Why are people hateful for no reason?


I've noticed now on Hubpages, instead of just straight up answering a question, people will attack other people in their answer. For example, they start criticizing religious people when the question has nothing to do with religion. It's like their answer is defensive for some reason, even when the question isn't geared that way at all. Why do people feel the need to always judge other groups that are different than themselves and spread hate? You don't have to attack others in order to express your opinion.

    Thanks for you input, this is a great answer. It's true, we all need to learn more about each other, instead of making blanket judgements, which only divides us further. At the end of the day, we're all human beings with thoughts, feelings and needs.

    Great answer, thanks! I agree, debate is the bedrock for a good democracy. Too bad it seems, our democracy is failing. People don't seem to want to think beyond their own perspective.

    It's true, I guess some people do have their reasons and since I don't know what they personally have gone through, I don't understand why they would act this way. Great input!

    Thanks for your answer, maturity is definitely a factor. I'm not perfect all the time when discussing things, but I always try to state my opinion in non-attacking type way, and take what they have to say into consideration. We're all adults here.

    Good answer and interesting point, I never considered that. It would explain why some people are very defensive of their thoughts/opinions. People shouldn't view discussions as a win or lose situation, it's not about that. It's an exchange of ideas.

    Good answer, it's true...it's much easier to stay stuck in our own mind frame, instead of listening to other opinions and having to actually think about it. People are definitely lazy about thinking, in general. Being hateful is the easy road.

    Old Empressario, totally agree. Many people are threatened when others intelligently present an alternative view to their "logic."
