Yes, but is there really an acceptable 'evil' person that I can use as an example?
Besides, I used Hitler since he's the best example of somebody imposing their will forcefully, and because he's the personification of 'evil'. I'm not trying to make him look good or anything, I just want people to understand my point of view. That even the worst of us tend to do what we think best... and that includes the insane ones (So long as it's what they honestly want).

I would have to think that man is actually neutral until they make the decision whether to be good or bad, i find that people make their own decisions, so in a sense there isnt really a right nature to humans, humans arent naturally good, nor are they naturally evil, its the choice that they decide on their own that makes them good or evil, we are given a free will and intellect, we use this to determine what we want to do and what we dont want, since the human is neutral, its also up to the surroundings to influence what the humans outcome is, most likely if you live in a place where ur family is like a slave driver or something, you'll most likely turn out to be like them, but u have a choice to whether be like them, or not, so i think that humans arent naturally good or bad, its just their choice to BE good or bad...thought this is just my opinion dont mind me ....if you think its odd then so be it, im an odd one myself, and i admit that =P
