“People are a product of their environment
Lists like this often claim that ‘people are inherently kind’ or ‘people are inherently the same’. I’m not sure this is true. I believe that people are a product of their environment, which means that some people are kind and some are not.
I would like to believe in a universal good that binds us all together, but I don’t think this is true. Perhaps if each of us were raised in a vacuum, we would have equally pure moral values and impulses, but we are not and I don’t believe we do.”
