How do you perceive the true nature of Man, Victor?
Do you think it's a reasonable animal, do you think it shares a fragment of divine light within his soul, or do you rather think it's a selfish parasite always thriving on the expense of others, and that has to be tamed by brute force if it wants to get civilized?
Or something else?
What is the nature of Man?
"A man who only drinks water has a secret to hide from his fellow-men" -Baudelaire
I tend to agree with Pascal on this one:
"What kind of freak is man! What a novelty he is, how absurd he is, how chaotic and what a mass of contradictions, and yet what a prodigy! He is judge of all things, yet a feeble worm. He is repository of truth, and yet sinks into such doubt and error. He is the glory and the scum of the universe!"
Man has his good traits, but he also has his bad traits. You have to take both natures into account to truely understand(and even appreciate) man in his fullness.
