WHICH IS IT?
Human nature is neither inherently good, nor inherently evil. Instead we should consider the operating conditions or environment in which human beings exist, which influences behavior to a great extent, thus creating the current human condition.
HUMAN BEINGS ARE PROGRAMMABLE
Much like computers, if a human being has a bad “file system format” (Conditions during a child’s formative years) a bad “operating system” (culture) and bad “software programs” (erroneous, rigid, dogmatic beliefs), their “output” (behavior) onto the “screen” (life) will be bad and will contribute to the detreating conditions on a mass scale.
Like a computer, the behavior of a human being will largely depend upon its programing. (The quality of the information put into it, which enables it to process and create efficiently.)
Garbage in: garbage out. Quality in quality out.
