    But most everyone seems to focus on fear and hatred for the last decade or so.

    People just hate the benefits that others get, not the ones they get.

    Hate benefits no one. Which is why you should never go there.

    That is why religions concentrate on such goofiness as saying grace at meals, expressing gratitude in the face of disaster and the like.

    An attitude of love your neighbor and gratitude for what you do have, rather than envy, spite and covetousness is healthy. Doing what is easy, the desire to live beyond what you earn, the wanting what is your neighbors, and the attitude of ingratitude is morally and psychically corrosive.

    One should be thankful for what one has, even if all you have is stone soup. It keeps you in a healthy place.
