    Movable Type Enterprise must have moved and didn't tell anyone.

    Hate comes from viewing people as different from you, and you have no desire to find out why, because you're scared that it will shake your beliefs that you've built up over the years.

    Interestingly enough, the people who are the most homophobic are generally the ones that are the deepest closeted.

    Must suck to be so self hating.

    Yes. There is self-hating associated with being gay. That's why it's so important for a gay person to see a counselor who is accepting of homosexuality.

    That puts the Keeton lawsuit in some perspective.

    Hate comes from Fear.

    Yes, that is so true. It also comes from feelings of helplessness and hopelessness and feelings of inferiority.

    Um...sometimes hate comes from being fucked over. Sometimes there's very good reason for hate.

    But I think your refering to unjustifyable hatred for people who have done you no wrong - people who you may not have ever had any interaction with.

    That's a weird and primitive hate.

    But one technique for promoting hate, is for an isolated society or culture to be absolutely abusive to it's own people. A very hard Spartan society. That promotes absolute fear of all people that are different. 'Cause if your own treat you so badly, the it stands to reason that peoples who are different will certainly abuse you to a whole new level.

    The corner-stone of militaristic soceities.

    Try out the Op link again, folks. Hopefully now, it'll work.
