If you hate…

Posted on July 26, 2011


If you hate, if you let your hate tell you what to do, then you have become one of the people our parents taught us to fear.

If you arm yourself for military action against an enemy, you declare yourself an enemy—against the public peace.

If finally the innocent die at your hands, the purity of what you believe, whatever purity it may have had, dies with them.

By hating and letting hate shape who you are, you have become the only argument anyone ever needs to make against your cause.

Hatred has made you an enemy of the people, because hatred itself is an enemy of the people.
