“Poor human nature, what horrible crimes have been committed in thy name! Every fool, from king to policeman, from the flatheaded parson to the visionless dabbler in science, presumes to speak authoritatively of human nature. The greater the mental charlatan, the more definite his insistence on the wickedness and weaknesses of human nature. Yet, how can any one speak of it today, with every soul in a prison, with every heart fettered, wounded, and maimed?”
— Emma Goldman
Human nature is not a rigid, fixed thing; it is elastic, with the capacity for selfishness and selflessness existing in equal measure. It’s only our environment which pushes us in one direction more than the other.
