Hate All, Kill All
For me, the pieces of the puzzle are falling into place; the puzzle being an understanding of how the world works. The picture they are forming may not make much sense to anyone else; and may even seem insane.
One major piece of the puzzle is Hatred, which is sometimes so strong in my life I can hardly stand it. It seems to be a message screaming at me, but the message never made much sense. What meaning could hatred have?
I has finally dawned on me that its meaning is crucial (note the similarity between crucial and the cross). Basic Christian theology is profound here, if perverse. The Romans hated the Jews, and destroyed the Jewish state. But Christianity ended up being a Roman religion – after a very complicated transition that most Christians don’t want to think about.
Another major piece of the puzzle is negative being, or the reversal of values. For people in this state, bad is good, stupid is wise, and hate is love. And there is no way they can detect this simple switch has happened.
The result is a state analogous to the Christian ascension into heaven where believers are born anew, and are forgiven of their sins. In its Protestant form, the results are more complicated, and produced our affluent world, where we live in a heaven on earth – and a hell on earth at the same time.
These people (and myself, when I am feeling like them) hate everything. And this feeling is an integral part of who they are, it is not optional, something that happens only part of the time, depending on the circumstances; it is a fundamental, constant attitude.
Another piece of the puzzle is unawareness, the opposite of awareness. These people are not aware of anything – but think they are aware of everything.
Beginning to get the picture? Like it?
For awhile I wondered how hatred could kill, but then I wondered how I could have wondered about anything so obvious. Hatred says “Drop dead!” And people who are hated do just that, when the message is universal (from everyone).
“How do they die?” you might ask. There is no simple answer to this question, it depends on the circumstances. But in many cases they simply fade into the woodwork, as defined here. This may seem like an innocuous form of being, but it is really becoming negative, a state where people can commit the worst atrocities – and think nothing of it.
However, other things can also happen. In response to hatred, some groups of people can use this to define themselves. I am sure, for example the Taliban feels this way. Our hatred of them is what defines them, and is the strongest weapon they have. In American history, our hatred of the British (which was a long time forming, and was never complete) defined what being an American was.
Another response to hatred is mental illness. If the person doing the hating is an authority figure (a parent, for example) this puts the child in a difficult situation. The result can be psychosomatic illness of many kinds, which are very common – but which are usually unacknowledged.
They are unaware – and are strongly opposed to being aware.
