Obviously some people have more "darkness" than others but do you believe that the majority of people have good intentions, or not. Do you think that people who see the best in others are happier or dillusional or both?

Human's are self-driven. We do what benefits us- always have. The only exception is masochists but even then they ENJOY being harmed. An innate sense of "good" in people I think greatly depends on your definition of good. Many people commit evil acts under the impression that what they are doing is for the greater good. Also, must it be altruistic? Can a person be good if the act was kind but selfishly motivated?

Best Answer

I think that all acts of kindness are naturally beneficial to those who do them. If your intent is to gain benefit (happiness, comfort, peace) as a result of helping others I still see that as a good thing. I do think that a lot of evil acts are committed but I think it is like you said they think they are doing it for the greater good. Therefor they are not evil, they are ignorant.

HI<br />
Goodness is a value judgement. Spartans believed they did good by killing children they believed weak. It is observable that human beings are capable of believing they are doing good even or especially when killing other humans. In war for example there is a suspension of critical thought in favour of the war effort and the greater good of victory takes over.<br />
