Hated Society Essay

1168 words - 5 pages

Philosophers around the world enthusiastically debate society and its changes, how it can survive and how to mold it. Society, by definition, is the totality of social relationships among humans; never are the words happiness, love, or hatred hinted at. Without the knowledge of any of those emotions they cannot. If societies across the world can survive on love and mercy, another can survive on hatred, power, and victory with the exception of love and devotion for the figurehead of such society.

I want everyone to be corrupt to the...
