    The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth.Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. So it goes. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

    It's a cold world with way too many vindictive people. Abusers, sociopaths, psychopaths and psychological manipulators, they're all a dime a dozen. People who love deception and only tell the truth if it serves some purpose of benefiting themselves. Call me cynical but for the most part a good majority of people only care about their self involved interests. Looking for anything to rationalize those self involved interests and desires.

    Us as humans are often concerned about a shade of nail or a color of a suit when there are thousands of kids wasting away to death, each and every day.

    It seems to be a fact of life that human beings cannot continue to do wrong without eventually reaching for some rationalization to clothe their acts in the garments of righteousness. -Martin Luther King Jr.

    People overlook their own misdeeds(thinking their victim deserved them rationalization) and project their own bad traits onto their enemy. These people only see things from their prejudice or biased point of view. Their only looking others from a very small window. Theirs much more then what meets the eye.

    It's easy to judge or hate from the outside looking in based on someone's actions. It's a lot harder to really get an understanding of what a person is about through their mind frame and experiences. For example you could dislike previous actions they made when that person was a minor, and really despise or hate them when they really didn't mean much harm. People are constantly changing and growing. It comes down to the fact that hate drives the desire for revenge.

    It is by its promise of a sense of power that evil often attracts the weak.

    "Insanity in individuals is something rare - but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule." For example look at gangs, terrorist organizations, etc.

    Hate only breeds more hate. Hate is too great of a burden to bear.
