How we are raised and habits learned.
- Humans are creatures of habit.
- If we develop immoral behavioral patterns, we will be immoral. (i.e. In other words, "teach your children well".)
- Habits, good or bad, will become a part of who you are and can be difficult for a person to recognize in themselves.
How we think
- Thinking is habitual too.
- We think in loops. Rehashing the same thinking habits over and over. If it’s a good thinking habit, well that’s good. If not, it can lead bad behavior.
- We often never consider that we might be wrong, preventing any hope of correcting personal errors. Self-examination can be one of those good thinking loops.
The brain and how it does not always work correctly
- The human body, which includes of course the brain, is far from perfect.
- Much bad behavior might have a root cause from biological brain malfunction
- We care very much about what others think of us.
- If we are surrounded by good people, that helps us to be good. If we are surround by bad people, that influences us to be bad.
What is a good person?
- No one sets out to be a bad or evil person. To do so intentionally, they would already have to be bad.
- For the reasons already mentioned, a bad or evil person might not recognize themselves as being those things.
- You might be bad and evil and not even realize it.
