Hatred is NEVER truly shared but joined with as a subjugation of self for a sense of relative righteousness or superiority.
Hatred can and does set up the 'other' as a scapegoat or foil over and against which to assert a self raised upon their invalidation or denial.
The mind of hatred hides or masks in the forms or appearances of love or concern, in sympathy or protection - excepting when the 'evils of the other' justify attack in righteous and vengeful self-vindication.
The answer to hate speech is to not give it currency as anything worthy of joining with or under.
Don't join in hate, or you will forget who you are for the self hate gives you instead.
That there is hatred in the human heart is evident. The attempt to eradicate or deny hated evils on others and world is its destruction - and ours.
Facing or feeling our feeling, to uncover the beliefs and definitions that the feeling is the result of is bringing the dark to the light - regardless we hate to feel hateful - but BECAUSE we want to heal rather than hide or deny.
The attempt to bring light to darkness is entering a false frame of a personal sense of power that corrupts and makes sacrifice of light and life to conflict - which is the means of denying free awareness AS light.
Guilt and manipulation are anathema to communication because they call forth hatred and attack - as our triggered 'defence'.
The Internet cannot be allowed to serve communication, any more than the mind - for it would then uncover the lack of substance in the established order or 'authority', and so defences are triggered and the devices of denial are activated.
Free speech like any communication can be usurped by manipulative agenda - knowingly or otherwise. But then it is not free speech but an alloyed communication of both signal and noise OR no intent for communication at all, but simply leverage adopting the form of a communication.
I do not have to associate or join with anything that I feel undermines integrity in myself or others - but that does not mean I am in a position to judge others.
The wish to judge others and play in its fantasy or act it out upon them is the symptom of a lack of self integrality. But finding the sins of others and hating them there is not freeing ourself of our own, but it is a primary defence against our own exposure.
Self hatred is the underlying conflict that the world was made to hide. Everyone makes a slightly different world by nature of the particular forms of self judgement or rejection that set our personality structure. identifying in the mask is at the expense of sharing in the true. But within the mask there IS no truth but what is made up or used to mask in. If what we WANT is out of alignment with what we ARE then dissonance and conflict serve an eventual correction or healing. It may be RIGHT to want love, power and freedom - but completely wrong to set these in terms and conditions of futility and destructive or hateful assertion.
That a collective identity can generate a 'shutdown' of communication as a result of triggered fears is not obvious when everyone sees everyone else as being the cause or justification for polarising into hateful or exclusive identity.
