Paris - A time to love and a time to hate

To Everything There is a Season
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together; A time to be silent and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate; A time for war and a time for peace.
- Ecclesiastes 3:8

The vid below was the response of a French man whose wife was murdered by Muslims in the Paris attacks. This is a now common response in the West - that we will respond to the Hate with Love!

But is that a proper response? Is there ever a time to hate? Below is an excellent video by Kai Murros on the subject.

    fully agree on the hate thing.
    I've never understood the constant preaching against hate and revenge.
    especially revenge is the next highly underrated concept.

    I've privately been preaching this for years: bad people do not get punished these days. they work for the enemy, get kids, and spread their genes.
    yet we, who are made to have only 1 or none kids in EU are supposed to let this go?

    hate is a word with many facets. I do not think it is strong enough in some aspects.
    we should have the absolute zealous conviction to destroy those who are trying to destroy us.
    hate is by many understood as something passive. it isn't, but the word is very broad.

  2. RAMZPAUL blogging Kai Murros?!

    The mood here is definitely changing.

  3. Wasn't it the punk rocker Johnny Rotten who sang Anger is an Energy?

  4. Poor thing, his balls must have been in his wife's handbag when she got killed.

  5. The political enemy is not a personal enemy.

    Read Carl Schmitt's "The Concept of the Political":

    As German and other languages do not distinguish between the private and political enemy, many misconceptions and falsifications are possible. The often quoted "Love Your enemies" (Matt. 5:44; Luke 6:27) reads "diligite inimicos vestros", and not "diligite hostes vestros". No mention is made of the political enemy. Never in the thousand-year struggle between Christians and Moslems did it occur to a Christian to surrender than defend Europe out of love toward the Saracens or Turks. The enemy in the political sense need not be hated personally, and in the private sphere only does it make sense to love one's enemy, i.e., one's adversary.
