Have we had enough of the Two Minutes Hate?

Two Minutes Hate, from George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, is a daily period in which Party members of the society of Oceania must watch a film depicting the Party's enemies (notably Emmanuel Goldstein and his followers) and express their hatred for them.

Or should we stretch this out into an entire Hate Week?

Hate Week is an event in George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, designed to increase the hatred for the current enemy of the Party, as much as possible, whichever of the two opposing superstates that may be.

Or

Should we transmute our hatred into something more positive and meaningful?

Maybe we should pray for the Granger, pray for all the people of the Daily Paul, pray for peace.

Try this: Express your love and gratitude to someone nearby, someone you take for granted, someone that you would be devastated if that person were to disappear from the face of this earth.

You choose where you place your focus. Do you understand that? No one but you. Not anonymous ghosts hiding behind anonymous names on an internet message board.

Choose wisely, because every choice you make is karma.

He's the man.
