Of course, because that is the only type of person who hates, isn't it?.
I agree with the OP to an extent, but and may be this is just me thinking the way I do because my work for years has involved the very negative aspect of Human behaviour, but I feel that just because you love, does not mean the world should or does love you. I would love nothing more than people to just live their lives, let others be and that is it, unfortunately the world is not like that.
As much as the above quote is just as filled with hate as the stereotypical hate filled person described and presented to us in the mainstream, it is typical of how Humans generally are a mixed bag of emotions and to not hate, perhaps, is more destructive than to hate, even if that hate is hating people who hate, I think it is generally impossible to not hate, or at least not dislike.
There is a lot of hate in the world, but also there is a lot of love which there must be in order to maintain balance. However, I think you find that we all hate something and to try and control people's hate would itself create more hate and to what right do we have to dictate to others as to what they feel?
So I agree that the world would be a greater place if we all loved and held hands and could go to areas without fear of being victims of crime or go to countries without risk of being kidnapped and beheaded. Unfortunately, you either accept that as a Human emotion hate is all around as much as love is, or you take the risk of living care free and hoping everyone you encounter also live just as care free. However, I'd rather be as cynical as I am and not take the risk and be safe.
