  • I have a theory

    People always talk about how this or that political ideology "spreads hatred," but I think the flip side of compulsive hatred, trying to compel people to like certain people or things, is much more insidious. And in fact, one always accompanies the other. When one promotes a love of democracy, one also promotes a hatred of distinction. When one promotes love of one's own country, one also promotes hatred of foreigners. When one promotes love of riches, one promotes hatred, however veiled, of the poor. "Universal brotherhood" naturally implies suspicion of those who do not sing along with the group.
