We’re facing an epidemic of hate. Popular liberal commentator Sally Kohn sets out to discover why we hate and how we can inoculate ourselves. In The Opposite of Hate, Kohn explores the science of hate, investigating why we do it, how we can stop, and how we can help make the world less hateful. She travels to Rwanda, the Middle East, and across the US introducing us to former terrorists, former white supremacists and even some of her own reformed Twitter trolls, drawing surprising lessons from some of the most dramatic examples of leaving hate behind. Her hopeful message: While we all have the potential to hate, and unprecedented forces are spreading the disease, we also all have the capacity to combat it. Kohn offers us the right tools. It turns out that the opposite of hate is not love. It’s understanding. Kohn offers us the right tools to understand how hate operates and how it’s fostered; how easily we fall into its grip and why. And that will lead us to a better place.
