The emotion of hate can be defined in diverse ways…. Both positive and negative. As human beings, it’s completely normal to hate somebody. Doing so doesn’t only mean you dislike someone rude to you, it can also be you, hating a person whose vibe or actions are not of your or society’s liking. You wouldn’t agree with their methods and think if it were someone else, the output could be to your liking. Voicing your opinions and criticising others is not something you should be ashamed of, it’s your right. But there are limitations to everything. Hate is acceptable, as long as one doesn’t go too far with it. Hurting someone, verbally attacking or abusing someone, targeting someone using unlawful methods or manipulating someone to do the same, etc, in the name of hate is not justified. Doing any of this or more can be considered a crime and inhumane. One shouldn’t hate cloud their humanity. On the same note, here’s a list of people who are hated the most in society, and the reason why they deserve the hate.
