It is said that the opposite of love is in fact fear. Love attracts, fear repels. Hatred is an aspect of fear. The person you hate repels you, makes you wish he was suffering or dead.

Now listen. All humans, with the exception of sociopaths, have an inherent empathy for each other (except when fear is involved). It's what makes us try to save someone from killing himself, and other things like that.

That said, what is indifference? Indifference is an active avoidance of that empathy. Avoidance. You don't "not care" at all. You just choose not to feel it.

Avoidance, too, is an aspect of the condition known as fear. Repellence. Do you see? It's not only the emotion of being afraid that carries the definition.
