Comment: ...we are deep down bad. We

(See in situ)

...we are deep down bad. We

...we are deep down bad. We tend towards evil, not good.

This conclusion is based on ignorance, that is, the not knowing of something. The something is the acknowledgement of domination, of control.

This control courses through history since at least 2,000 years ago and, from the biblical perspective, is what Jesus talked about. The control is from a small band of people trying to enslave everyone. Looking at geography relative to wars among disparate peoples through the past 2,000 years produces a clear picture: What you and I are fighting is what people back then were fighting, the money changers.

To control money is to control trade, and half of trade is the person. So, controlling money is to control the users of it, the persons trading. Controlling money is concurrent with building a society, and often in society historically is a centrality, and in this centrality is mandates first in money then in all other aspects of life. This process is consolidation through those dastardly cycles booms and busts. Is it any wonder how behavior changes, changes that were from contrived, or unnatural, environments that had to persist without a significant period of living naturally returning to the people who were changing? If it is a wonder to you, please see the second paragraph of this comment in this thread about the good-bad claim.

This connection is easy to make and understand and that someone of DPer intelligence doesn't recognize it surprises me.

The story then is the story now, man versus man. A very small percentage of man manipulating the rest man to control him. If a very small percentage of man has been trying to enslave mankind, wouldn't the conclusion be that the other members of mankind, the subjects of slavery who in the course of living would discover they are slaves, be good? If the majority of man was enslaving the minority of man, then the minority's slavery would have happened long ago, correct? So, how is mankind anything but good?
