The Psychology of Hatred

What shelf life does hatred have? The bombings in Belgium make me wonder when these faceless haters will have had enough blood even for them. Some of us wake up in the morning loving the birds that sing, the cat that purrs beside us as we eat breakfast, the dog that looks expectantly to us with love, and our families, friends, and even those people we don’t know who delight us as we pass them on the street. Hatred is the furtherst thing from our minds as we
go about our day.
What gets them out of bed? what moves them to ever smile? Surely it can’t be the exploding bomb . What is the point of a life that just takes and takes life? what is the motivation for ending lives of those one does not even know?
Questions without answers.


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
