Thanks for taking the time. Your position is not uncommon and it's great that we can get to the bottom premise and take a look at them. Just to clarify my point; people are inherently bad, but we have a great capacity for good. I have three kids and I can tell you that I have never once intentionally taught my kids how to lie, steal, be selfish, and fight. In fact, I teach them the opposite. Yet somehow they from a very very young age tend towards those behaviors. I have to teach them to share and be nice, not to fight and be selfish.
