  • Apr 26 2012: Compassion and empathy exist without love. Love is an emotion, even those without any emotions can act in a compassionate and empathetic manner.

    Hate, in a very few cases, where one leader simply hates another, may have been the cause of war, but hate is simply another emotion,

    We usually go to war for economic reasons to expand territory or resolve by force a territorial disagreement, or to gather a larger labor force; religious and ideological differences can also be the root causes of wars. In any of these cases hatred, usually stemming from ignorance and fear, is exploited by the leadership to ensure the general population, upon whom they depend, will fully buy in to an enterprise that may well cost them their lives.

    Those who initiate wars only desire to increase their wealth and power at any cost, including sacrificing the lives of anyone too foolish to see through their lies.
    • Apr 27 2012: Would you mind set a specific example for me about those without any emotions can act in a compassionate and empathetic manner?

      Hate could stem from jealousness, which could stem from reasons like economic and fossil fuel in some cases.
