    How do you think humans evolved over time?

    Through this question, I don't mean to ask about the biological evolution but more on through the philosophical aspect. I mean to say do you think humans are born good and society makes them evil or can it be vice-versa? In either cases, in this time, or this year, do you think that overall, we are growing to be more selfish, more focused on money and ultimately I guess the question is what happened to the love and care humans used to have? Has money changed us that much over the years?

    I think that we are more aware of what people are 'becoming'...selfish, generous, kind, unkind...whatever we are becoming is known almost the minute we think or feel it because of the global access to our lives.
    I personally do not think that we are worse or better than at any other time in history. I just think that we hear about and know about what others are thinking and feeling everywhere on the globe so it may seem like there is more 'eviil' happening because sadly bad news travels at lightning speed.

    It's pretty much the way you've described. If you put aside people with psycopath genes (try this link for an interesting article about the subject : … =127888976), infants in each new generation are moulded into selfish and destructive personas during their vulnerability periods -- when they are most open to learn and assimilate newfound behaviour patterns without judging their morality. Considering the evil tutors of today were once victims of their predecessors, it is safer to say that not the society of a given era, but the ruling socio-economic system is responsible from this social degradation. Modern theories indicate a back-and-forth movement between capitalism and socialism as decades pass, neither of them having proven to be adequate to overcoming societies' problems or just consistently applicable without creating problems of their own. Obviously nations, generations and civilizations have been put to a perpetual quarrel under these two poles, in order to take advantage of their frustration and channel it away from home, instead of honestly seeking for the perfect balance. Now that people have started to remove their blindfolds and take control of their lives, it's going to be much harder to manipulate them through empty ideologies or stereotypical colours and banners.

    For human beings, these are the best of times and the worst of times -- and that is the way things have been ever since the "beginning of time," and they will be that way until the "end of time."
