Why is Peace losing to Hate?

Hate is everywhere.

We have racism, terrorism and many other -isms and categories of hate out there caused by people very much like ourselves.

However, when asked, all of us stand firm that we are peace-loving people and we would never do such a thing.

If so, where did we go wrong?

Why is the fight for peace losing to the fight for hate?

Why are there still innocent lives lost every single day?

Why are there still countless people being judged based on their race, religion or their appearance?
