Thanks for the topic Helga,

Am I understanding correctly that your argument is: "Human Nature" is not to be violent, aggressive, deceitful, manipulative… Machiavellian, greedy, and ecologically dimwitted?

You are not actually arguing whether or not that description is apt to the current state of human affairs? If that is an accurate depiction of the present human condition (it sometimes seems that way these days) -- it just can't be laid at the feet of our innately flawed humanity, correct?

If it isn't an accurate description, what would be? If it is, what is the cause (if not human nature), what is the cure? Take several paragraphs to solve that last bit about fixing the entire sorry state of human relations if you need to. ;-) Thanks
