Critique of HatredHatred can be something that is either inborn or learned. There are many determining factors but people are plagued by the idea that a young child can show anger even when no anger is presented to them beforehand. Maybe there is something deep within us all that causes hatred to be close enough to the surface of our being that it can be conjured up at any time. Hatred for another group or person causes domination and submission in many forms; examples of this have been eminent throughout history. Just as different forms of psychology have tried to discover what hatred really is. Social Psychology would probably say that hatred is something that is learned from the group in ...view middle of the document...

But aggression seems to be a major issue if you watch any two to six year old.From personal experience I have been around a lot of children from birth to young adult meaning about 14. And in that time with these children I have noticed some consistencies, they all show hatred or aggression for something. A young child is expected to have innocence and be unbiased to certain things because they have not been exposed to the whole world yet. Like the saying, "out of the mouth of babes" children are known for being blunt but not hateful toward other people. Take for example my two-year-old nephew. He now watches a little television, he does not really get hit for being bad we have adopted the time-out method of discipline but yet he shows anger and frustration toward certain things. He may have picked up some of it from tension when people around him were angry but at the same time he has never witnesses anyone get mad to the point of hitting another person. He adamantly tells anyone of authority, "NO" if he does not like something that we are doing. He has also been known to throw things or hit another person for doing something that he doesn't want done. But this has been going on since he was a little over one-year-old. I would expect this behavior from a much older child because they would have had more exposure to such behavior either because of peers or just television.On the same note another two year old slightly older than my nephew was around parents who beat each other and he also was exposed to certain violent programs on television. He does not show any aggression, if anything he is a gentle child who loves to cuddle and quietly play. It seems funny how the child that is exposed to violence does not show any signs of aggression yet the child who is not exposed to violence shows aggression. This observation could rule out the possibility of a learned experience from outside sources. It would support the idea that some people are just born to hate.The question of whether people are born to hate naturally is a scary thought that might mean there is no changing their ways. There seems to be a lot more hate in this world than there is love for one another. So if people were born to hate a certain group, race or person then it would be very hard to undo the process and make more loving people. If people were born to hate that would clear up the age-old question of why someone committed at heinous crime like murder. The committed the murder because they were born to do so. But if they were born to do so then should they be allowed to commit the murders, after all it's in their genes. Of course we would never allow anyone to get away with murder just because they were prone to do so. That idea seems ridiculous but what can be done to change hate if it is inborn.Older children have much more experience with aggression and even hatred because they can understand the world better and people around them have more influence. A fourteen year old can...
