Human Nature

Because so much violence exists around the world today, because everyone sees it on TV or outside their homes, within their governments, within their families, many are under the impression that violence is an inherent human trait of the human condition. However, an argument can be made that violence has only really become an issue ocer the last five or ten thousand years.

  1. While it is true that violence has only become an issue over the last few thousand years, your point is also invalid. Let's remember what happened over the last few millennia: mankind got intelligent, that intelligence grew by leaps and bounds to what it is today. What happens when mankind get's more intelligent, it wants more, and those who want more begin to go to war or to hurt others to get just that, more.

    Concluding, while your faith in humanity is admirable, it is also naive. Your argument is invalid.
