Singular or plural

Just wanted a clarification:

This is a quote. "When someone says, heart wrenching piece by X a woman whose voice is like a beacon on this long,dark night that engulfs Y & one that threatens not to end given the sheer lunacy & hatred that is propagated & prevails." I am confused whether it should be... the sheer lunacy & hatred that is or are propagated & prevails. If someone can help me out.

    @learner34, the writer chooses to represent lunacy and hatred as a mixture — a single result of the propagation, and a single effect in the way that it prevails.

    He or she could have chosen to represent lunacy and hatred as two emotions, but didn't.
