack.

Although you will get the occasional person with a fully operational brain, the
majority is made up of those who, in a past life, shouted Give us Barabbas!

How it Works

I often try an honest assessment,
but when I pick up that my listeners
are only listening so that they can
attack, I become more devious.

I learn how to say;

"Well, most people will say that Tom is ..... "

and put out a few absolutely true points, hoping someone may say,
"Yeah, I'm most people," or something that suggests that they
agree with the point.

When I don't get a response, or when I see them bristle, I, almost apologetically
say, "But I find Tom to be..." and say the exact opposite of 'most people'.

(If you haven't noticed I've taken both sides of the argument)

This invariably works to push the listeners into the 'Most People' category
as anything I'm for they have to be against.

Cutting His Own Throat

Some years ago, I joined a
group which was led by a
rather shabby intellect who
spent his time lauding
it over others as if he had
some special dispensation.

Privately I knew he was an
adulterous drunk who so
believed his own hype that
he assumed he could get
away with anything.

He was a total disaster, and I wanted him gone. However, I knew that everyone was more
against me than anything else in the world. (Yeah, I have that ability).

I decided that instead of dealing with him as he deserved, I would become a booster.
I would always have something great to say about him.

It didn't take long for everyone to begin to question his ability and decide to replace him.
But I continued to support him.

When his replacement arrived I found a lot of flaws, which, of course, kept the
majority fighting tooth and nail to defend the Replacement.

As anything I am for, they must be against, the guy I was supporting turned against me
and supported his replacement!

Yes!!!
This is the Power of Hate!

      It is here. People have turned into zombies. Years ago, having spent/wasted so much money on what would become margerine and vegetable oil, (these were to be substitutes for petroleum) they pushed the 'health' benefits of these products. Butter was scorned. They moved on to attacking coconut oil, which we make and eat here.

      The younger switched, the older didn't. Now, suddenly, coconut oil is the great elixir and the other oils have to be removed from the shelves within 2 1/2 years.

      How do people who see 99 year old people moving around with strength, turn to vegetable oil?

      Makes you wonder what's coming, doesn't it?

      Well, when a television or radio or typewriter was at your command, when a telephone could ring in an empty room, and humans were in control of themselves. Yes. Much better.

      My cellphone is on silent...permanently. It lives in a far corner. I look at it after my first cup of coffee. Maybe I don't return the calls. It goes in my bag. I may feel it vibrate, I may not.

      Most people are zombies. They can be talking to the Queen of England, their cell phone rings, they answer. Zombies.

      Right now I am using a computer with windows 8 which takes control of my desktop and I have to fight it for control. It is 1984.

      Things were so much better back in the day before all of this technology!

      I've written about it many times. I was involved in a case in which they got the cell phone data...going back years...every keystroke, every conversation. Cell phones.

      Much less Internet.

      I've proven it, and anyone can prove it. Send a Gmail using a 'keyword', i.e. autism...see how all of a sudden these ads are all over the place.

      I have found that people generally assume that because they are not rich or famous they are safe. Like everything else in life, they never think it can happen to them. Unfortunately it does, all the time. Very sad.

      I sort of backed off of Hubpages when they did this idiotic 'flag' thing, so that the worst people would run about and flag others to keep themselves on page 1.

      It seems to me, that you and I may be the only ones aware of what really happens to our information..

      When I saw your comments about my question re placing photos online, I just had to look at your profile and see what you write and how you write it. I really like your style! I was already following you, but it's been awhile since I've read much of anybody's work. Have all I can do to keep editing and working on my own!

      Thanks. I wondered if anyone read this...It always works. Sometimes it's even too easy.

      This is absolutely brilliant! I once had a similar situation of a different ilk. Someone I worked with kept secretly reporting things I did to my boss. I finally caught on, and started feeding her the information I wanted him to hear. That ended it! Loved the way you formatted this hub also. Good job.
