Here is my question, are people in general in your humble opinions, mostly good or bad? Look at it with an overview of all of it, the huge churches, Mother Teresa, Hitler, etc. When you meet people in your daily life how many are warm and friendly, how many bitter and sarcastic? So what do you think percentage wise?

People are both and neither it's just who you decide to be.

Daily Life_ percentage wise_ is Mostly good_ you always have the Haters and the F........d up in the head ones_ from either birth or too many drugs _ or sadly from trauma , war, etc.

However some people live to be bitter and mean_ its like they get off on it- thus your abusers, killers- and pathological Liars_

How about You Bewitchey_ in your current life meetings? :)

One need only to look at themselves to answer this. People are, for the most part, good people until they are crossed, betrayed, tempted or confused. How one deals with these things determine if we cross the line and "go bad."

Everybody has a little of both, choices and circumstances determine which way we tilt as we age.

I think people are mostly good, a few whack jobs out there but mostly good... and I think everyone is capable of going off the deep end and doing something "horrible"....but that doesnt mean they will, but they are capable of it, just something stops some of them....

I've worked at the front desk of hotels for 13 years now and I've come across a HUGE amount of people from all sorts of walks of life. I can tell you the majority that I'VE come across, are decent. The bad ones are typically REALLY bad and you do remember them, but the majority are not like that. I think it's the same in general. Yeah there are tons of horrible people out there, but the majority of people are not like that. Unfortunately, we pay more attention to the bad ... to the horror stories and such instead of also focusing on the GOOD. And there truly is a lot of good in the world.

Not really. Every news channel has a bias and they all love fear-mongering. The media isn't a good representation of humanity.

The news loves to get ratings so anything goes. I remember years ago a newscaster called Roseanne Scamardella, she cried over something devastating she saw in I guess her hometown in Italy, I thought it was moving, sometimes when there's a sad story on the news and the next anchor comes in with a big smile it looks pretty foolish.

I think your pretty much right on in your assessment Mom, we do hear a lot more about the bad ones and it looks like there is a rising percentage of them but I think the numbers stay at a prety close percentage and the aparent rising percentage is due to the the rising birth rate I think.

well, since I have moved, I can say, that most of the folks I meet are decent people!... Men open doors for ladies here... something that seems to be in the past in my city I moved from in So Cal... I have had more men open doors, offer me their spot in a long line, come and offer help to move heavy things they see me struggling with, come and look under the hood when I am only checking the oil... Woman, chatting it up with you in the casino, or in the grocery line... much nicer here... I am thankful that I moved!
