Fear and hate have been the driving force behind, most of the wars that have been waged throughout human history. Why can't we just live and let live? Is it because we see things as, right or wrong? Are the one with the might always right? Because of their power and the ability and willingness to use force?
     Now don't get me wrong, I understand a few wars had legitimate reasons and the ends justified the means of why they needed to be fought. From my prospective, fear and hate seems to have replaced love and compassion. That yelling louder than anyone else seems to have replaced having an open debate, where listening and understanding each other's point of view. Without being demonized for not agreeing. Referring to some people as "those kind of people" as if they are beneath the person who is speaking. Has yelling so loudly that no one else can be heard, is that really freedom of speech?
