Okay so there's a book by William Golding called "Lord of the Flies". It's basically about these guys from a boarding school being stranded on an island with no rules and harsh survival tactics.
Golding wrote this novel to express what he believes about the human nature known as "evil". He believes that we are all evil and without rules/laws and conduct, the world would be in complete and total chaos. He believes that we learn to "love" and we learn right from wrong, but where situations take place, our nature deprives our bodies and reveals itself in horrific manners such as murder/abuse/rape/etc.
Just recently, I've been a part of a serious and tense debate in my English ll gate class. About half believed that we were born evil and half believed that we learn evil. The debate was gruesome and choking. In the end, it seemed that those who said that we were born evil expressed more facts/opinions over those who said we learn evil. And realize that the bible says that we are born evil in one of its verses.
WHAT DO YOU THINK???
[Are We Are Born Evil And Taught Right From Wrong] [OR] [We Are Born Pure and Taught Evil]
