Thread Name: BS: The Power of Habit and Hate
Subject: BS: The Power of Habit and Hate
A profoundly healthy mudcatter recently wrote "(It makes me laugh) watching my country slide into a cesspit of its own making. I can't do anything about it, so I might as well just laugh it off."
The illness sets in when powerless people allow the self fulfilling habit of hate to evolve into revenge and start shooting random people to satisfy their frustration.
The habit of hate includes an element of some revenge. It may stay in that feedback loop for years but can snap at some point. There is a book called the The Power of Habit which illucidates these ideas further.
