Mark Mercer: Someone Please Define “Hatred Or Contempt”

Now consider the phrase “hatred or contempt.” These subjective attitudes shade imperceptibly into dislike or disapproval and finally into simply turning a cold shoulder. Who can tell whether what has been expressed is hate? The test here could very well be just that someone might feel they’ve heard hate.

The rest.
