Do you think people are essentially good?

10 Feb

Are people essentially good or in their essence bad? Now this may seem like an inane or deeply philosophical question, but what you believe about your fellow travellers will greatly affect the way you live your life. It is also a foundational belief that will form and shape the art that you create.

I realize that a lot of people in these post modern times are terrifiedĀ of living in “good and bad” absolutes; the fact that people can be both selfless and selfish is definitely beyond dispute; but what is at the very heart of the matter? What is at the heart of you and me?

What do you think? Vote in the poll below…

    Kindness is part of every good person.

    If greed is a persons motivation in life they could be classed as not a good person.
