that people are inherently bad. People learn over time a philosophy that guides their actions.
Without guidance or the ability to communicate complex ideas, men would behave much like animals in the wild. Do animals kill each other beyond the necessity for survival (for food, for rights to procreate, or protection of their domain)? Even in the event of two males fighting over a female, animals rarely kill one another. This suggests to me that animals are inherently peaceful. Only when there is an ability to learn do animals develop mal-intent. Humans are no different.
