    The World has so much hate toward each other.People who hate other people usually don't like themselves.Want other people to feel their pain but WHY? This act is being taught to the younger generations of the human race.WHY?There are people who are naturally nice people.These are the people who are most hated.WHY? Is it jealousy? This is a form of bullying.People who talk about what a person wears,eat or even talking to another person.A hated person can't walk in a store,work or down the street without being hated.Why?People who choose to live away from the rest of the world people who have  FELT the hate from other people.The Bible says"Love thy neighbor as thy self" Is the world that far gone.We all bleed red.So what is the trouble.Prayer should be back in school. All faiths are being honor.Pledge of Allegiance because people from other countries are choosing to live in United States.So where is the hate from?The question of why has yet to be answer by anyone person who inflicts pain on other people.

      People fear what they don't understand.

    Poignant questions.

    The idea that people are basically good does not ring true. When children are born do we have to teach them how to be bad?

    People have to be taught how to be good starting from a very early age. We however have become so sophisticated, so educated we no longer feel the need to convey the ideas of godliness. Just like a fairytale book we have decided we no longer need spiritual teachings so we remove the 10 Commandments from our society in the United States.

    Now having declared ourselves good people we only have to deal with a large number of divorce rates, road rage, gender bias, racial hatred etc.

      The fairytale book method of morality is atavistic and authoritarian. 

      What's needed is deep questioning and reflection on what exactly we, as human beings, are actually doing.  Why is our society organized the way it is?  Why are homosexuality and abortion seen by some as more important than war, torture, and poverty?

      The human race needs a new paradigm.

    I wish I had an answer to this question. I don't know why people hate others or feel the need to pick on or belittle someone. I sort of believe that people who do that feel they are lacking in some way. They aren't fully comfortable with themselves or in some deep dark corner of their mind think they in someway don't measure up. It seems like the only way some people can feel good about themselves is to make someone else feel bad. I truly don't think someone who is confident and  happy in their life would feel the need to tear someone else down. I don't know though. I guess some people really are just mean and cruel for no reason. Either way I try to avoid the cruel or toxic people when I can. If I happen to have to interact with them I try to remember the only person I can control is me. I will try to be kind to them and if I can't be kind I will be quiet. I will never be cruel. Even when someone is cruel to me. It can be hard, but don't let what others say get to you. Your worth doesn't depend on what anyone else says, thinks or does. If someone is being mean that is their problem and a reflection on them not you. Live your life the way you want and pretty soon you will be surrounded by supportive like minded people. Once you feel secure and confident in your life all those mean bullying people start to seem sad instead of frightening.

      Some people evidently need somebody to look down on in order to feel better about themselves.

    We also can't discount all the mental disorders that exist out there. Changes in brain chemistry probably skews one's sense of reality.
