Is man inherently good and driven to evil by his environment or is man inherently evil and is his baser impulses civilized?

Define "good."
Define "evil."
Define "is." (never mind, I never could do a decent Clinton.)

If the desired equilibrium is a strong species capable of repelling attack and with great survival prospects, then cold-hearted warriors rule. If it's a sublime understanding of the universe and communion between consciousnesses that you're after (try saying that after a mongo martini), then peace and understanding are your sustenance.

Define your terms, draw your lines, and anything is possible.
