Should hate be regulated or punished


What's the best way to ELIMINATE hate?  Maybe
"eliminated" is asking too much..  Maybe it's too hard..  Maybe we should live with it. 

Or, maybe hate is a GOOD thing, and shouldn't be ELIMINATED at all..

I guess it depends on who or what is hated. Got any examples?

Like, I hate sex offenders, child molesters, rapists.

I do not hate people who have an opinion which is different from mine but still doesn't hurt others.

Who is going to decide what constitutes hate?

Would regulating what some may consider to be hate not be an infringement of free speech?

Would such a restrictive practice not serve to veto the unfettered publication of truth and deny platform to those whose views don't fit in with the narrative of the political elite's ideology agenda?

Once you start to legislate what can, and cannot be expressed you're on the slippery slope to totalitarianism.
