    Is hate a fear-reaction? A commy told me that once when we was talking about nazism.

    Me being sincere: When i "hate" somebody i want to utterly defeat him in manys ways i could find. And like make him a "hole in the time". I dunn sense fear during that. I think this statement does not hold.

    Hate is probably a step-by-step thing. Happen only when u get to know people deeper. Random violence is usually based on prejudice or not liking somebody's looks. Hate develops.. as i said.

    (therefore it is PREVENTABLE !!)

    I think hate is more derived from the emotions of disgust, inferiority and anger than it is from fear.

    The primary emotions are happiness, sadness, fear, anger, surprise and disgust. The secondary emotions include embarrassment, jealousy, guilt, pride and inferiority. The background emotions include well-being, calm, tension and sexuality.

    Hatred is a derived emotion as mentioned above. Inferiority is a derived emotion also (from self-anger and embarrasment).

    I suspect there are as many sources of hate as there are of love.

    Yes, fear, particularly of the new or unknown, is definitely one source of hate.

    When we feel threatened by something, we wish to destroy it in order to remove the threat; that a good working definition of hate.

    So, as in any good argument, we need a definition. What kind of hate are we talking about?

    I respectfully disagree. Modern psychology theory teaches that hatred derives from disgust, anger and feelings of inferiority. And for all the examples of hatred from history or personal experience I can think of, this analysis works rather well.

    If you believe as you stated, please give an example where hatred derives from a reaction to a threat (fearfulness?), and especially if possible, show that this example excludes large components of disgust, anger or inferiority.

    Please explain how one can feel threatened by that to which one is superior?

    Profoundly annoyed, perhaps, but threatened?

    Disgust, anger and a sense of inferiority.
    Maybe.
    I find hate derives from frustration with the inability to change a situation or person or people or policy.
    The situation/person/etc disgusts us. It makes us angry. We wish to change it. We are unable to change it, not because we are inferior, or believe ourselves to be inferior, but because we simply lack the power to cause the change. That leads to hate.
    Very similar conditions, but for me the difference is an important one.
