But how do you know this is a result of nature and not nurture? We have yet to live in a society without coercion and oppression. Perhaps in a truly free society, people would develop in better ways? Perhaps. I'm a Lutheran so I'm cynical about human nature. I also studied history in college, so th...

If one goes out in the world, and meets the right people, one would obtain a more nuanced view of humanity, I believe.

I don't believe most people are indifferent to the suffering that's going on in the world. I sense that you might have misinterpreted me. When presented with illustrative evidence of what's going on, say, in India when it comes to COVID, I find that people are not "indifferent" at all. Wh...

This is an ugly tribal conflict that people try to justify through religious arguments.

I think this scene is likely to be cut
