H/A/T/E Groups and the Formula For Self Destruction

This is an addendum to my essay on the Formula for Self-Destruction and it also addresses new hate groups around the planet and why they grow.

Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Khorasan, Boka Haram, Hamas, Taliban, Teabaggers, KKK; Nazis, Cliven Bundy and his ilk. 

What do these groups all have in common? 

Hubris + Avarice + Tyranny + Evil. A cascading formula for self destruction otherwise known as...simply, HATE. 

As logical as war seems to "correct" the situation with these groups, it only seems so. I've learned the hard way....HATE only begets more hate. 

We need to apply some science here. Part of what creates these groups is lack. The Arabic groups are fueled by drought, hunger, and oppression...and so they project and find new members from those who lack. 

Climate change has a gigantic effect on the expansion of these enemies. People turn to the dark when their own light has been robbed. 

More green, less mean. 

I know that sounds funny, but it makes logical sense. In order to lessen hate, we've got to replace it with love...if not directly, then with love of our world. 

Earth is all we have, and in order to share its bounty with our fellow humans, it makes sense to look at the big picture...droughts are a major reason why people go nuts. Hunger can create a lot of fear and we all know what fear creates.
