I think that they are equally powerfull in that they are often two sides of the same coin.

Personally, I think the effects that hate can have and the events it can lead to are more powerful.

Hate. You can unite a nation around a perceived enemy, while "love" is seen as a sign of weakness.

on the macro level, hate.

on the micro level, love.

I would say hate is the seductive power, one that seems so easy to wield.

Love takes effort, but I believe is stronger.

Genuine love can overcome any hate. Hence, love is more powerful.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Love is more powerful on a personal level. Hate is more powerful on an impersonal level.

They are the same feeling. Love has a dark side, and it is called hate. That is literally what Star Wars was all about. In the end Luke chose to love his father instead of hate him.

True hate is born out of true love. If, god forbid, a loved one's life is taken, you might hate the culprit. That hate is born out of the love you had for your loved one. If you hate something or someone, it is because it/he/she goes against beliefs/things you love. They are the same thing. Should you give into the dark side of it, you will never be happy. However, the dark side is much more seductive and easier to embrace.

I'm telling you, this is the stuff Star Wars was all about.

Hate and love made the world and yourself as it is today. But since hating is easier to do than love, maybe love is more powerful since it takes a lot of strength and intelligence to do so

Love. I would say it hurts more to be let down by someone you love. I would also say that love can be much more uncontrollable, depending on what kind of love we are discussing. If it's love for people, it can be a very good thing, but for many, it takes effort to love everyone. I think love is a greater weapon.

If you found a way to make the weapon of 'love' as easy as using the weapon of 'hate' this world would be a much better place.
