Long has mankind, in its nihilistic way of viewing itself, found only evil and cruelty within the confines of its heart. But this simply can not be the case. To prove my point, allow me a moment to explain a slightly different subject.
Evil is disproportionately powerful compared to what is good. Point in case, fission. Fission contains the ability to power thousands of homes, but this takes a much a larger amount of radioactive material than the fistful required to take hundreds of thousands of lives. The analogy can be applied to many things. We learned to work metal, and made beautiful art, but who here recalls the Iron Bull? The horrific device, a great bull, hollowed, where prisoners were placed. slowly roasted, with a funnel for the mouth that turned their screams into roars.
Man has the ability to do great evil. There is no doubt. But evil grows at such an astounding rate compared to good. This will one day be our downfall, the hands of a few shall take the lives of us all.
But back to my original idea. The very fact that evil is so disproportionately powerful to good shows that man must be an innately good creature. It is the only thing that allows for us still being alive. If man was a creature born into evil, his hands would grasp our tools for destruction from his first breath. There would be no more human race. The only way we have survived is by the sheer number of positive acts outweighing the great force of the few acts of great evil.
One day, however, we shall be overcome.
