    people are rather mediocre these days, it is quite hard to work up a good hate....

    Who do you hate? Who are the right people to hate? Are they categories of people?

    Here is an example. In combat, having compassion for the enemy makes you more dead better.... You need a good hate, to channel into battle... Right or wrong. It is what needs to be....

    It's not necessary to hate in combat. It is not necessary to kill with hatred. Police kill in the line of duty to protect others from a criminal with a weapon. They can kill for the motivation of protecting others.

    No its not, however from experience, I can tell you, it helps. And anything that helps make one more less dead better, good.

    Hate is unnecessary but it is common human experience.

    this does not mean much to me... Someone rapes your child, how do you NOT hate this person?

    I hate Onions. I want the entire Allium genus to go extinct.

    Is that a choice? I don;t think so. It's caused by my parents making me eat them when I was a kid even though they are the worst tasting thing ever put on this Earth.

    My hatred was both natural and taught. It is a natural byproduct of my experience and knowledge of onions being inherently evil and sent to this Earth by Satan to destroy our moral fiber.
