Confessions of a hater

Well,

... yes, I am a hater.

I am a hater of some ideas. Here is the beginning of a list.

I hate the idea that a (so-called) human "race" is superior to all others (so-called "races").

I hate the idea that a religion or faith or absence thereof is supposedly superior to all others - and stated as such by the believer.

I hate the idea that faith is anything but profoundly intimate and we can escape our responsibility in the full extent of the implications for our relationships with others.

Thus, I also hate the idea that a race or religion or absence thereof has the monopoly of martyrdom over all others.

I hate the idea that some groups would supposedly owe this or that to others.

I hate the idea that some groups would supposedly be more knowledgeable to teach this or that to others.

I hate the idea that pure reason only is suitable to rule our lives.

I hate the idea that our biased emotions only are suitable to give a meaning to our lives.

I hate the idea that there could be any legitimacy in gender battles or gender wars.

I hate the idea that a majority or groups can replace our individual rights with arbitrary entitlements for the groups they deem only suitable.

I hate the idea that some want us to believe - or force onto us - that we can delegate our individual responsibilities to the society or the state - including, but not limited to, taking care of ourselves and coping with OUR OWN past mistakes and fixing those BY AND FOR ourselves.

I hate the idea that anybody would feel owing me anything that I made clear I shared for free.

I hate the idea that society or the state supposedly owe anything to the individual I am.

I hate the idea that the individual I am supposedly owes anything to the society or the state.

I hate the idea that anybody would feel I owe them anything that I, myself, don't feel compelled to owe, as I can read the just laws - and I have NO problem to abide to laws, if they are JUST.

I hate the idea that someone else or any other group has claims to force a better morality than the one I made for myself in my heart and my brain over years and decades.

I hate the idea that someone else or any other group can claim that I am helpless before the education I received from my parents, good or bad.

I hate the idea that anybody who isn't from my family or relatives would feel in their rights to tell me about my flaws I should have fixed.

I hate the idea that anybody would feel in their rights to try force their views on the morality or life that I, and my family, have chosen to live by.

I REALLY HATE the idea that our natural human compassion for others cannot exist or isn't enough if it's not eventually delegated to, or enforced by, the state.

I hate the idea that we still waste so much time and energy in seeing people in friend or foe groups instead of debating the ideas we defend and the ideas we reject, and why.

I hate the idea that such ideas would be forcibly about intangible abstractions as an excuse for creating more groups, labels, and jars nonsense, instead of defending and protecting our individual freedoms.

I hate the idea that we keep losing focus or sight of what mutual respect, liberty, and peace really mean.

I hate the trendy idea for some that the Golden Rule itself doesn't mean that much - or "was borrowed from older texts, anyway" - and as such is only "relative" and always corruptible through language - "anyway".

Well, yes, it is: only if we do have the intent to corrupt it, indeed.

Now, who in their sane mind would find in any way defensible and legitimate the idea of "throwing the baby along with the water of the bath ... just because we can, after all"?

I hate this sort of GROSSLY DECEPTIVE SEMANTIC TRICK to debase the very rare and precious ideas that can be useful as moral absolutes for the individuals WHO CHOOSE SO.

To me this denotes something that I HATE EVEN MORE: THE HIDDEN AGENDA of denying TO ALL these so rare and useful absolutes for the individuals WHO HAVE CHOSEN THEM, ON THE FALSE PRETENSE THAT THOSE ARE RELATIVE FOR EVERYBODY - "ANYWAY".

Yes, I DO NOT BUY AND I HATE this ... pseudo-intellectual C R A P.

The deceivers can try again. They can try HARDER, against me, "anyway".

Their plans may work with the gross ignorant, or the reckless, or the irresponsible - but THAT WILL NEVER WORK AGAINST ME.

I am no genius but it never takes me very long to figure out BY WHOM and WHAT FOR our human intelligence is being INSULTED - that is, BY THE GROSSEST DEMAGOGUERY coming from THE HYPOCRITES WHO WANT TO RULE OVER EVERYBODY.

See?

Indeed, that is only the beginning of the list of ideas I do hate.

For, this is what I have SCRUTINY FOR:

THE IDEAS,

but certainly NOT their messengers only, as that would be TOO EASY, mind you.

That would be childish. That would be irresponsible.

The RIGHT or WRONG ideas - with lines drawn in the sands of History - THAT IS WHAT I STRIVE TO WATCH AS CLOSELY AS I CAN -

either to dearly DEFEND or to firmly REJECT.

Bear with me, and

Peace.

I don't hate!

It saves time which is precious in the fight for liberty!

Good for you.

Good for you.

As for me, I can't help but hate some ideas - those are the ideas I will restlessly keep denouncing AND FIGHTING AGAINST.

