The closer you get to someone, something, some brand, some organization... the harder it is to demonize it, objectify it or hate it.So true. Them--our perceived "enemies"--are really not so bad once we make a move closer to them. Sit down together. Share our hearts. Maybe Seth is just reminding us of something Jesus taught his disciples over and over again...love one another. Sometimes to love we must be the one to make the move to engage and let others in. We generally have more in common with people than the differences that keep us apart.
So, if you want to not be hated, open up. Let people in. Engage. Interact.

I read Seth Godin's blog everyday. Recently he wrote this entry which I cannot stop thinking about.
