Yup. The questions you raise will keep vloggers busy from now 'til Armageddon.
It is so true that the most dangerous animal on earth is a human with nothing left to lose.
Very well put. We've taken the challenge out of most necessary processes,..which may be why those who don't even NEED to,.. still prey on others, lie, cheat, steal, kill,....maybe because it is at LEAST a challenge? Great vlog !

Great points well made.

I agree...it isn't about "good" or "bad." We keep painting ourselves into corners by labeling our own behavior! The concept of survival used to be simpler because the world was more limited. Now we have to "survive" on so many levels. It's not about just food and shelter anymore...

I'm not sure I compleatly agree... you can check my video for my opinion. but while I find societal rules to be a poor reference point for good or bad I still think there is a type of good or bad that exists outside/beyond those rules, for example killing out of need is neither good or bad but finding pleasure in killing is evil and I think that is something certain people are born with and others are not, also some of those people learn to control it and others don't I don't think games, movies and books which glorify killing help if you are exposed before your mind has fully developed help... but still I think there are those among us who are born Devils and Angels... If anyone can change my mind on that you could... Great vlog made me think a lot...

In the immortal words of Jessica Rabbit: "I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way."

haha Jessica Rabbit rocks! Cozz, yeah it is a question that makes me think a lot. I can not be 100% sure on any of it, but as you point out sometime, there is less violence in some places than in others. I think if people were more concerned about survival and more focused on it, they would harness their energy into it instead. Their will always be brain damaged people... but then are they bad or are they sick/broken? What made then that way? A lot of the time it is a chain of events that happened to them, in the modern world that helped push them to crazy. lol....
anyway,...yeah if gives lots to think on... ~smiles~

There are so many people who have everything they need in order to survive and yet they still do things without care to the negative effects their actions have on others. Is it greed? Is greed a survival instinct...? Is it the "hoarder" in us..?

Thanks for such a thoughtful response!
