    Most people don't see themselves as being a bad people!
    Just about everyone has friends, family, or co-workers who will testify that they are a nice or good person.
    Nevertheless it's human nature for us to judge people based upon limited information or our initial interaction with them.
    It's possible they're just having a bad day, had a fight with a loved one, just lost their job, going through a divorce, under a number of stressful situations, or simply haven't had much in their life to be "happy" about. Some folks need help coping with life issues.
    In other instances it may be the result of being hurt and taken advantage many times that causes a person not to be "proactively friendly" towards people until they've (earned) his or her trust. Being guarded and cynical is their defense mechanism.
    From their point of view it's not that they're "choosing not to be good" but rather trying to avoid being made a fool of or hurt (again). It's nearly impossible to upbeat/positive with that attitude.
    Deep down everyone wants to be liked, loved, admired, accepted, or respected by someone! Their "circle" may be small.
    Some people do believe they have to be mean to get ahead!

    Depends on your definition of "good".
    There is always a minority that chooses to disregard social and religious rules for personal gain and pleasure. Evil can be defined as taking pleasure in the harm of others, while selfishness and self-centeredness can hurt others unintentionally or as a byproduct you don't care about.
    One modern problem is liberals defining themselves and only those who absolutely agree with them on everything as moral. This lets them say I'm liberal so I'm good - and they can demonize all who disagree as evil. It lets liberals ignore what others say because the other side is de-legitimized as stupid, evil, crazy. The problem is compounded by liberals saying let's ban hate speech, when they've already labeled all speech by the dissenting side as only driven by hate, so they get to demand total silence and get false consensus by enforcing "hate speech" on conservatives.
    You get outright fascism when the political left says "your speech is hate speech, it is an attack on me, say that again and I can hit you or kill you because your words equal violence". That's how you had liberal hate mobs beating up a black homeless woman defending Trump's star on the walk of fame, saying it was her fault for spewing hate. In that regard, liberals labeling themselves good and all others evil enables fascism.
