Rhobin chose an interesting topic this time. Good vs evil – is it inborn? Does environment play a part? Do situations in life cause a person to change?
How many times have you heard people say after a serial killing, but he always seemed so nice?I believe that it can be all or a mixture of these things. I truly believe that occasionally a person can be born evil – irredeemable. Most likely it is from the environment; parenting, siblings, school, the physical home, bullying, even nutrition and definitely the love they receive or don’t. But even then, two people, even twins, could be raised exactly the same and one becomes a minister and the other a murderer. I have no explanation for that one.
The other situation is when disaster hits. Someone’s family is murdered, or they are fired from a job. This critical incident can turn that good person into a killer.
If they have a history of violence and cruelty and show no remorse at any time, I would say they are irredeemable.
It’s much easier to discuss how a person turns evil, but a truly good person can develop out of similar situations. They can be born good; always happy, always helping people.Their environment can help, especially if one person shows an interest and is their mentor. And again, after a major incident such as killing someone and going to jail. They may change and become a good person.
It’s an interesting topic and I’d love to here what others have to say. I’m off to read the other blogs on this topic. Please join me and check out:Skye Taylor http://www.skye-writer.com/
