The cause for human aggresion
Do you belive the human lust for violence is something we are born with, a part of our genetic heritage. Or just a product of our enviroment.
If you belive it is a part of our genetic makeup do you belive we will ever be able to controll it or will it be our downfall?

Im undecided. When I look at individuals I most of the time se calm, loving people not wanting to harm anyone else and that feel violence is sickening.
But put those same people into a big group and a good speaker can make them do anything(just look at nazi germany, or fundamentalists). So it seems like it some kind of pack behavior that overrules the individual distaste for aggression. But how the hell is that possible? Any shrink in the building?

I believe we are born with a desire to do evil... Evil being relative... But never the less, i think that it is something that we can never get rid of... And I agree that the environment increases our chances of exposing it.

why do ppl forget we are animals... you are boring wantin to eat, to do that you have to kill... killin is evil in definition, whether thats a cow, or person.. its the same act.. ending somethings life.. i think we should embrace our animalistic predispositions

I beleive that u can be born and raised to NOT have a violent side/instinct, i believe i was born and raised that way.
I also beleive that a violent side/instinct can be implanted in you at a later stage in life! Ever since i started my new job i havent gone a day without wanting to kick someones a$$!!
