Your first paragraph is spot on

but the second reveals a dangerous naivety to reality. Your statement could be arguably true on one level and that is a biological one. Once you enter in a humans power of rational thought and the inherent evils this makes possible each of us is different.
The first paragraph is an excellent description of how our government is turning out conscienceless individuals who will slay us with no regards to the moral consequences and if you for one infinitesimal second are under the illusion that a Buddhist, Hindu Taoist or turn the other cheek type of philosophy will deter them from murdering you then you are sadly mistaken.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.
