Where does the hate come from?

Responding to the recent episode of political violence, Ben Carson stated: “Unfortunately, there’s a lot of extremism coming from all areas. It’s one of the biggest problems that I think is threatening to tear our country apart. We get into our separate corners and we hate each other, we want to destroy those with whom we disagree.” In this episode we examine the historical and philosophical origins of what Carson called hate, the emergence of tolerance, and Liberal-Democracy's attempt to contain hate, reduce violence, and create free and open social and political spaces.
