It could be true – in many cases! I mean, come on, why would anyone – really want puritanical governments – when they can have web cam world 24/7? Anyway, I’m not saying some puritans are not coming from a true heart – but I really believe many are sadists – who love hate so much, it dwarfs the sex drive.
Note: I speak of racial hatred – but really I mean any kind of drive to suppress human beings – other than in an sexual environment.
But, is it possible to be a puritan – without hate? Sure, but I think – more than not – it isn’t. That’s why religious people are always slammed with the “self-righteous” label.
