thought of expanding it on to here for people's opinion, Are people born evil or does the world change them?
It's always nature vs nurture to some.......
Psychology tells me that it's not nature.......It's nurture...
People are born without a brain, then when a fetus develops one, it starts to take in a process information....... Alot of personality development
happens in the womb.
A baby will have either lot's of personality or rarely any personality...
Environment plays a huge part in developmental growth...
I'm sure I don't need to keep explaining this one as I hope you all get the point.
Murderers aren't born murderers, something snaps... Usually they form a negative in their early years.
Whether it be neglect, abuse of a physical or mental nature, taunting, ect... the list goes on... think of negative things and there you go. Some
people react more sensitively to these issues...
When they react it's usually "i'm going to get the world back" or they become obsessed with violence and they want to try it and then keep doing
it because it doesn't phase them..
This is such a big topic I could go on, but the gist of my post is that children are products of their environment... Whatever happens to them in this
environment will ultimately mold their being into either a successful upbeat grow up, or dark negative and deliquent/criminal..
So many people are filled with anger and hate, but it's because of their environment.....Anger and hate breeds more of it not less of it.
