One cause is Man’s hatred and fear. He is scared of strange people and hates them because of this. He wants to murder that strange person. He feels that by doing this, he can live happy to know that he has defeated his enemy. But in reality, he only makes the planet even worse.

Another cause is Man’s jealousy. He is jealous of another’s special technique. He will bully that person and make him feel worthless. Doing this, he feels that he has made himself look better. But in reality, he just makes a fool out of himself.

A final cause is cultural difference. Man hates a person who has a different religion or belief than he does. He will do numerous crimes to try to correct that person’s error evening if it means murder. Doing this, Man feels that he has correct the wrong. But in reality, he is the one who has done wrong.
