Hostile Intentions Never Result in Peaceful Governance

Reader comment on item: Spelling Out Israel Victory
in response to reader comment: No nation has ever been established solely on hate

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Aug 30, 2022 at 11:49

Reader 'thereisnosantaclaus' purports that no nation was ever organized from (has ever been established solely on) hate; to which this observer has a potential candidate that might actually fulfill that requirement in the processes that today are mimicked in progressive political takeovers around the globe.
Candidate number one is the former Soviet Union, the beginnings of which are smeared in the blood of the royals; but not only the royals, but the multiple millions that were considered expendable in order to achieve the maxims of Marxism as perverted by the Bolshevik apparatchik to assume revolutionary supremacy. Other revolutionary changes for the sake of democracy did not necessarily achieve the same level of bloodthirstiness, but freedom was sought in most of those instances, not revised ambitions of empire.
On opposition to the premise, the nation of Israel was not reformed for the sake of hatred, but in spite of it. It remains to be seen how far the hatred for Israel will be taken before the world falls on its own sword for trying.
