Is this perhaps the first step towards the clinical removal of hate? If so it that a good idea?

Hate detection will surely have benifits like making sure supreme court justices aren't prejudiced against any racial groups or somesuch. 

Since hate can be quanitified what unit should it be measured in?

I don't know. One Hitler did a lot, so even a thousandth of a Hitler is still pretty nasty. One might argue that even one-twelve-millionth of a Hitler is enough hate to kill someone (depending on how many Holocaust deaths we pin directly on him, Jews and non-Jews alike), and that's still a lot. At least in contrast, the miliHelen is an accurate, proportionate measure of beauty (how much is needed to launch a single ship) since one Helen launched a thousand ships.
