I Hate You

| | Comments (0)

My latest song is "I Hate You." I wrote it last week while witnessing an intense Palin-phobic hatefest. I recorded it tonight.

I don't know about you, but I personally believe that it is a pretty terrible thing to hate people just because they disagree with you. This is a pluralistic society, necessarily. There's nothing you can do to change that. And you shouldn't try. Embrace it. It's part of the reason we have the system we do. As James Madison wrote in Federalist 10:

"There are ... two methods of removing the causes of faction: the one, by destroying the liberty which is essential to its existence; the other, by giving to every citizen the same opinions, the same passions, and the same interests."

If you lash out at everyone who supports McCain/Obama/Rossi/Palin/Gregoire/Universal Health Care/tax cuts/oil drilling/tax increases (by no means an exhaustive list) as some moron/idiot/scum/evildoer, then, friend, you're part of the problem.

I Hate You

I hate you
You are nothing like me
I hate you
We can never agree
I hate you
We have different beliefs
And that's reason enough
I hate you

If not for you we'd all be fine
All problems would be solved
It really ought to be a crime
For you to be involved

You threaten what I want to have
Coz you want something else
You cause all of my problems
You destroy my sense of self

Someday I pray the world can see
That you are not at all like me
We need to always all agree
To be forever truly free

You don't have to change all you are
Just all that's meaningful
I'll tolerate you just as soon as
You are tolerable
