I am a hypnotist. This is usually met with an incredulous look – but recently, interestingly, I am getting the question: – “So you deal with the anxieties and phobias and hidden angst in people – so would you say in your opinion most people are bad, or inherently good?” Which is a little general and open in scope. By people I presume they mean humankind – not just a few random people. And by good or bad – I presume they mean not evil or saint like – but generous and kind or unpleasant and mean. If they do mean Saint or Evil – then of course, I believe, we have seen, and see that in individuals, but not in humankind as a whole. So if that is the question I am being asked “As humans are we inherently good or bad?” I would answer, given the right circumstances any of us can be kind and generous. And given the right circumstances any of us can be unpleasant and mean.
