Hatred Vs Indifference Analysis

Almost without a doubt Indifference is worse than Hatred, Hatred can be fought against a total lack of any thought, compassion... it's like fighting with a bunch of soft pillows; Nothing much is accomplished, other than spewing feathers about the place ,Indifference is far worse than "hate". If one "hates", they still feel something. They still feel strongly enough to care enough to "hate". Hate takes lots of energy, thought and feelings. When a person is indifferent.

Many people consider that anger and hatred are the worst human attributes. The truth is that indifference is an even worse human attribute because it has no emotion, no expression and no response. In Elie Wiesel’s “Peril of Indifference”, Wiesel states, “Anger can be creative. One writes a great poem, a great symphony…But indifference is never creative. Even hatred at times may elicit a response. You fight it. You denounce it. You disarm it...Indifference is not a response.” (Wiesel, 2).

It kind of shows a loss in humanity. Through hatred, no matter how it's conceived, still shows emotion, so the individual still 'feels' strongly...no matter how flawed the judgment cannot be. That said, given the hatred towards an individual or a group, i would, myself prefer to be indifferent only for the idea that through hatred you can cause harm to another rather than considered a neutral party.Indifference, unfortunately shows the loss of what makes humans human.It is a concept from childhood. Small children being neglected die of "hospitalism" or develop violent behavior. In this early set up "hate" at least is some kind of attention when "love" is impossible to be received. Later individuals more or less learn that neither survival nor happiness depends from the attention of one single individual. Then the mechanism disappears. In
