My mistake

I meant to say that I couldn't disagree with you more about the nature of the human heart being as black as coal.

Each individual is utterly unique.

However, your point about the dark nature of man is another reason why no man ought to be able to harm another with impunity.

The one characteristic that distinguishes government from society (or individuals in government from those in society) is they have claimed the power to harm others with impunity. And they do. Is this because the nature of man's heart is black as coal...or does power corrupt the heart of man? Either way, government is a super minority of people and I don't know how you can determine the state of one man's heart by the actions of another man.
Thanks for making me think.