Because the harm or good among men eventually only comes from right or wrong ideas.

How do we make the difference? Very easy: LOOK at what the ideas make man do FOR OR AGAINST HUMANITY over time - this is where MEMORY comes into play, TOO.

Man is a thinking animal with memory.

Are we not?

Did you mean human ethnicity??? - because you said...

"I hate the idea that a human race is superior to all others."

We're all of the human race.

Unless you're talking about aliens and the idea that humans are superior to all other lifeforms.

Maybe that is what you meant.

But the term racist is mi-used. We're ALL members of the same human race.

But there are of course many different ethnicities.

So one who hates other ethnicities would be an ethnicicist, or a bigot. Not a racist.

A racist would hate all humans I guess.

Confession pour vous

Quelquefois je me reveille avec la haine que je ne comprends pas.

Je regrette que je ne sache pas ce qui me fait detester tant.

I also wish I never let my French slip because it takes me far too long when I try to respond to you in French and even then I am sure some of it is a bit off lol

This:

I hate the idea that a human race is superior to all others.

What other comparable race is there to judge the human race against?

Of course, I don't believe there are several human races

Of course, I don't believe there are several human races in the strict sense. We are not dogs or cows. There is only one human specie and the "races" some people refer to are in fact no more than what should be only called - with already a subjective stretch - as "ethnoreligious groups", with much abstract arbitrary from a sociological standpoint.

I only used the term ("race") that many people still use today with the abuse of language that - we like it or not - we are all vastly subjected to in our society. So that my point can speak TO ANYBODY and not only the minority of us who DO care about language usage accuracy.

The inaccurate term "race" is even in use in many official administrative, legal documents about individuals, for this country (and others') institutions.

Isn't it? THAT is something of a simple detail that I would change, if it were only for me.

Clarifying

Some people genuinely believe - or have been forced into believing, by deceivers among them - that they are "a chosen people", in some ethnoreligious group, and that they have a special status over other populations and systems of beliefs...

and THAT IS WRONG, in my opinion, because THIS IS NOT ONLY UNTRUE but also goes AGAINST any compassionate view for mankind as a whole.

More historic details here:

Also this DIRECTLY relates to:

"Thus, I also hate the idea that a race or religion or absence thereof has the monopoly of martyrdom over all others."

I believe there are ideas that we CAN and OUGHT TO rightfully hate and reject FOR ALL THE HARM, ATROCITIES THEY HAVE DONE ALREADY among populations and entire nations who have embraced them blindly thru their rulers and/or the peoples themselves.

As humans, we have memory. It is our human DUTY to use it.

Peace.

It's about what he hates and respects.

He's saying he sees you as less than an animal.

I hate that students and

I hate that students and learning are subsidized by the state.

I hate that love and marriage are regulated by a bureaucracy, solely for taxing purposes.

WOW...glad you got that off your chest.

I hate

bankers! I hate a lot of other crap too, but if the bankers were brought under the will of the people and free markets most of the other crap would sort it's self out.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

LOL.

LOL.

Well, I'm not sure I hate banking (or bankers), matter of fact... I mean, the falling in the sin of usury is mostly their problem, not mine, if I'm smart and careful enough to not depend on borrowing...

But, granted, I certainly HATE a very specific, criminal, disastrous idea of banking - CENTRAL BANKING, entirely based on FAKE money - even more disastrous and disgusting than plain old usury itself, since that one enslaves everybody in disguise, I wholeheartedly agree!

Great post

Each one of us should be able to relate to at least some of these 'hates', at least, I can. Thanks.

Thanks. I just realized what

Thanks. I just realized what a hater I am too. ;-)

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I see what you mean:

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I see what you mean:

Coincidentally, in fact I did consider for a moment using "dislike" instead. Turns out, I agree, for a few ideas "hate" is certainly a bit too strong, while for others it's definitely exactly how I feel.

Overall, I found "dislike" would have been too weak to express myself on all those on average; hence, my choice.

I'll leave it that way as it should remain as spontaneous as I felt writing it, I think.

I HATE corruption in our so called "justice" system

Shouldn't those two be as FAR APART from one another as possible? I also HATE someone that tries to take away my NATURAL right do defend myself or loved ones, while at the same time, hypocritically, they think it's okay for them to protect themselves. The "do as I say, not as I do" jerks. The complete example of them being out for themselves and not caring anything about who gets hurt or killed along the way. This goes for all those that CHICKEN HAWK politicians/legislators that try to ban guns. I'm definitely glad you didn't put "dislike".

"Dislike" and "complacency" is the VERY REASON why America has not taken to the streets as other countries around the world have and said "ENOUGH".

Remember what Dr. Ben Carson said about "political correctness" and being afraid to say how you really feel?

Good post bro.
