RE: Comment #406384 by thomas guihen:

"...in a nutshell, human nature, or to be more specific, the dark side of it, the side that we all have to a greater or lesser extent. I'm afraid there's not much we can do about that one, just batten down the hatches and hope we come up smelling of roses."

Oh, and battening-down the hatches just works so well.
And that's where I think religion (and many political and philosophic ideas) have got it wrong. Until we humans learn to embrace/admit our 'demons', they'll bite us in the ass.
