The Election of Hate

I ran across an insightful and well-written article that I wanted to share. It’s a good reminder of what my friend, the Venerable Dhammadipa wrote to me yesterday, and represents a path forward. Here is an excerpt and the link to the whole article below:

We’ve got to stop acting out hate. I see no less of it in the liberal media than I do in the right-wing. It is just better disguised, hiding beneath pseudo-psychological epithets and dehumanizing ideological labels. Exercising it, we create more of it. What is beneath the hate? My acupuncturist Sarah Fields wrote to me, “Hate is just a bodyguard for grief. When people lose the hate, they are forced to deal with the pain beneath.”
