    Default Radical Evil in human nature?

    Dearest NFs?

    How do you go about convincing yourselves that it is not really there?

    I don't. It's there. It's not necessary, though.

    step 1 buy a a puppy pitbull or other potentially violent critter
    step 2 fall in love with said critter, complete with slobbery fun
    step 3 get bit or something
    step 4 still like him
    step 5 think of people like that

    Step into my metaphysical room of mirrors.

    So thats just ignoring the problem and not attempting to talk yourself out of believing that it exists. But is this reall how you cope?

    The evil is not necessary? Or pretending that it doesnt exist is not necessary?

    I think that is an assumption that you have come up with.

    We may seek out the best in people and in the world but we are not oblivious to people natural desires. If that makes any sense.

    To pretend to be completely oblivious to any potential "evil" in people is probably unwise and naive. Everyone has an equal potential at birth to be either "evil" or "good," people lean more towards one side or the other throughout their lives. I think that the "radically evil" people in the world are really people with good intentions, but horrible ways of implementing those intentions....or simply insane...

    The evil is there, but it's not necessarily in all people. My experience with people has been that most of them rise above it, rejecting it.
