    But I think what I hate the most can found in all, it's greed/ selfishness.

    I dislike all of those poll options but the ones I truly hate are:

    How everyone is out for themselves
    Corrupted Authorites
    Racism, Pejudice, Intolerance
    Violence and Crime
    The Media

    For me it is the ethnocentrism of most Christian Americans; mainly the Evanalist.

    They say we can reinvent the wheel; we are so caught in this damn capitalist "cluster-fuck".

    I do think we need some socialism interrogated into our society. In Germany they have both Capitalism and Socialism working hand in had; not like in China with both of them merged into "shot-gun marriage."

    With big companies like Wal-Mart that have increased the gap between the rich and the poor.
    * Made wages on the national poverty-level
    * Tied up our welfare
    * Sent jobs over seas.

    Superficiality. How people have to act certain ways in certain situations. How we always need to act upon what is socially acceptable. I would love for everyone to be themselves. Unique!

    THE MEDIA....it encompasses all of the other options (except for perhaps,taxes). I'm not targeting all the mediums like movies, music, video games etc. they do their purpose, they entertain us and may give us new ideas, such as how somebody feels about something, but normally people know it's from an individual's or a certain group's perspective, it's subjective.

    Mediums that are there to inform like newspaper and the news on the other hand.....are completely objective and state things down as factual and while it'd be a bit harsh to say all the news-type mediums are all negative, I'm referring mostly to the local news, the most common ones that everyone sees on channels, not the ones which you have to hunt down for, in order to find some positive aspects of the world.

    To cite examples, Michael Jackson, remember when the media focused on him being a pedophile? It affected people, hell you could hear children about the age of 5 insulting him and even adults, he had been through hell, literally, with an abusive father and false accusations, that had little to no evidence he perpetrated those crimes and in spite of that, the majority believed in the media and the media helped spread these rumours about him. What they didn't emphasise on, was the FACT (isn't that what the news is for?) that he was the no.1 donator, in the entertainment industry, supporting 39 charity organisations.....and yet, the media just had to focus on spreading rumors and lies about an individual giving his best to inspire others to do good deeds and through his music..... very unjustified. Admittedly, in retrospect, at the age of 6, I had teased Michael Jackson, due to other people teasing him too, because of sources which had incorporated information that lead people to disrespect him and where did people get this information from? The media.
    Now? The media hails him as "The King of Pop" because he has died, in complete ignorance of how they had gave me hell, just for the heck of it, because it would make a good story and to show they are really the good guys here.
    Not to mention how corrupt authorities use the media as a subtle and pivotal influence towards humanity. (Hitler anyone?)
    There's only one type of expository medium that I like and that is documentaries, sure they can be biased at times, but at least it delivers in informing and EXPLAINING why people do things....such as the psychology etc. not like the news "The boy killed.... etc." with no reason whatsoever.

    The media marginializes groups of people with their religious beliefs, which evokes constant heated arguments over religion, that can easily turn abusive.
    Most politics and corrupted authorities use the medium as a negative influence, why would they do that? obviously.... to gain money and to encapture people within their viewpoints, so they may benefit from it, this then leads to how people hate the rich and the rich hate the poor etc. people are divided into groups. It's because of the previously mentioned that people then have the notion that money and objects are a necessity and forget spiritual values.....this leads to materialism in the world. The previously mentioned then leads to racism, prejudice and intolerance. In extreme cases, all these will inevitably lead to violence and crime, which then aid to the negative mindset that "Everyone is out there for themselves". We pay taxes to help the media in feeding and exposing us these these negative views. (Perhaps taxes are a part of this after all.)

    Now people always say that humans are entertained with pessimistic ideas and stories, maybe this is true they are ENTERTAINED....but I prefer being INSPIRED more.
    If you lived back then when there was a lot of racial segregation, would you rather want to be in a negative mindset because of 100 stories about there having been a lot violence between black people and white people and mope around all day, with no hope for society OR would you prefer listening to Martin Luther King deliver his speech and the exposure of all the actions he has taken to mitigate the racial discrimination and be inspired to get off your ass and help in some way, because there is hope and faith.

    In all honesty, I really do think the media is mostly responsible, where else do we get our information from? It all links to the expository domains.

    Animal testing: Why you are so cruel that you want pink eyelashes and you pay for them that they can do this? It makes you who do this all.

    I hate lying compnys which do horrible things and society and leaders who support it. It is disgusting.

    Original: http://lovelydarkanddeep.org/images/caged.bear.jpg

    I hate when people do not see where things come. I hate when they continue and deny all. I hate when people turn backs to all of this and continue giving money by using their products.

    I hate when people close their eyes on this all and continue use products and life style which destroy all living creatures. I hate I can not stop this alone, I hate it when I need each of you to stop this all but you just laugh. I hate when one specie destroy all others and is so cruel also at the same specie. I hate our leaders which are insane and let this all happend. It should stop now, on this minute, there is no excuses to continue it another minute anymore.

    I hate people detroy all water, air and ground. I hate their blidness when they can not see human race can not survive without them. Not without plants and not without smallest or bigger other species.

    This is hell

    We have all, we have planet earth, we should love and take care of it, not destroy it.

    I don't hate anybody. I dislike lies and deception in general. Would very much like people were more tolerant.
