And pray tell what positives have anger, hate, greed, and the like created?

I'm too tired to think of any direct, real world examples at present, but such emotions have lead to compelling fiction, at least. If these emotions weren't part of the human experience it would be impossible to use them to write conflict into a narrative.

Since you enjoy anime, I imagine you consider fiction dealing with such themes a positive, correct?


In fiction we are dealing with negative human emotions in the abstract. In reality however the negative aspects of our psyche have done too much harm to defend them in any way ,shape, or form in my opinion.

It would be a slight against ourselves to remove any emotion, even the so called "negative" ones. If I had to pick I'd pick happiness

We write them in our history books. I thought you would understand.


Because only an idiot fights angry , and because greed is only evil and motivated by uncontrolled desire. And well hate, I don't think I need to cite any specific example of why that is a bad thing . Trillions over the course of human history have died because of people's hates.



And trillions more will die because of people's hate.

I honestly don't know where you are going with this.

Greed can lead to success, greed can motivate our goals. To desire something is to realize your potential

Do you think war will end? Hate fuels war and gives people jobs. Circle of life no?

Only an idiot fights angry? If we never had anger towards someone, what is the purpose of war? Greed?

Where would we be without hate, anger, and greed? Would we actually live in a better world? We can never know because it still exists to this day, forever and always.

You think the world would be better without hate, but you have no idea what that world would look like. Only in your dreams.

Ignorance


Ignorance is not an emotion, but a general lacking of knowledge or information. Ex. "He was ignorant of the proper definition of the word."

You can't remove any single emotion without severely changing/removing a few others, but I think humans are great because of all of these emotions, so I'd opt for keeping all of them.

Check out the movie Equilibrium with Christian Bale if you want to see a decent example of a world where humans try to do away with all of their destructive emotions.

I'd choose Greed.

Jealousy, there is no positive self gain from it. Greed is indeed poor and highly undesirable but does offer something (as egotistical and selfish as it is) but jealousy causes great strain on ones own persona, and adds nothing else but stress and bother. Greed is a good answer, and perhaps a strong close second though! Or it can be a first, if that's what you truly believe ^^


I agree with both.

Greed. It's what causes most of the problems we see today.
