The opposite of love is not hate, but indifference. Showing hatred towards anyone is bad enough and, in some cases, can rightly be a punishable offence, such as homophobia and racism. However, at least when hate is shown, the recipients’ existence is acknowledged. The greater crime of indifference is not punishable – but consider the foreign perception of the UK, where in most cases “Scotland and Wales do not exist”.
