Love to Hate

The people we love to hate

The Joker – a crazy chaos creator

testing our hero to show who he really is

and who we are

The people we love to hate

The bully in the children’s story

making us love the little nerd

showing that we root for the underdog

The people we love to hate

The evil mastermind in the spy movies

allowing us to recognize that we

are on the good side

The people we love to hate

The evil stepmother – especially if she has a villainous cackle

for us to discover anew that we are against the oppressor

and for the oppressed

The people we love to hate

What if the people we love to hate

are not just in stories?

  1. sometimes we don’t “know” ourselves until we are put under pressure…. then our true colors come out…. good or bad.
