You know, Neet, on the political forum I am on I started a thread on this. Why is it that we always say that, given the chance, humans would descend into greed, lust for power, and evil? Why not assume that given the chance, humans would do good and kind things, and be caring?
History has shown us both elements of human nature in equal serves. But the bad things always stand out, they always seem to be winning the race.
The reason I started a thread on it over there, is because an altruism gene has been discovered - indicating that humans are actually pre-programmed, on a genetic level, to do good. That was the most uplifting thing I'd heard in months.
Ghandi said, through almost dying lips during his great fast, `When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.'
