Why is the Hate word so prevalent?

    Why is the Hate word so prevalent?

    In most cases, Hate is the wrong word as it is being used in the subject. People can hate, as in dislike the acts of people, especially people in power. But the word Hate has connotations of a desire to do something physical as Hate is rage, and rage is emotional as in Road Rage.

    It sends the wrong message, and maybe it is intended to be inflammatory, which is wrong. We have enough violence in the country and the world, so we don't need this word to be used to ignite more of it.

    "Hate - what is it good for, absolutely nothing." It is not prevalent around me. And I live in a very diverse world. Yes I did steal that line from "War" by Edwin Starr. The word is not allowed in my house it is rated right up there with the "F" word. We do have one exception: in playing chess if your opponent takes your queen you can say one time "I hate you". We really do not need the "H" word any more than the "N" word. But sometimes there is real angst in circumstances. And hate is the fleeting negative emotion that follows. We cannot just say "you cannot have that emotion" we do not own another's emotions they do.
    But in our "zen" we see the emotion, feel the emotion, own the emotion and do with it as we please. That is why the game of saying it once is allowed - it allows for recognition, release and moving on with control. But nobody here gets to "hate peas". We learn that that is different and we speak it "we do not care for peas".
    Notice I had to dance around the question because in my world "hate" and the use of the word is not "prevalent". Love is. I also think that when we here the word hate it is like the word love. There are 100 different meanings. I hate questions that start off the assumption of a premise that i do not agree with. "Why is the word hate used as much as it is?" Is really what the question asks. The provoking makes one shy from answering the question.

      And yet you answered the ?. I should have phrased the ?, Why do people use the word Hate, when they really mean Dislike.
      Or they Hate how something was done, which is a less emotional connotation of the word Hate.
