Hatred is what flows into the void created by the eviction of rational moral standards. No man can sustain a moral or emotional vacuum; the condition is lethal. He who holds to no standard must find someone or something to hate, lest he end up hating himself.
A totalitarian cannot and will not tolerate dissent, much less opposition. But the campaign to destroy the dissenter cannot be dispassionate, for there are no dispassionate passions. Such an undertaking must be powered by hatred.
