Mean. We're all bad, even if we're not murderers or thieves.

On the other hand, I'd go for another option: most people are CRAZY!!!! We're all insane, living on this little blue and green ball of our's, thinking our thoughts, making our films, writing our books, dreaming our dreams, when half of it doesn't matter at all. We think the world is our oyster, when the oyster isn't even our's. We are insignificant, yet one human can change the world as we know it. We are born naturally defenseless, blind, helpless, yet we rule over the animals, some of which are ten times larger, ten times more powerful than us. We look up to other people, who are just that when it comes down to it: other people, same as us, but different. We make divisions where there are none, neglect to see where divisions could be made, and half of us don't know why humans were put on this earth in the first place.

A quick example of human craziness: Some Victorian bloke with a beard comes back from a tropical holiday and writes a book saying about how we all started out as a close relative of pond-weed, which in turn started out as nothing. Then the pond-weed became a monkey, and then the monkey thought, "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if I stood up straight!". Voila, the human race with all its un-monkey dreams, hopes and fears appeared. And people accepted this bloke's ideas as facts. He must have been suffering from sunstroke. Still, you would have thought that human egos would have resented such a theory, wouldn't you?

Ergo, I argue that most people are crazy. It's quite fun being crazy.

I'd like to think most people are good deep down on the inside. You just have to keep digging.

I believe humans are innately good, but we allow things/experiences/situations to corrupt us.
