Just a thought.
Yes! It's not without risk, but it's the only way.
What jan said.
I don't know, if people on this site have noticed it, but I'm a relatively nice person.
Even today, I spent ten minutes chatting with a gentleman, who tried to convert me to Christianity. I knew I was pretty much wasting his time, but since he was so nice towards me, I didn't want to hurt his feelings in any manner. I just kept chatting and even though I probably came about as an total asshole, I was trying to make him feel important. I took the literature and his contact information. And still, it really didn't make that much difference to my own life, but perhaps the attention I gave to him made some sort of difference in his.
Things are, what they are.
You are a fine human being sir.
Thank you, Donald.
Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker.
Your welcome..my friend
I must disagree. Happiness, sadness, anger, love, hate....
I believe we are born with those emotions and the lack of them is learned behavior or mental illness.
I'm not a very emotional guy until I've had too much beer, then I fall in love with everything that moves.
That reminds me of a great tune.
Love is a funny thing, so very fleeting.
That makes sense to me ;)
You can't control if someone hates on you and that shouldn't make you sink to their level...no matter what.
"The only emotions you feel are your own, so if you don't like hate speech, stop speaking hate.
"Do you see the nonsense there?"
Yes I do, that's a logically incongruent statement and I don't see how it's related to the premise I put forward.
I'm not all that clear on what viewpoint you were trying to express.
I do agree though that the people who are most ready to condemn the "hate speech" of others seem to have no compunction about verbally expressing their own hatred.
