Default More Hatred

The world is going (not so quietly) crazy.

Now people are finding it necessary to spew hatred toward fat people:

http://www.today.com/news/fat-shamin...t-these-t59196

It seems that too many people these days are anxious to spew some kind of hateful message towards
some group of people. Is this yet more tribalism? Or is it just people spewing hate in any direction
they can because they are dissatisfied with their own pathetic lives??

Interesting questions!
My guess is that your final suggestion hits the mark. People who hate others are indeed dissatisfied with their own lives, and they feel low self-esteem. One effective way of repairing one's self-esteem is to deflect the negativity from oneself to others. That results in a feeling of superiority, which temporarily relieves oneself of the feeling of being inadequate.

I have said the same thing in other threads.

Jesus better watch his back.

I wonder if the "little girl" cried herself to sleep because her raging zealot mother told her that she had renounced her god.

If we'd stop teaching children that magical mythical beings are real then none of this would be a problem. Wake up people, it is all a huge scam. See it for what it is.
