The paper considers hate speech and politically correct speech as two extremes in social relations. Shaping of human consciousness depends on basic human feelings of love and hate whose denoting, understanding and interpretation is acquired through socialization. This process of shaping is determined by using the words and language in formation of terms and speech. The interiorization of socially allowed ways of using language controls social relations, and enables potential forms of manipulation and expression of power towards others or different people. The purpose of the paper is to shed light on the causal-consequential relationships between these two social phenomena. In the conclusion, we will point out insights on how hate speech and politically correct speech are used as antipodes to cover up the ideological nature of social system.
