Are people good (in general)?

I like to think so. I think if you give people the opportunity to be good they will. I also think if you oppress people long enough, feed them on a steady diet of negativity, they can do some very terrible things. I’m not excusing bad acts. It would be great if we could all […]

I like to think so. I think if you give people the opportunity to be good they will. I also think if you oppress people long enough, feed them on a steady diet of negativity, they can do some very terrible things. I’m not excusing bad acts. It would be great if we could all just summon the moral courage to conquer the demons in our situation. For many in this world a lack of any real opportunity to escape their situation sucks the hope out of life. Without hope it’s hard to get out of bed in the morning. I hope I never take for granted the many opportunities afforded to me by my parents and the place where I happened to have been born. Hope burns eternal and for that I’m eternally grateful!

I think people are good hearted! You can’t be all the time the best version. You can strive to the good side of u! Everyone is good, but actions speaks louder! We should give people a platform to show us their good act! ❤️

In my humble opinion, humans are naturally neutral. The environment is the ultimate judge. The way someone is raised and the place and people that surrounds him will determine his future. Of course I am saying this the way I am seeing this which also refers back to my point… And let’s not forget that they are unpredictable in most cases so yeah.

Without guidelines, and with anonymity, people revert to their basically not-good-ness.

I was explaining to my daughters recently that when people do good things, it’s either because they have a moral reason, such as faith, etc., or they do them so their own life goes smoother. Ppl without a moral guideline tend to do good only when it serves themselves. A person may be kind to others, but does so in order to have a easier life. People are basically self-serving. In my opinion, this means they are basically not “good”.

Hello All,
in my understanding, people generally are neutral as yng Vild put. they are neither good nor bad. goodness or badness is just a form of energy which has opposite polarities. so it depends on the input, the respective output we get. and moreover goodness or badness is just a matter of perception. if something is good for me might not be the case same for the other person. but yeah normally people tend to be kind and good-hearted.

Love and light. >3

Hey, great thread! Reading everyone’s comments on here feeling yeah I can relate and understand. I totally agree about giving an opportunity for a person to bloom and shine however best that they can in their own way and pace because people bloom differently. At that time we get to learn from each other how it is we grow and tick, and that diversity interests me. People are generally good and after that, it will fluctuate because life often does.

Each of us has these positive and negative sides. The behavior of a person depends on the people and environment that surround that person. Are people good? Well people are originally good, people only become bad relatively to their surroundings that triggers their inner negative sides . I believe people have more good side than bad side. But still it’s up to each of us (people) ,which side we choose to nurture.
