Worship and the hatredWorship and hatred may be antonyms as they appear but both are interlinked to each other. I am not going to discuss these two words to improve our English but how they affect our daily life.
We can observe the tendency of showing favoritism to someone either by ourselves or by others because of some good quality we notice on the other side. For example, take a Cinema hero. None of us are exception to this and we may like a hero or a heroine because of his or her action or mannerisms or beauty, whatever it may be. Thus the excessive limit of praising a hero or heroine would be considered as idol worship. Same is the case with our political leaders and we all are influenced by one or the other, either a political leader or a political party. No matter we like them or not. There should be a striking balance in exhibiting our loyalty or praise or worship , as the case may be.
But the problem starts when we go on praising a person or a thing beyond certain point, it becomes too much sweeter and the other person who would be hearing you would be unintentionally start disliking the person or thing, that is being portrayed as superb or fantastic. I don't want to name an English news channel but the presenter of the programme creates an atmosphere that he is the only patriot and others are not, he argues as if he only represents for the cause of patriotism and he is the Messiah of the national Patriotic movement in the country today. Sometimes it backfires, the viewer gets bored.
Thus unintentionally overpraising someone or over-talking about a subject like 'patriotism' would become monotonous and results in creating embarrassment or an undeclared hatred towards a person who was being talked about. What do you say about this?
