  • Well of course! I think I am a good person! And for the most part my family are good people. Everyone has some good in them, but sometimes it is easier for the bad to come out!!

  • Yes, absolutely! Inevitably there is going to be suffering and 'bad' things in the world. There always has been. Ultimately, though, I think that most people are good people. Human beings have the capacity to do bad things, but we also have the capacity to do great things. I have never understood why some people take such a dim view of human nature, or why some faiths encourage us to think of mankind in this way. I really tend to be an optimist when it comes to people... we all have the ability to make choices. Therefore, we all have the capacity to make choices for good.

  • Absolutely. I know this because I'm related to some people who are genuinely good and kind. My parents, first and foremost. :)

  • Of course there are people that are still good. Are you a good person? Do you hang out with good people? There are a lot of good people, choosing to do good things and to have a positive outlook on life.

  • Of course I do. I am not a perfect person, but i am a good person. And I know many many genuinely good people. They are out there.

  • I think in general terms most people are inherently good.

  • Sure there are. It may not seem like it because the media never talks about good people doing good things. The news is all bad and depressing. That's why I rarely watch it. lol

  • People are people. We have hte capability for great evil, and wonderful goodness inside all of us.
    We aren't one or the other, we are a combination of all of our experiences, emotions and desires.
